Would need to know more about the project before deciding.
Personally yes I do agree with the thought process of God doesn't need us. We are commanded to go and make disciples of the world but God will always be God. Creator of everything. If He were to take this universe out He would still exist regardless of our non existence
Obeying out of love and discipline doesn't mean He needs us.
Romans 5:8-9 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from Godís wrath through him!
