A hybrid meeting of the Presbytery of Blackhawk was held on November 8, 2022, on Zoom and in person hosted by our friends at Rockford Westminster. The Presbytery enjoyed a full worship service, a stimulating learning opportunity, business and fellowship.

At the final meeting for 2022, a new Moderator, Laurie Walker, was installed by outgoing Moderator Skip Shaffer, who also offered the sermon. Laurie will be assisted by Vice-Moderator Ray Lantz – welcome to both. Other committee moderators were installed and thanks extended to all who have completed their terms of service to the presbytery.  The 2023 presbytery budget was adopted as well as a new Background Check Policy for pastors active in our churches.
