Celebrate!

This Sunday, June 4th, we are celebrating all that God has done for us this past year. We will hear stories from people of God’s work in their lives, we have around 20 short videos that folks have sent in and we will have a big picnic after the service to continue the celebration and connect with each other. We are going to do this in one service that begins at 10 am and continue this schedule of one service at 10 am throughout the summer.

We will also hear more about the purchase agreement we signed for land for our future site and the process moving forward. It will be a great morning, I hope you can join us.

This service and picnic is one of the highlights of the year for me. I love to hear faith stories of how God has worked in people’s lives, I love to hang out with people at the picnic and I love to eat! Please join us and celebrate the goodness and grace of God. See you there!

Celebrating Together

Each year, at Westbrook, we take a Sunday service to celebrate what has happened, is happening right now, and will be happening in the near future.  It’s always amazing to hear how people have changed over the course of a year.  All the hardships, trials, loss, birth, joy, and growth…and that’s where I’d like to take us.

As the Worship Director at Westbrook, I’ve always wanted to develop a worship program that had multiple voices from the front.  That doesn’t just mean lead singers, but a diverse group that could share themselves with our community.

A few weeks ago, Johannah Castleman led worship in our services.  On Sundays when she leads, I have an opportunity to work with the Sound Team and help direct the elements in our services.  That Sunday was incredibly important for me because God really opened my eyes to what He’s built our team into.

We have a great group of musicians each week that are not only great at their chosen instruments, but also have humble and amazing hearts for worship and the people of Westbrook.

We have multiple worship leaders that give a different voice to our musical worship than I can.

We have dedicated Sound Techs that are always working hard to make our experience on Sunday mornings the best it can be.

We have a Media Tech that ensures our presentations look great, week in and week out.

We have a few folks helping make announcements way more fun and informative.

God has really grown the teams that I work with this year.  For that I’m incredibly humbled and grateful.

Ok.  Now it’s YOUR turn!  We want as many of you as are able to take a 1-minute or less video of what God has shown you or done in your life this year.  You can do it on your phone…and it obviously won’t take much time.  We’ll be using some of the videos in our June 4th Celebration Service.  Please understand that we won’t be able to use every video that comes in for that service.  We will try to use them all throughout the coming year!
