2024 Healthy Congregations Retreat / Intersections Conference

Thank you to all who joined us in Salina – see below for resources. We hope to see you in 2025.

Thursday, April 18, 2024

Designed for Great Plains United Methodists, the 2024 Healthy Congregations Retreat featured an interactive workshop Leaving a Legacy of Abundance in a Culture of Scarcity facilitated by Adam Barlow-Thompson, Executive Director & Co-Founder of The Neighboring Movement. In the workshop, participants practiced moving from scarcity to abundance. The activities and tools in the workshop are available for use in local settings and help churches see the power of becoming community connectors. The workshop focused as well on reducing the sense of isolation and loneliness that is created when doing ministry in a culture of scarcity.

Designed for participants from faith communities and the fields of public health, health care, and non-profits, along with community members, Intersections of Faith & Health explores current and emerging health issues with an emphasis on how stakeholders can work together and leverage their unique strengths to improve community health.
Participants heard from health experts from across the state on topics including food security, maternal and child health, Medicaid expansion, voting and civic engagement, child care, and more – then explored further and connected with resources through facilitated small-group conversations.
