Spirit and Truth: Frankfort 2/9/14
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: Psalm 24:1-4
The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein, for he has founded it upon the seas and established it upon the rivers. Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false and does not swear deceitfully.
Song: “Glory To God Forever” by Vicky Beeching and Steve Fee
Song: “Rejoice” by Dustin Kensrue and Stuart Townend
Welcome and Prayer
Song: “It’s Your Grace” by Bob Kauflin and Doug Plank
Song: “Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone)” by Chris Tomlin, Edwin Othello Excell, John Newton, John P. Rees, Louis Giglio
Scripture Reading: Luke 12:13-21
This week, we kick off a new sermon series on stewardship entitled “God Gives, Give Back.” Each week we’ll be highlighting families at The Point who, by the grace of God and through the power of the Spirit, are excellent examples of what it means to be stewards of the resources God has given.
The Preaching of God’s Word
Sermon: God Gives, Give Back: Stuff; Luke 12:13-21
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: “Stronger” by Ben Fielding and Reuben Morgan
Prayer and Announcements
Song: “Made Alive” by Zach Bolen and Brian Eichelberger
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: Philippians 4:23
Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! “For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been his counselor?” “Or who has given a gift to him that he might be repaid?” For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.
May the grace of God be with you as you go and be the church!
