2018 September Presbytery Meeting

The Presbytery of Blackhawk Assembly met on September 11, 2018 at First Presbyterian Church of Morrison.
 
LEARNING OPPORTUNITY:

Following last year's compelling and successful Soul Shop workshop, Blackhawk leaders offered a condensed version for commissioners at the September Meeting. Soul Shop seeks to equip congregations to respond to suicidal desperation. Presenters Anita Stuart-Steva, Laurie Walker, John Dillon and Matt Robinson (and others similarly trained) are willing to lead this 60-90 minute seminar at your church. Please contact the office for more information.

Never doubt that individuals can make a difference. Suicide reaches into people's lives in multiple ways: through the death or suicide attempt of a loved one, through their own former or current suicidal thinking, or through worries about others going through hard times.
