Scripture Memorization:

2020 Redeemer Challenge

For 2020, Redeemer is challenging our congregation to grow in the discipline of Scripture memorization! To that end, we will be selecting Bible verses that we can all memorize together as a body.  We will add each month's verses to the bottom of this page as we make our way through the challenge, so make sure you bookmark it and continue to come back!

Additionally, Pastor Marc has a suggested method for memorizing Scripture that is tried, true and (best of all!) pretty simple! You can download the instructions and checklists for this method here.

From Pastor Marc:  "I encourage you to join us in committing God’s word to memory using this simple and effective system. Many blessings!"

“Blessed is the man …whose delight is in the law of the Lord,

and on his law he meditates day and night….” (Ps. 1:1a,2)

Suggested Monthly Bible Verses


Blessed is the one
    who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
    or sit in the company of mockers,
but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
    and who meditates on his law day and night.

- Psalm 1:1-2

That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
    which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
    whatever they do prospers.

- Psalm 1:3

My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry,

- James 1:19

So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’  For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.  But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

- Matthew 6:31-33
