Ramshackle Redemption – LISTEN TODAY

EVENING OF SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 1ST, 2015: Come celebrate the release of Ramshackle Redemption Vol. 1, the new recording from the Next Church band, made possible with the love and support of the community and in celebration of our gracious loving God.

Pay what you can, suggested donation $5 to $10 sliding scale – though some of you will get in for free as a perk for donating through IndieGoGo!

Mobius (feat. Paul Butler) will be playing an opening set, followed by the Next Band playing songs from the record along with Joel Williams – the guy who brought the whole thing together with his recording/engineering skillz. Other specials guests TBA.

The Year in Review

Next Church had a “Year in Review” service last Sunday, Dec 28th, where several folks shared some of the the ways in which they felt God at work in their lives and in the world particularly this year. Some also talked about the impact of community and how our Sunday gatherings have been instrumental in keeping their faith journey alive.  If you would like a copy of the recording, please contact

Maranatha: Come Lord Jesus

In joyful expectation
of his coming we pray to Jesus
Maranatha: Come Lord Jesus

Come to the world as King to the nations
Break into our lives
Where we wage war against the Empires
and Kingdoms of this world
Maranatha: Come Lord Jesus

Come into our suffering as Savior and Comforter
Break into our lives
Where we languish in sickness and sorrow
Maranatha: Come Lord Jesus

Come to our conflict as Prince of Peace
Break into our lives
Where we sorrow with quarrel and strife
Maranatha: Come Lord Jesus

Come to our families, as Heavenly Father
and Holy Brother
Break into our lives
Where we wrestle with relationships, broken and ragged
Maranatha: Come Lord Jesus

We are a people waiting in darkness
Lord, let there be light!
We are a people waiting in the shadow of death
Lord, let there be light!

We are a people waiting,
Lord, let there be light!

Lord, bring in your Kingdom with justice and mercy
Bind up the broken hearted
Restore the sick
And raise up all who have fallen
that the light of God’s coming
may break forth upon us
Maranatha: Come Lord Jesus
Let there be light

ramshackle redemption: a Nexty recording project

We’re working on a new album of the music of Next, and we’d love your help to get it off the ground… We’ve launched an IndieGoGo campaign to raise funds. Check it out for perks and support levels if you’d like to be involved – or just spread the word by sharing the campaign via social media, etc. Pre-purchase the recording now, tickets to the release party, or sign up for high fives for life…

If you want to hear music from the band currently, we’ve got a bunch of rough tracks streaming on SoundCloud – but these new recordings are going to sound way better once they’re done!
