What an awesome experience to be part of a team. I’m so happy we’re about team ministry at Highland! I’m a part of some incredible teams here. Our pastoral team, the worship planning team, the children’s leadership team. I have skills and knowledge to offer to each group, but I certainly do not know how to do it on my own. But I’m not supposed to. That’s part of the beauty of the way God’s created us! We’re not supposed to be able to do it on our own. We can’t do it without God and He’s made it so that we can’t do it without one another either.

God’s placed you on different teams so that you don’t have to do it alone. The team of your marriage, your family, your ministry, Highland Church, the Kingdom of God! All of these are great opportunities for you to experience the great joy of being part of a team. Being part of something that is greater than yourself. Being part of accomplishing something far greater, above and beyond what you could possibly do on your own. What an astounding God we serve that He would create us each with gifts to be used in tandem with the gifts of teammates! Synergy is a beautiful truth. The results of our efforts are multiplied when we work together as God has intended. So see your abilities, what you can offer to the team, but don’t let your vision stop there! See what your team can accomplish as you place your efforts, skills and knowledge together!

God, help us all to recognize our significance in our teams and to recognize the beauty of teamwork and synergy! Thank you Jesus!

You don’t have to do it on your own. You aren’t supposed to. You're not expected to. Enjoy the beauty and amazing experience of teamwork.
