Spirit and Truth: Frankfort 3/9/14
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 117
Praise the Lord, all nations! Extol him, all peoples! For great is his steadfast love toward us, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever. Praise the Lord!
Song: “How Great Thou Art” by Stuart Wesley Keene Hine
Welcome and Prayer
Song: “It’s Your Grace” by Bob Kauflin and Doug Plank
Song: “Stronger” by Bob Kauflin and Doug Plank
Scripture Reading: The Book of Jonah
As we kick off our new sermon series on the book of Jonah, we’ll be reading through the entire book this week during the gathering
The Preaching of God’s Word
Sermon: The God Who Gives His Word; Jonah 1:1-2
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: “How Deep The Father’s Love For Us” by Stuart Townend
Song: “Glorious Day (Living He Loved Me)” by Michael Bleecker and Mark Hall
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: Romans 16:20
The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
Go be the church!
