2023 Healthy Congregations Retreat

After a three-year gap due to COVID-19, the return of the Healthy Congregations Retreat in 2023 was a success. Nearly 100 participants gathered in Manhattan for two days of healing, learning, sharing, reflection, and fellowship with Healthy Congregations team members and other Great Plains Conference United Methodists passionate about congregational and community health.

The event was held April 25-26, 2023 at the Hilton Garden Inn, Manhattan, Kansas. Presentations and resources from the 2023 event may be accessed below.
