Song Indexes

Song Indexes

Our congregation uses two song books for our worship services as well as a growing library of songs that are not in either book, or that have complete verses.  We provide the following indexes of each songbook as PDF files that can be viewed and downloaded.  Click to view, or right click to download (warning- these are LARGE files.)

  -   Songs of Faith and Praise (our "Blue Book"), edited by Alton Howard, 15th printing

  -   Hymns For Worship (our "Red Book"), edited by Dane K. Shephard and R.J. Stevens, 15th printing

Song leaders: To have Ross Statham prepare any of these songs, simply text "Blue" or "Red" with your song numbers to him at 770-329-5400, ideally at least 24 hours in advance-- although if you get in a time jam, check his availability for "rush service".  (We aim to please!)  (Ross's backups are Salem and Charles, by the way.)  For songs that are overhead only, simply list the song title.  

If you aren't finding a hymn (or a version of the hymn) you'd like to lead in either the blue or red songbooks, then let Ross know that we would like to look for version(s) from other sources.   Noteworthy examples would be the Full Paperless Hymnal index (5 mb Excel) or Paperless Hymnal List (500k PDF).  We also purchase a "permanent" license (see below) for new songs from RJ Stevens Music or sometimes we create them ourselves.  (see below)

Meanwhile, we already have the following licensed songs already set up as "Electronic Only" slides, typically because they weren't found in either of our hymnals, and as we add more (requests are always appreciated!), we'll add to our library and to this list (this page updated September 2, 2023):

What do we mean by "permanent license"?   Newer songs (generally less than 80 years old or so) as well as their PowerPoint version are copywritten.  To use them means that we pay a one-time fee for an entire library or for individual songs.  (Individual songs are usually only $5-$7.)  Regarding entire libraries, we "own" a license from Taylor Publishing's Songs of Faith And Praise (the blue book we use) and The Paperless Hymnal.   

In the cases of older songs that are out of copyright, Charles Fader has software that allows him to create full PowerPoint versions- free of any licensing fees.  All you need to do is ask!  How do you know if a song is copyrighted?  Look at the bottom of the song in the songbook you're using.  If it's copywritten, we can't create a version, but we can license a version inexpensively.
