On October 27, 2013, we began our Teddy Bear Ministry at Gethsemane. Since then we have had 415 “Bears” go home to be a comfort or celebration for someone. All of these “bears” have sat through a church service, or a funeral, or a celebration, or maybe even a concert. If you have made a donation, we thank you! If you donated teddy bears, we thank you! If you have prayed for this ministry, we thank you! A special thank you to Ricco Giorgi for donating cases of teddy bears for this ministry! Wow!!!! Please continue to remember this ministry when you find new or gently used teddy bears that we could use. If you have a “bear” story to tell, we would love to hear it!
