2018 September Presbytery Meeting

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

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.
