Spirit and Truth: Frankfort 12/22/13

Call to Worship

We begin each week with a scripture reading known as the Call to Worship. This serves as a reminder that all true worship begins with God –He is the one who initiates this divine conversation with His people and we respond.

Scripture Reading: Isaiah 9:2

The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness, on them has light shone.

Corporate Worship

Song: “O Come All Ye Faithful” by C. Frederick Oakeley and John Francis Wade

Song: “Joy To The World (Unspeakable Joy)” by Ed Cash, Matt Gilder, and Chris Tomlin

Welcome

Corporate Confession

God of love, all year long we pursue power and money, yet you come in weakness. All season long we covet great material gifts, when you alone offer what is lasting. Through the work of this Lord Jesus, who comes among us full of grace and truth, forgive us, heal us, correct us. Then open our lips, that we may sing your praise with the angels, and remake our lives, that we may witness to your transforming love. Through Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Assurance: Galatians 4:4-5

But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons.

Song: “He Has Come For Us (God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen)” by Meredith Andrews and Jason Ingram

The Preaching of God’s Word

Sermon: Reactions to King Jesus; Matthew 2:1-12

Worship Through Response

After the sermon, we respond in a number of ways –through singing, prayer, the Offering, and the Lord’s Supper.

The Offering: As followers of Christ and as members of The Point Community Church, we joyfully participate in giving a portion of our income in a regular sacrificial way.

The Lord’s Supper: As a church, sharing the Lord’s Supper is a significant event where we gratefully acknowledge the death of Christ as the fully payment for our sin.

Song: “In Christ Alone” by Keith Getty and Stuart Townend

Song: “Stronger” by Ben Fielding and Reuben Morgan

Sending

Prayer and Announcements

Song: “Go Tell It On The Mountain” by John W. Work Jr.

Every week before we leave, we receive a benediction, or blessing, from God’s Word. Just as the worship gathering begins with God’s call, it ends with God’s promise of his blessing over us as we leave to go and be the church.

Benediction and Sending:

May God, who sent his angels to proclaim the glad news of the Savior’s birth, fill you with joy and make you heralds of the gospel.

Go and be the church.
