Welcome to Hoffmantown’s Legacy Ministry

The Legacy Ministry exists to display God’s Grace and Strength even when we are old and gray.

O God, You have taught me from youth; and to this I declare Your wondrous works. Now also when I am old and gray headed, O God, do not forsake me. Until I declare Your strength to this generation, Your power to everyone who is to come.  Psalm 71: 17-18

February 12, 2018: AfterCare
The AfterCare seminar provided a practical, organized “how to” work through estate matters after the death of a loved one. Items such as where to begin with settling an estate, applying for social security and other benefits, insurance matters, banking issues, and real estate and vehicle titles were covered.

March 19, 2018: Legacy Seminar: Decisions in Care
Topics of discussion included types and levels of care assistance, safety and care plan assessments, eligibility for benefits, coordinating and monitoring care for out-of-state caregivers, and guardianships/conservatorships.

April 9, 2018: Obituary Writing
Aubrey Hovey led an enlightening discussion on a topic less-explored and often-avoided: our obituary. A former journalist, Aubrey showed us how to pen obituaries that will serve as creative, lasting stories of ourselves for our families to enjoy and treasure.
