INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Conference of The United Methodist Church and Community Health Network of Indianapolis are partnering to promote health ministry and parish nursing across Indiana. As a result of a recent United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) grant, they are pleased to offer a health ministry workshop for the West and Southwest Districts of the conference. This class is open to all parishioners and pastors who are interested in including health ministry as a part of their church’s mission outreach. They hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to send several interested members to the workshop.

The workshop will be held April 15 and 16, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., at Vincennes Community United Methodist Church at 1548 S. Hart Street in Vincennes, Ind. A continental breakfast and lunch will be included. Attendees will need to commit to both days. Cost is $10 per person and needs to be included with the initial registration form. Checks need to be made payable to Community Health Network with a memo Parish Nursing.
