Spotswood Creative

Spotswood Creative is a ministry devoted to glorifying the Lord through creativity and worship.

What is Spotswood Creative?

We believe that worship is the only appropriate response to God’s love and grace for His children. Worship is a holy action, centered in Christ and expressed biblically in a multitude of ways. God cares more about the intention of our worship as opposed to the form of our worship, be it song, dance, visual art, poetry, and beyond. This is Spotswood Creative: a ministry devoted to glorifying the Lord through creativity and worship.

Our Worship Philosophy

At Spotswood, our worship services are to be an expression of His desire for the Church and what He has revealed to us to be the future of believers. We strive for everything we do to meet these standards: that God would be glorified and to edify the body. We pray that our worship will be welcoming to those who do not believe, as well as a testimony of our faith, hope, and love. 

Through Spirit-led services, we hope to have a greater concept of who God is once we are finished worshiping together. Our leaders thoughtfully plan each service according to scripture and hope for life change as people carry out the act of mutual giving and receiving.

podcast

A podcast from Spotswood Creative designed to keep it real and honest about worship practices in the 21st century. We want to help you work through issues like:

  • Choosing worship songs
  • Leading as a volunteer
  • Worship stereotypes
  • Worship conflicts
  • Figuring out if theology is right in the song you just love…or if you should just put it away.
