Churches / Watchman Program
Hospice of the Valley is supported by many area churches, and there are volunteer opportunities for church leaders, groups, and other individuals who would like to help. Representatives from area churches are encouraged to participate in Hospice of the Valley's Watchman Program and promote hospice care through observing Hospice Sabbath in November.
There are many mission opportunities for church groups of all ages. Some ways to serve include:
- Make a financial contribution for unreimbursed care
- Adopt a month to provide gift bags
- Donate small gifts for holidays, birthdays, etc.
- Donate items from the Community Bereavement Center WISH LIST
Additionally, there are several special projects available for adult and youth groups of all ages.
Spiritual care and spiritual affirmation work hand-in-hand with medical and emotional care. Based on this belief, Hospice of the Valley's Watchman Program provides an exciting local mission opportunity that allows our community to work together toward a common goal - ministering to those in need.
Hospice of the Valley will work directly with you to identify and train a representative in your congregation who will then serve as a Hospice of the Valley Watchman representative. The representative will act as a Hospice partner and be the "eyes" and "ears" for your congregation.
In addition, your Watchman representative can help your congregation take advantage of Hospice of the Valley's many free educational opportunities. We offer programs for groups of all ages and all sizes.
Held annually during National Hospice Month in November, Hospice Sabbath is set aside as a day to recognize hospice care in our community. Hospice of the Valley has bulletin inserts available, as well as speakers and other resources for churches to use. Help support Hospice of the Valley by participating in Hospice Sabbath.
