Spirit and Truth: Frankfort 3/2/14
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: Exodus 20:2
When Moses gathered the people of Israel, God said,
“I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.
As we gather today, let us worship the Lord, who continues to be our God, who has freed us from slavery to sin, and who still brings us out of the places of our bondage!
Song: “We Sing” by Joel Sczebel, Pat Sczebel, and Todd Twining
Welcome and Prayer
Song: “Come Thou Fount” by John Wyeth and Robert Robinson
Song: “O My Soul Arise” by Eric McAllister and Charles Wesley
Scripture Reading: Matthew 11:28-30
Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
Song: “All The Poor and Powerless” by Leslie Jordan and David Leonard
The Preaching of God’s Word
Sermon: God Gives, Give Back: Everything; Romans 12:1-2
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: “We Have Been Healed” Music by Rich Gunderlock, words by Rich Gunderlock and Bob Kauflin
Prayer and Announcements
Song: “Absent From Flesh” by Jamie Barnes
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
This week, our benediction will be given by one of our pastors, followed by an encouragement to “Go be the church!”
