About this project

JUST ADDED -
Pledge $60 or more and your reward will include CHORD CHARTS for ALL FOUR Sing The Bible CDs (Vol 1, 2, 3 and Christmas)!  

Pledge $35 or more and your reward will include downloads of any stretch goals we reach (Family Devotions Vol 1 and 2 and the Silly Songs CD)! 

Welcome to the Slugs & Bugs Kickstarter page where we're making TWO CDs - all about Jesus. Here's the link to share with friends...  http://bit.ly/STBVol3

The response to our Sing the Bible CDs has been overwhelming, because...

1. Singing Scripture is probably the best way to get it to stick in your brain. 

2. Our Sing the Bible CDs make memorizing Scripture easy and surprisingly fun. 

3. There are many, many families that want the Bible to be the foundation of their home. 

They (you!) often ask for more songs to help remember God's Word, so with this Kickstarter campaign, we are getting ahead of the question. 

With your help, we will make TWO CDs - Sing the Bible Volume 3 AND Sing the Bible Christmas at the same time. That's right. TWO CDs, all word-for-word Scripture, all about Jesus, BOTH to release later this year!

SING THE BIBLE VOLUME 3

The words of Jesus are the very words of life. Over the past year, I've been studying and writing word-for-word Scripture songs for Sing the Bible Volume 3, focusing on the teachings of Jesus and other passages that address his life and Gospel mission. The Lord has been using these passages to continue to transform me from the inside-out. It is my great joy to offer them to all of you. 

There are far too many to include, of course, but here are a few of the verses that have made the cut so far...

Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday and today and forever. (Hebrews 13:8)

He is the image of the invisible God, the first born of all creation... (Colossians 1:15-19)

I am the vine, you are the branches... (John 15:4-5) Scroll down for a preview video!

The Samaritan woman at the well / Jesus gives living water... (John 4:5-14)

Parables from Matthew 13 (The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, a treasure hidden in a field)

The Beatitudes (Matthew 5:1-12)

I am the way, the truth and the life... (John 14:6)

We are more than conquerors through him who loved us... (Romans 8:38-39)

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you... (John 14:27)

Let the children come to me... (Luke 18:16-17)

With many more to come... 

Sing the Bible Volume 3 will have 14 songs. All EASY TO MEMORIZE word-for word Scripture, and ALL about Jesus. 

-------------

SING THE BIBLE CHRISTMAS

When writing Scripture songs about the birth of Jesus, I was particularly influenced by the jazz piano music from the Charles Schulz Peanuts Christmas special. That music just feels like Christmas to me! So I wrote many of these songs in a similar style. Here's a behind the scenes look at the making of "In the Beginning" (John 1:1-4,14)

The Sing the Bible Christmas CD, will include verses like...

Unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given... (Isaiah 9:6)

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God... (John 1:1-4)

The Word became flesh and dwelt among us... (John 1:14)

When the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his son born of woman... (Galatians 4:4-7)

My soul magnifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices... (Mary's Song from Luke 1)

And many more, plus a few bonus tracks. 

Our plan is for Sing the Bible Christmas to be such a delight musically - and such a refreshment to your spirit through Scripture - that you play it all year long. 

-------------

Watch these videos, (and more coming soon!) and we hope you'll agree that these songs make Scripture memorization easy and fun. Please help us fund this campaign by choosing a reward right now. No matter how much you spend, you'll never regret the investment in getting Scripture into your heart - or the hearts of your children. Plus, you'll be helping us get these verses into thousands of homes all over the world!

Choose a reward, and then please share this campaign! In order to reach our goal, we'll need all the help we can get. If you value Slugs & Bugs and you believe in our mission, please encourage your friends to check out our page. Here's the link to share!  http://bit.ly/STBVol3

STRETCH GOALS!

If we reach $75K, we'll produce a Family Devotion book, (written by Randall with his pastor, Rev. Thomas McKenzie) based on the Scriptures from Sing the Bible Volume 1, so families can think more about the Scriptures they've learned while listening and singing along.

If we reach $85K, we'll produce a second Family Devotion book, (written by Randall Goodgame with his pastor, Rev. Thomas McKenzie) based on the Scriptures from Sing the Bible Volume 2, so families can think more about the verses they've been singing and memorizing in Volume 2.

At $100K, we'll produce TEN NEW ANIMATED VIDEOS for Sing the Bible songs on Volumes 1, 2, 3 and Christmas. 

If we reach $125K, (which would be insane, but amazing) we'll record and produce a brand new Slugs & Bugs Silly Song CD (for 2018) - in the spirit of Under Where? and Slugs & Bugs & Lullabies. I have so many new silly songs! I'd love for you to hear them. Here are a few of the titles so far...
Ping Pong Song
Cell Phone Jones
Catapultanaugahykawallawallarikitikianapoodloodlakkastanvilletown
Pants
Spooky Songs
A Goldfish Named Silver
(And many more!)
