Songs We Sing (11.12.2017)

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 below — updated weekly — to hear songs for this week. 

 

 

For the services of November 12, 2017, Redemption bands We Come Alive (in Jasper) and Day 41 (in Loogootee) will lead music and we will sing:

 

GRACE GREATER THAN OUR SIN

Words written by Julia H. Johnston (1911) and music by Daniel B. Towner (1910). Ephesians 2:8 says, “for it is by grace you have been saved … .” This song is a great reflection on God’s grace. “Dark is the stain that we cannot hide. What can avail to wash it away? Look! There is flowing a crimson tide. Whiter than snow you may be today.”

 

THERE IS A FOUNTAIN

Written by E.O. Excell, L. Mason, Wm. Cowper. Arrangement by Citizens & Saints. William Cowper wrote this hymn after a major bout with depression. Though he continued to struggle, he found hope in the words of this song and in the hope of Jesus. Find out more about this song’s origins.

 

JESUS PAID IT ALL

Written by Elvina M. Hall, 1865. We can do nothing to earn our favor with God. Only Christ’s blood makes us holy. Not our good works, not any action we take — ONLY Christ’s blood.

 

COME THOU FOUNT OF EVERY BLESSING

Written by Robert Robinson, 1758. This is a favorite hymn at Redemption. It’s such a song of yearning, pleading with God to keep us in Him. “Jesus sought me when a stranger/Wandering from the fold of God/He to rescue me from danger/Interposed His precious blood.” Buy “Come Thou Fount Of Every Blessing” by Narrow Path.

 

YOUR GRACE IS ENOUGH

Written by Matt Maher, 2003. Chris Tomlin first popularized this song but Matt Maher is the original songwriter. This is taken from 2 Corinthians 12.

2017 Congregational Meeting

As required in our by-laws, we will hold our annual Congregational Meeting on Monday evening, Dec. 18 from 6 to 7 p.m. in Worship Center A on the Jasper Campus.

 

Partners of Redemption from both campuses are encouraged to attend.

 

We will review 2018’s budget, review some highlights of 2017, update everyone on where we are and where we hope to go — spiritually and financially — in 2018.

 

We typically hold these on Sunday mornings for about five to 10 minutes, but decided to expand it this year to allow more time for discussion, including potential questions from Redemption partners.

 

Songs We Sing (11.05.2017)

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 below — updated weekly — to hear songs for this week. 

 

 

For the services of November 5, 2017, Redemption bands At One (in Jasper) and Into The Fire (in Loogootee) will lead music and we will sing:

 

BEAUTIFUL ONE

Written by Tim Hughes; 2002. This is ultimately a song about how nothing on earth can compare to Jesus.

 

MADE ALIVE

Written by Zach Bolen and Brian Eichelberger, 2012. This song is inspired by Colossians 2 and Ephesians 2 and focuses on how Jesus’ grace has bought us back and made us right before God.

 

NEAR THE CROSS

Written by Fanny Crosby and W. Howard Doane, 1869. A great hymn of prayer and reflection on the cross.

 

COME AS YOU ARE

Written by Ben Glover, David Crowder, Matt Maher, 2014. Isaiah 55:1 says, “Come, everyone who thirsts, come to the waters.” This song, along with songs like the old hymn “Just As I Am” reflect that thought. We can come to Jesus and find forgiveness just as we are, not having to clean ourselves up first. Thank God, he finds us in our lowly estate and rescues us from darkness.

 

FOREVER

Written by Chris Tomlin, 2001. We need songs of reminder that God is with us, that He will never leave us, never forsake us. Taken from Psalm 136.

Love & Respect Marriage Class

Love and respect. These two words surface in social research and the bible (Ephesians 5:33) as the two key ingredients for a successful marriage. What is love and respect? We believe, in most cases, love best motivates a woman and respect most powerfully motivates a man.

 

Love & Respect is a 14-week class beginning on January 7 on the Loogootee Campus and meeting at 9:15 a.m. each Sunday. A $10 (per couple) donation is recommended for materials (pay at the class), however, don’t let cost stop you from registering.
