Baby Bottle Campaign

Starting Mother’s Day and continuing to Father’s Day is our “Baby Bottle Campaign” to support and work and ministry of Ramoth House in Mount Forest – a home that supports young mothers.   Every household is encouraged to take home a baby bottle next week and fill it up with loonies and toonies and change.  Last year we raised almost $3700 for Ramoth House.  Let’s be a blessing again this year!


Grief Share is a 12 week program with direction and purpose. During Grief Share you will learn how to walk the journey of grief and be supported along the way. It is a safe place where grieving people find healing and hope. At each session, the group will view a video featuring insights from experts, personal stories of people grieving a death and dramatic re-enactments to help you through the grief process. After viewing the video there will be small group discussion about what you saw on the video and how it applies to your life. Your facilitators (John and Shirley Ferris) will have questions to guide the group discussion. Sharing your experiences will help you organize and clarify your thoughts on what is happening to you and allow others to understand how they can help you along this grief journey.

Topics include:

  • Is this Normal?
  • Challenges of Grief
  • The Journey of Grief
  • Grief and Your Relationships
  • Guilt and Anger
  • Complicating Factors
  • Lessons of Grief
  • Coping with Grief (holidays, anniversaries, birthdays etc.)
