NAMI 4-County to host Sufficient Grace Ministries on October 5th | Local health
ARCHBOLD – The NAMI Four County meeting on October 5 will be presented by Kelly Gerken, Founder and Executive Director of Sufficient Grace Ministries (SGM) based near Deshler.
Sufficient Grace was founded in 2004 by Gerken following the death of two twin daughters and later a son.
The ministry provides regional, state and global support and resources to families who have experienced pregnancy and infant loss.
Support is in person for families in Northwestern Ohio and other areas of the state, as well as parts of central and southeastern Michigan. Families who live in other areas – in the United States and around the world – can receive SGM programs online. The ministry reaches more than 1,000 families each year, according to Gerken.
The meeting, which is open to the public, will be held both in person and in a virtual meeting starting at 7 p.m. at the Four County ADAMhs Board of Directors office, T-761 Ohio 66 south of Arcbold.

Those attending the in-person meeting are strongly encouraged to wear a mask regardless of their COVID vaccination status.
Those who prefer to participate virtually should also call or email Wendy Jennings to get the meeting link to NAMI’s Zoom account.
