General Assembly
Kudos to our team of GA Commissioners who have completed considerable advance planning, studying and praying and began their first 4.5 HOUR Zoom session Friday evening. This was followed by another, previously unscheduled, Saturday evening plenary session to elect co-moderators.

We applaud your commitment to this essential governing body of the PC(USA) and to everyone's intention to accomplish the business "decently and in order". And we recognize and give thanks for the hard work of many, many people in the Office of the General Assembly and Committee on the Office of the General Assembly (COGA) who planned this all-online event. Blackhawk's Rev. Stephanie Anthony serves as Vice-Moderator for COGA - thanks!

General Assembly will continue all day Friday and Saturday (June 26-27). This is a unique opportunity for all pastors and church members to watch what happens at assembly as the proceedings are televised on the GA website and the Facebook page and you do not need to register.

Should you have any questions about the General Assembly and how it operates, please contact our Stated Clerk, Eric Heinekamp.

We pray for enthusiasm, energy, endurance and the presence of the Spirit.

Our Commissioners:
Ruling Elder Phil Rarick
Ruling Elder and Commissioned Pastor Laurie Walker
Reverend Anita Stuart-Steva
Reverend Dave Terrinoni
Elona Street-Stewart, executive of the  Synod of Lakes and Prairies , and the Rev. Gregory Bentley, pastor of  Fellowship Presbyterian Church  in Huntsville, Alabama, were overwhelmingly elected to be co-moderators of the 224th General Assembly Saturday.
