2019 Healthy Congregations Retreat

Registration for the 2020 Healthy Congregations Retreat is now open! Join us at Rock Springs April 23, 24, & 25 for this 19th annual event focused on health and health ministry. This year’s theme is Strengthening Families, Congregations, and Communities.

The 18th annual Healthy Congregations Retreat, with a theme of Building a Healthier Tomorrow Together, brought nearly 110 participants to Rock Springs in late April to explore new ways Great Plains United Methodist churches can facilitate congregation-led community projects aimed at improving health – both directly and by addressing key underlying factors. Dr. Kate Kingery, Deputy Director, Community Transformation, County Health Rankings and Roadmaps, kicked off the event with a keynote titled Health is More Than What Happens in Your Doctor’s Office illustrating how factors in the places we live, learn, work, and pray have a strong influence on health. See the below video for highlights of the 2019 event.
