Offering Hope, Support, and Spiritual Guidance
The Care Team ministers to the spiritual, emotional, mental, relational, and physical needs of the Blackhawk community by offering hope, support, and spiritual guidance. We strive to do this through Christ’s love and sensitivity as we come alongside you during times of struggle, pain, fear, and vulnerability. Our ministry team is made up of well-trained staff and volunteers who provide confidential care, support, and direction.
Let Us Pray for You
Blackhawk has a team that receives a prayer sheet weekly via email to pray over requests. Each request stays on the prayer sheet for a month and is prayed over during that time. All requests are listed under first name only, unless it’s specified to be kept anonymous. Call 608.828.4200 or submit a prayer request online.
Care Support Team
The Care Support Team provides care to individuals and families who are experiencing difficult circumstances by helping with practical needs and offering companionship. Those seeking Care Support Team assistance are often experiencing a change in health or life events that benefit from expanded community connections. The Care Support Team may offer support in a variety of ways including visitation, household chores, meals, errands, card writing, and more.
Are you going through a difficult time and need someone to care, listen and share God’s love with you, one-on-one and confidentially? Are you hurting due to loss of a spouse, retirement, loneliness, unemployment, despair, childbirth, hospitalization, grief, separation and divorce, terminal illness, being shut in, faith issues or other problems? If so, a One-to-One Caregiver could help.
One-to-One Caregivers are trained, caring volunteers who have responded to Christ’s call to “carry each others’ burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.” One-to-One Care provides you with someone who cares, supports, listens, shares, and prays.
A One-to-One Caregiver is:
- A Christ-follower who walks beside a hurting person
- A caring Christian who listens and supports
- A volunteer who has received 50 hours of training in how to provide compassionate care
A One-to-One Caregiver is not:
- A counselor, therapist, or mental health professional
- A person who will solve all your problems
Request One-to-One Care for Someone Else
Before reaching out for another person, go to the person in need and let them know about One-to-One Care. Pray with them about it.
