Skagit Valley Worship
“Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and His worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth.” John 4:23-24
“Then Jesus came to them and said, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20
“It was He who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.” Ephesians 4:11-13
The Holy Spirit has directed us to provide sound, video and other worship equipment to the body of Christ to reach out to the Skagit Valley community. We “reach and win” new believers where they are and then we “teach and send” them in our local church families.
We have a 300 watt portable sound system and projector available for smaller venues, such as inside a home or garage or for smaller outreaches in the neighborhood, park, convalescent center, etc. We also have Christian videos available at the Harvest Center. If you need music, we can make an effort to contact Christian musicians that can provide the kind of music that is appropriate for your particular venue, such as gospel, contemporary, rap or rock. Or someone to share an evangelistic message of hope from a particular age group or background that might be most appropriate for the outreach.
In July 2008, a group of men gathered in Dale Robertson’s shop in Sedro Woolley, WA to start work on converting a 22’ travel trailer into a portable worship trailer to be used to support local outreach ministry in San Luis, Mexico. The trailer included a drop-down stage, puppet stage and instruments, including keyboard, guitar, bass and drums and video screen. The trailer had a built-in, sound-proofed generator that supplied power for the lights, sound & video projector system. After the trailer was completed, it was used for a local outreach to the Cascade West Apartments in Mt. Vernon before being taken to Mexico in May 2009. In Mexico, the trailer has been used by many different church families in the city, outlying ‘cardboard’ city and to many small villages bringing unity to existing church families, helping plant new church families and realizing hundreds coming to salvation.
In August 2009, work was started to convert a larger 32’ travel trailer to be used as a worship trailer in Skagit Valley. The trailer is also generator-powered with sound and video equipment, lights, instruments, microphones, shofar, tambourines, games, puppet stage and puppets. The trailer also has a supply room that could hold bags of groceries for families, sack lunches for the homeless or bags of treats or cookies for children. The trailer is being made available to church families, para-ministries and Christians that have a call for outreach: local parks, apartment complexes, sports fields, migrant camps, reservations, etc. or to compliment other ministry outreach, such as feeding ministries, Vacation Bible Schools, youth outreaches, etc.
Richard Latimer is leading a team to over-see the scheduling and use of the trailer in the future. Please contact us if you would like to help with the team, be included in outreaches to the community or your church family or para-ministry would like to schedule the trailer. We can also make an effort to help with people for Christian music (gospel, hymns, contemporary, rap or rock), children’s ministry or evangelism. Obviously, the trailer will only be used in a sensitive and legally responsible manner.
Richard, who is gifted in sound and video technology, helps over-see all of the equipment and it’s use. He has put together equipment that can support larger outdoor venues. Obviously, the use and availability of this equipment is integrated with his other responsibilities to ministry, including his family.
