Redemption Music in 2017: By The Numbers
One of our core values at Redemption is worship (the others being discipleship and outreach). One way we worship is through singing, through music, each and every week. Christians sing because there are few other better ways to express the joy we have in being rescued from death by Jesus Christ.
When it comes to music, we want to be a church that is diverse in style and meaningful in content. We want to give people songs that remind them of Who God is and what He has done for us. Songs that we can carry into our dying day, giving us assurance and hope that God is a god who keeps His promises and is faithful.
With that, here’s a look back at 2017 in Redemption Music — by the numbers.
