Help make Upstream happen.
MUSICIANS: Play an instrument? Sing? Interested in helping us shape worship? Yes, there are auditions, but don’t be too worried; potential and a servant attitude are most important to us, and we work folks in slowly and in rotation according to their gifts and availability. Rehearsals are on Friday evenings.
OTHER CREATIVE TYPES: Do you dance? Decorate? Take pictures? Monkey around with tech stuff? Do drama? Read aloud? There’s a place for you on our creative team!
I’M NOT CREATIVE BUT I’D LOVE TO HELP: You betcha! Introvert, extrovert, cook, roadie, prayer partner, happy behind-the-scenes or leading boldly — there is a place for you. Come help us start something new!
If you're a musician and would like to be a part of the Upstream music team, apply here.
If you're interested in being part of the support staff that helps make Upstream happen, sign up here.
Pastor Michael invited us to sign this petition for Equality for All in Christian Marriage during his July 3rd sermon.
You may sign the online petition below, or print out a copy of the petition here.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7
