Songs We Sing (08.20.2017)

When we sing together, we are corporately singing the praises of our God. It’s a participatory activity. This “Songs We Sing” post is a weekly effort to help us better learn the songs we are singing — as well as to gather some small insight into what we are singing. See the Spotify playlist — updated weekly — to hear songs for this week. 



For the services of August 20, 2017, Redemption bands Always At The Ready (in Jasper) and Day 41 (in Loogootee) will lead music and we will sing:



Written by Marc Byrd, Steve Hindalong, 2000. A song that focuses us on the big-ness of God. He is above any other thing our hearts chase. “The universe declares Your majesty.”



Written by David Crowder, Ed Cash. Seth Philpott; 2014. This “stomp” song is an anthem for all of us as “prodigals” stumbling towards grace. The chains of sin can no longer hold us as Jesus has wiped away all our sins and broken the bondage of sin.



Written by David Crowder, Ed Cash, 2013. Taken from Exodus 3, this song uses clever wordplay to show that THE I AM is holding on to us in his sovereignty and we, in turn, are holding onto Him (all we can really do).



Written by Fanny Crosby and W. Howard Doane, 1869. A great hymn of prayer and reflection on the cross. Get a free download of “Near The Cross (Live)” by Redemption band At One.



Written by Gloria Gaither and William J. Gaither, 1971. This song is a great declaration of faith in the face of the trials of the world. We can face uncertain days because Jesus has risen.



Written by Chris Tomlin, Ed Cash, Jesse Reeves, 2004. This is another Chris Tomlin song that we’ve more or less revamped in style to make it our own. Romans 8 says, “if God be for us, who can be against us?” A great encouragement for Christians.

Redemption’s Leadership Institute

Are you interested in going to the next level in our church? Are you interested in taking on more leadership? The Leadership Institute is about learning more about being a disciple, the foundations of a Christian life, and what it means to do ministry through relationships. The goal of this training environment is to establish a new leader in the theological concepts of leadership as well as equip them in the practical disciplines that would be needed in order to lead within Redemption and the church at-large.


You’ll be placed with a mentor and three to five other like-minded people for two semesters (24 weeks). Each week, the material and content covered has been designed to balance theory and practice. You’ll walk away with a clear understanding of your giftedness and how you can best serve the church.



Semester 1: September 24 to December 17 (break on Nov. 26)
Semester 2: January 7 to March 25


Note: Registration is capped at 20 females and 20 males at each campus.



Jasper Campus: 7:45 a.m. 
Loogootee Campus: 8 a.m.
