Blackhawk Kids

Welcome to Blackhawk Kids Children's Ministry! We exist to lift high the name of Jesus as we teach our children to love God's Word, to honor and glorify Him, to pray, to join in Christian community and to serve others.
All children from birth through 5th grade are invited to join us at 9:00 and 10:45 a.m. on Sundays for age-appropriate lessons, a time of worship through music, and dynamic group time in our newly renovated nursery, preschool and beautiful new children's wing.
For families who are enrolled in a church-sponsored class on Wednesday evenings, please bring children to KidsConnect from 6:00-7:30 p.m. for fellowship, fun and great lessons from the Bible.
We cannot wait to serve your family! If you would like more information, please contact our Children's Ministry Director, Amber Kern, at [email protected]

Blackhawk Christian School

Preparing Hearts and Minds to Serve Christ.

Blackhawk Christian is a place where we value our parents, students, and faculty. We want our families to know that students as a whole are our priority - educating them for their future, encouraging and leading them in their spiritual life, and genuinely investing in their lives. We are grateful for the opportunity to serve you and your family. 

Blackhawk Christian School is a ministry of Blackhawk Ministries.


Global Missions Team

The purpose of missions at Blackhawk is to promote, encourage and support outreach aimed at bringing others into a personal relationship with Christ. It is the responsibility of every Christian to be involved in the process of missions. It is the responsibility of the local church to:

  • Pray for Christian workers to be raised up. (Matt. 9:36-38)
  • Train Christians to do the work of the ministry. (Eph. 4:11-13)
  • Recognize the leading of the Holy Spirit in the directing of people into the ministry. (Acts 13:1-4)
  • Encourage, financially support, & pray for missionaries and their work. (III John 5-8)
  • Encourage a missional life-style among all believers. (Matt. 28:19-20) Missional living is defined as not living for self but for the present and eternal glory of God.

Family Helping Family

"The way God designed our bodies is a model for understanding our lives together as the church; every part dependent on every other part, the parts we mention and the parts we don't, the parts we see and the parts we don't. If one part hurts, every other part is involved in the hurt, and in the healing. If one part flourishes, every other part enters into the exuberance."
~1 Corinthians 12:26 (The Message)

Sometimes life can be very challenging.

Things just aren't going the way we expected and we find ourselves needing help making ends meet. Blackhawk wants to be a place where you can confidently say, "I need help!"

The Vine exists to help families in meeting their physical needs during a difficult financial time. If you are a member of Blackhawk or a regular attendee of at least 6 months, then you are eligible to apply for assistance. To begin the application process, please call the church office.

Marriage Matters

In a perfect world, boy meets girl, they fall in love, get married, and live happily ever after.

In a not-so-perfect world, marriage is good; but marriage is hard. Happily ever after takes work. Sometimes marriages need a safe place to grow or to heal. Marriage Matters is about helping you create the fulfilling marriage you long for. It provides comfortable opportunities to enrich your relationship in whatever stage it is: seriously dating, engaged, newly married, or celebrating milestones. We welcome marriages in any condition: happily ever after, struggling, broken, or in need of resurrection. Believing that couples respond and grow best in community, we give opportunities for them to affirm and support each other.

Friendship Class

People with Special Needs are welcome at Blackhawk Ministries, and can attend wherever their needs are best met. They may want to attend Sunday School class with others about their age, or the Friendship Class if they find it to be a better “fit.” The Friendship Class is made up of people of various ages who are mentally and/or physically handicapped. It also includes people who become their friends. We enjoy singing, learning God’s truth and talking to Him in prayer. We love to worship and honor God together. Everyone can learn at his or her own level, whatever that may be. We share our concerns and pray for one another . . . and thank God for his answers! We look for ways we can serve others, as well. We also enjoy social activities together. ANYone is welcome. In addition to having accessible facilities, one restroom is a private room allowing another person to assist if needed. It also has an adult size changing table.
