Our goal is to provide children with the chance to grow close to God every Sunday morning and to provide parents with support so that they can create deep spiritual roots throughout the rest of the week.
Sunday School for infants through 5th grade is available during both our 9:00 and 10:45 am Sunday services.

The longer I am here at Blackhawk working with our kids, the more certain and steadfast I become about the purpose of Children’s Ministries. I often look at all the things thrown at our kids and see what they face every day, and I cannot help but have an intense awareness of the importance of the Church’s need to partner with parents. Our hope is that what kids experience on Sunday mornings is encouraging and useful for parents to build upon during the week.
I was reminded recently of Ecclesiastes 4:12 “Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.” I truly believe that there is great power and strength in partnering together to teach our kids about God and what it means to live rooted in His Truth. Here at Blackhawk, we talk about Gathering, Connecting and Going, and we want to be able to do that with you and your family.
We love your kids and what we get to do on Sunday mornings, and we consider it a privilege to be partnered with you. Please know that our office is always open to you and your family.
Serving with you,
Director of Children’s Ministries
