August 22, 2023 Special Called Assembly Meeting

The purpose of this meeting was to appoint two Administrative Commissions to act on behalf of Blackhawk Presbytery:

Apple River First. The congregation has voted to dissolve and will hold their final worship service on August 13. The Blackhawk Council recommends that an Administrative Commission be formed to walk with the congregation through the steps of dissolution, to oversee transfer of the property’s title to Blackhawk Presbytery and to sell the property.

Wenona Presbyterian. The congregation is no longer active or in communication with the Presbytery. The building, apparently unused for a few years, has fallen into disrepair. The Blackhawk Council recommends formation of an Administrative Commission to investigate the situation, assume original jurisdiction, dissolve the congregation and oversee disposition of the property.
