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 40:28
Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable.
Song: “Everlasting God” by Brenton Brown and Ken Riley
Song: “Rejoice” by Dustin Kensrue and Stuart Townend
Welcome and Prayer
Song: “It Is Well With My Soul” by Horatio G. Spafford and Philip Paul Bliss
Song: “Always” by Jason Ingram and Kristian Stanfill
The Preaching of God’s Word
Scripture Reading: Philippians 4:4-7
Sermon: The Peace of God; Philippians 4:5-7
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: “We Have Been Healed” Music by Rich Gunderlock, words by Rich Gunderlock and Bob Kauflin
Prayer and Announcements
Song: “The New Song We Sing” by Meredith Andrews, Jason Ingram, and Keith Smith
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: Hebrews 13:20-21
Now may the God of peace who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant, equip you with everything good that you may do his will, working in us that which is pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.
Go and be the church.
