CLASS ACTIVATIONS

EXPRESSIVE SIGN WITH FLAGS

For the Expressive Sign/Flag Vocabulary part of the workshop, I'll be teaching some movements to words found in common worship songs. After you learn them, we’ll be doing an ‘activation’ (learn by doing an activity) to sort of put it together creatively. 
Here is a list of pairs of words (reading from left to right). You’ll be moving with the people that have the word across from your word. 
Example:  Desire will move with Sing; Worthy will move with Praise and so on… I’ll explain the activation after the movements will have been shown.

Lamb - Blood

Love - Name

Depending on time and number of people, we may go into Zoom Breakout rooms. Each room or group will be assigned a pair of words like this:
GROUP/ROOM 1 - Lamb - Blood
GROUP/ROOM  2 - Love - Name

You'll have about 10 minutes to work together with these particular words. I will give specific instructions during the conference. It will be a fun way to creatively learn some expressive movements! If we have more time, we'll do more words.

ARTISTIC MINISTRY

We will do this immediately following Pastor Wil's message. You may begin praying about it and gathering supplies. 

“But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit” (2 Cor. 3:18). 

Under the Old Covenant, when Moses asked to see the glory of God, the Lord hid him in the cleft of the rock. 

But under the new covenant we have an unobstructed view of the glory of God revealed in holy Scripture in the person of Jesus Christ. Now we are invited to enter the presence of God’s glory in worship and in prayer. As we focus our lives on the glory of God revealed in Christ, we are moved from one level of glory to the next by the Holy Spirit, increasingly transformed into the image of the very glory we behold, increasingly devoted to the glory of God, increasingly manifesting the glory of God.

ACTIVATION

Supplies:  Piece of cloth to drape over head; hand held mirror; Bible; pen and several little pieces of paper or like post its; a make shift alabaster box; something to represent the cross or the feet of Jesus (like red veil, flag, billow or what ever you have handy)

Song 1:  In You - Mirror - Be in the cleft of the rock with a hand held mirror. Let the first song be a prayer. Look at yourself in the eyes and see who you are.
          Write down a few things you do not like about yourself (separate small pieces of paper).

Song 2:  Mirror - God’s response is the second song - remove the cloth and put down the mirror - Pick up the bible - look at it like a mirror - listen to what God says to you about who you are to Him. 
           Take the pieces of paper, on the back of each one, write a promise of how God sees you. Then place them in your “Alabaster Jar.” Worship the Lord.

We are reminded of the woman with the flask of perfume — she had to break the flask before she could anoint Jesus. But in the breaking, there was a release of the fragrance.

But sometimes the fragrance of Christ is released through suffering for the faith. Jesus reminded the church at Smyrna that He understood the crushing weight of persecution, the slander that was hurled against them and the imprisonment some had experienced. 

Song 3: Alabaster - Write down pieces of who you are where you have been (or are) broken, hurt, persecuted, crushed, slandered, mis understood, lonely, financially challenged, etc.
Also write those things that are precious to you or are meaningful (children, family, your dance, gifting, etc.)
             Place each of those pieces of paper in the Alabaster Jar.

But it was that suffering that was releasing the fragrant glory of Christ and so He then exhorted them, “Be faithful unto death and I will give you the crown of life” (Rev. 2:10). If they would continue to glorify the Lord with their witness even in suffering, He would glorify them with His reward. 

Song 4: Alabaster Box - During this song, release the fragrance of Christ through your broken jar. Begin to take each piece of paper (all your pain, trauma, brokenness, lack) and spill /pour them (one by one) at the feet of Jesus as your fragrant offering of worship.
          Once your jar is empty, then pour out all your worship as you dance freely!
