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.
1 Corinthians 15:10 But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me was not without effect. No, I worked harder than all of them--yet not I, but the grace of God that was with me.
