Countdown to Advent

Advent begins this Sunday, November 29, kicking off a season of anticipation as we prepare to celebrate the birth of our King. Within our Blackhawk community, we hope you’ll engage in this season in new ways – Advent Conspiracy style. This blog is full of resources, from a guide to spending less and a list of creative ways to give more.

And beginning this Sunday, you can visit this blog each day to read reflections on the season written by people in our church. This daily prayer guide will be available as a PDF at the beginning of each week so you can print it out as well.

This Sunday will also kick off our Advent Conspiracy message series on Worshiping Fully, Spending Less, Loving All and Giving More. On Sunday, December 13, we’ll be taking up the Love All offering, sending our combined resources to Romania, Honduras and Kenya to provide clean water and wheelchairs to those who need it most.

We’re excited to celebrate the season together and look forward to seeing what God will do in and through us this Christmas.

Love All

Act Local: Share gifts of time and resources with those in our community. At the Impact Tree in the Atrium, find opportunities available for individuals, families and life groups. All the information you need will be on the cards by the Tree. Take a card – put an ornament on the tree.

Give Global: On Sunday, December 13 during services, we'll take up an Advent Conspiracy offering (a direct result of spending less) to give towards clean water projects and wheelchair needs in Honduras, Kenya and Romania. If you won’t be able to join us at services on that day but still want to participate, just write "Advent" in the memo of your check and drop it in any of the offering boxes.
