UMCOR and the Community Health Network sponsored a two-day workshop at Westfield UMC in Westfield on Sept. 2 and 16. Sandy Reilly, Parish Nurse at Westfield UMC hosted and assisted with the event.

Seven churches from the new Central and North Central Districts of the Indiana Conference completed the workshops. They were: Cumberland UMC, Epworth UMC, First UMC of Sheridan, Grace UMC-Franklin, Mohawk UMC-Greenfield, Honey Creek UMC-Greenwood and the Windfall UMC.

Sherry McIntyre, coordinator of the Health Ministries and Parish Nursing, Community Health Network and parish nurse at Amity UMC; Cheryl Larson, parish nurse facilitator of Community Health Network; and Marge Ohl, parish nurse at Old Bethel UMC instructed the six teams. The workshops were structured to assist the churches in establishing Health Ministry in their own congregations.
