Our Worship and Creative Team works hard to host what we call Team Night every couple months. Team Night is a place for those who serve with our weekend services to come and worship together, spend time in community, and learn from each other. We believe that God has created every person in his image, and as a creative God, so too has he made each of us for creativity.
Together our teams work to create six incredible worship services every weekend where people worship Jesus, connect in community, and are encouraged, inspired and challenged through the teaching of our pastors and leaders.
We met on February 23 for Team Night and it was an awesome night! Our assistant worship leader Dan and his wife Rachel led worship, I shared some of what’s on my heart for our teams and then we broke off into groups to discuss how each of us could grow in the areas we serve with.
A highlight for me was watching one of the members of our Warehouse lighting team, Rudy, train a student from our Uprising community, Isaac, on the lighting system at the Warehouse. This is such a beautiful picture to me of what the Church is built around: people from all walks of life coming together for a common purpose and vision. This picture reminds me of what the prophet Joel foretells:
“Then in those days I will pour My Spirit to all humanity;
your children will boldly and prophetically speak the word of God.
Your elders will dream dreams;
your young warriors will see visions.
No one will be left out. In those days I will offer My spirit
to all servants, both male and female.” – (Joel 2:28-29, VOICE)
God pours out his Spirit on all people, both young and old, and uses them to encourage and strengthen each other. He uses people of all ages to bring his Word to a broken humanity in desperate need of the saving grace that is only found in Jesus.
This is why I love Team Night!
