The Stated Meeting of the Presbytery of Blackhawk was held on April 14 via a Zoom video conference with 96 people in attendance. It was good to see familiar, friendly faces, including some not normally able to attend.
In addition to other business outlined in the meeting minutes, the Presbytery rejoices over the successful examination of Art Blegen on his approval for ordination. Blegen has been called to serve the yoked congregations of Elmira and Kewanee. The Presbytery also commissioned two pastors to serve Blackhawk churches: Mary Lynn Keir is commissioned to Elwood Community and Laurie Walker to Sandwich Federated. Blessings to all!
