The Parish Paper

Blackhawk Presbytery has subscribed to The Parish Paper (read 'About Us' on their website), a monthly newsletter of ideas and insights for active congregations co-edited by Rev. Dr. Dana Horrell, and Dr. Cynthia Woolever. Blackhawk Presbytery’s purchase of photocopy rights for The Parish Paper includes: 
  • Permission to provide copies to our staff and the congregations within our presbytery in any of the following ways: E-mail, Postal, newspaper, newsletter, meetings, training events, and our Website. 
  • Permission for each congregation within our presbytery to (a) photocopy or electronically distribute for local use as many copies as it needs, (b) post them on its Website, and (c) quote sentences and paragraphs.
Congregations do NOT have permission (a) to delete the copyright notice on page 2; (b) to re-write, paraphrase, or change the wording of sentences and paragraphs; or (c) to give ANY THIRD PARTY—other than staff and constituents—permission to photocopy or reprint(in any quantity, no matter how small, whether for free distribution or for sale).
Your contributions to the presbytery unified budget make this service possible.
