We had two incredible services at Dublin Vineyard last Sunday, Nov. 11th.
On Saturday afternoon, part of the worship team spent a few hours setting up the stage and all its connections (lights, sound, instruments, media, ect.) at our meeting place for the next day, since we are a portable church.
I believe that the sacrificial time that we put into this is also a form of worship and and it not only strengthens our soul but it gives and creates a mindset that is ready to praise God.
The preparation paid off big time. Since the big part of the set up was already done on Saturday afternoon we were able to use Sunday morning to get ourselves ready without any distractions and had a great time of prayer for each other before the service started.
Usually, there is a lot to do on Sunday mornings with testing and EQ-ing instruments and vocals as well as resolving issues (every week there are some), but this week, we were able to start the worship service well prepared, confident and with a clear mind.
Together we proclaimed the Word of God and how he is with us in the midst of our unknown and our unbelief! God‘s promises are true today! This time together of worship and listening from the Word, gives us strength to face our week holding God’s hand.
„He will bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor.“Isaiah 61:3
