Spiritual Practices

Welcome to the Blackhawk Next Steps Blog

Welcome to the Blackhawk Church Next Steps Blog.

Our hope is that this space will provide accessible, current and engaging content that will help you grow in your relationship with God.

At Blackhawk, we speak of being Christ followers, which implies movement… movement toward being conformed to Christ – for the sake of others and God’s purposes in the world (Rom. 8:29; Eph. 4:13). As those seeking to follow Christ, we are all called to “next steps” in our faith journey.

We want this blog to be a space where we can address different issues that we face as followers of Christ and do so in a thoughtful and insightful way.  In particular, we want to offer reflections on the places and topics where we daily live out our faith, such as in our relationships, work and spiritual practices.

No matter where we are on our spiritual journey or our walk with Christ, we all have next steps we can take toward greater growth and maturity in our faith.

We hope this blog can be a companion on that journey.
