Resources & Tools
Election Day is almost here, so we’re pausing for a short series on Politics and Faith. As Christ followers, we want to care for the issues that Jesus cares about. When we engage in politics, we are called to put His priorities above partisanship. None of this is easy. How do we reflect the love of Jesus to our neighbors, friends, and even our enemies in these trying times? How can we be united in Christ amidst such division? And how will we move forward when the election is over? Join us for Politics and Faith as we discover challenging and encouraging answers to these questions in God’s Word.

ELDERS’ STATEMENT ON POLITICS
In 2008, our Elder Board wrote up a statement on Blackhawk’s official stance around politics. Reading this statement is a helpful place to start.
We acknowledge that this topic is complicated. As we continue to learn and grow as a community, here are some books and articles to help us along the way.
