Volunteer at Sunrise Haven
Volunteers of all ages provide Sunrise Haven’s patients, guests, and staff with an extended family and a supplemental cadre of workers to help in a number of areas.
We cherish your participation in our healing mission!
If you are interested in volunteering in any of the following roles or have new ideas for how you can support Sunrise Haven, please contact our Executive Director.
Prayer Support Team
Join us in praying for Sunrise Haven! Every few weeks, we share a spiritual concept that the Sunrise Haven staff and trustees are working to understand and put into practice with increased clarity. Topics, such as home, nutrition, balance, and inspiration, are emailed to team members.
First and Second Readers
Sunrise Haven holds church services on Sundays and Wednesdays (following the same format as branch church services) for our patients, guests and staff. We welcome Christian Scientists to serve as Readers for both services.
Sunrise Haven Representatives
Branch churches appoint a representative from their membership to communicate Sunrise Haven’s purpose, services and activities through brief reports at church business meetings and in newsletters. This work supports the Sunrise Haven Board of Trustees by ensuring that church members:
- Understand the place of Christian Science nursing within the Christian Science movement.
- Are familiar with the services available at Sunrise Haven.
- Are aware of practical ways they can support Sunrise Haven.
For more information, please talk to the clerk of your branch church.
Board of Trustees
The Sunrise Haven Board of Trustees is comprised of Christian Scientists who volunteer their time and bring a wide range of business and professional expertise to the governance of the organization. Board terms are three years with the option to serve for an additional three years.
