Local Partnerships and Ministries
At Blackhawk Church, we have initiatives and events that are catalytic, raise awareness, equip and benefit both the Blackhawk community and our partnerships.
- Summer Share: Food and School Supply Drive
Brader Way List | Downtown List | Fitchburg List
Every day thousands of our Dane County neighbors have to make tough choices between buying food and school supplies and covering the costs of rent, childcare and medical expenses. Blackhawk partners with community organizations who provide resources to families that have to make those difficult decisions and our Summer Share: Food and School Supply Drive is a practical way that we can help. Our goal is to see families strengthened, parents encouraged and children equipped to reach their full potential.
- Addressing Opportunity Gaps Locally
Blackhawk is currently focusing on opportunity gaps in Madison and Dane County by moving past awareness towards personal engagement and action. We are working with organizations that have opened their doors to us so that we can personally engage by building relationships and giving our time and talents.
- Advent Conspiracy
Blackhawk Church takes part in a nationwide movement called Advent Conspiracy. We move away from the consumerism of Christmas and back to the Christ of Christmas by giving generously toward needs and opportunities in the world and in Madison through our Advent Conspiracy offering. Each year we have a specific theme for Advent Conspiracy which gives us the chance to bring awareness and education to our congregation, as well as call the church to engage in compelling efforts through partnering with game-changing organizations doing amazing work.
- Baby Bottle Drive
Every Mother’s Day, Blackhawk Church participates in the Baby Bottle drive to support our partner Care Net Pregnancy Center and our in-house Mother and Child Resource Ministry. Both of these ministries provide help and hope to women, men and families facing unplanned pregnancies through services, support and everyday items babies need. Attenders pick up a baby bottle and return it filled with cash, coins or checks.
- LOVE Madison
Every spring we choose a Sunday to cancel services at all of our venues and go outside the walls of our buildings to serve together all over the greater Madison area. LOVE Madison is a practical way to live out our mission of building a community to reach a community. We want to connect with our Madison neighbors and actively show people the love of Jesus through our actions! Throughout the year, people from Blackhawk Church are serving all over our community. But on this day, we want to serve our communities on a grander scale by engaging the entire Blackhawk community in projects all over the Madison area.
