Spirit and Truth: Frankfort 3/16/14
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 66:1-2
Shout for joy to God, all the earth; sing the glory of his name; give to him glorious praise!
Song: “Rejoice” by Dustin Kensrue and Stuart Townend
Welcome and Prayer
Song: “Lord of All” by Kristian Stanfill
Scripture Reading from Job and Isaiah
Though he slay me, I will hope in him; (Job 13:15a)
Behold, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have tried you in the furnace of affliction. (Isaiah 48:10)
Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. (Isaiah 53:4)
Yet it was the will of the Lord to crush him; he has put him to grief; (Isaiah 53:10a)
Song: “Though You Slay Me” by Beth Barnard, Shane Barnard, Lauren Chandler, Josh Moore, and Brian Woods
Song: “Your Great Name” by Michael Neale and Krissy Nordhoff
The Preaching of God’s Word
Scripture Reading: Jonah 1:3-11
Sermon: The God Who Brings Us To Our Knees; Jonah 1:3-11
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: “Completely Done” by Jonathan Baird, Ryan Baird, Rich Gunderlock
Announcements and Closing Prayer
Song: “Lord, I Need You” by Daniel Carson, Matt Maher, Christy Nockels, Jesse Reeves, and Kristian Stanfill
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 be the church!
