Blackhawk Church seeks to build a loving community that follows Christ in order to reach a community that is lost without Him.
The Worship Arts Community at Blackhawk Church exists to help people from all walks of life encounter God through many different forms of artistic expressions. Blackhawk seeks to create an environment where artists can flourish and in that flourishing point others to God. Blackhawk desires the arts to be at the center of what we do and not just the pretty but irrelevant bits on the fringe.
Blackhawk utilizes its Sunday gatherings as a place for artists to use their gifts. Some of the artistic expressions we use in our Sunday gatherings include video teaching, animated lyrics backgrounds, original photography displayed during worship, live painting and pottery throwing, mini documentaries, short films and visual art displays in gatherings spaces.
In addition to our Sunday gatherings, Blackhawk does a regular arts conference called Pulse. At Pulse artists are equipped and encouraged in their various disciplines. Displayed at the Pulse Conference is a visual art showcases where artists are invited to submit works around a given theme.
