Spirit and Truth: Frankfort 2/23/14
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 100:1-4
Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth! Serve the Lord with gladness! Come into his presence with singing! Know that the Lord, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name!
Song: “Lift Up The Name” by Josh Caterer
Welcome and Prayer
Song: “Great Things” by Steve Cook, Vikki Cook, and Fanny Jane Crosby
Song: “Be Thou My Vision” by Mary Elizabeth Byrne and Eleanor Henrietta Hull
The Preaching of God’s Word
Scripture Reading: 1 Peter 4:7-11
Sermon: God Gives, Give Back: Gifts; 1 Peter 4:7-11
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 believers gratefully acknowledge the death of Christ as the fully payment for our sin.
Song: “It’s Your Grace” by Bob Kauflin and Doug Plank
Song: “I Stand Amazed” by Charles Hutchison Gabriel
Prayer and Announcements
Song: “Christ Is Risen” by Mia Fieldes and Matt Maher
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: Revelation 1:4b-6
Grace to you and peace from him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven spirits who are before his throne, and from Jesus Christ the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of kings on earth. To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood and made us a kingdom, priests to his God and Father, to him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.
Go be the church!
