This is Pastor Weaz and I want to quickly celebrate what God is doing in our church and throughout our city with our Blackhawk Young Adults ministry.
When I came To Blackhawk my main aim was to bring some shifts and changes to how we minister to 6-12th grade students. Over my first two years I built teams made up of many incredible people and together we implemented various strategic changes.
The result was that God brought a multitude of 6th through 12th grade students. On average we would see 125 young people gathering together each Wednesday to eat, worship, hear Bible based teaching and find connection in our small groups that were led by nearly 25 trusted Youth Coaches.
Now that our ministry has expanded with DS3 (5th-8th) and The Movement (9-12th), my role has also expanded and I have a bit more time and energy to invest towards starting a ministry for Young Adults. Blackhawk Young Adults includes anyone who is post HS through their 20’s.
In November of 2020 I launched a new Sunday morning gathering from 9:30-10:30 am. We gather upstairs each week and we have coffee and a time of connection and fellowship followed by a time of diving into God’s Word together! We are blessed to have Alicia Richard and Micah Quick joining me in leading this gathering. They are fantastic and the three of us are excited to invest further into our young adults. We have coffee, lunches and even play weekly basketball with those who are interested. If you would be interested in serving with us on our team and helping us to provide leadership in this ministry area, please let me know.
In the first 3 months we have seen over 30 different young adults come and plug in. This is open to anyone and we would love to see you join us and invite your friends as well. We have a seat for you and look forward to doing life together as we move into 2021 and beyond.
See you Sunday!
