Spirit and Truth: Frankfort 4/20/13

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 57:9-11

I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises to you among the nations. For your steadfast love is great to the heavens, your faithfulness to the clouds. Be exalted, O God, above the heavens! Let your glory be over all the earth!

Corporate Worship

Song: “Alive” by Steve Cook and Vikki Cook

Welcome and Prayer

Song: “Glorious Day (Living He Loved Me)” by Michael Bleecker and Mark Hall

Song: “Love Shines” by Matt Carter, Philip Edsel, and Aaron Ivey

Scripture Reading: Isaiah 53:4-6

Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned—every one—to his own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.

Song: “Man of Sorrows” by Matt Crocker and Brooke Ligertwood

The Preaching of God’s Word

Sermon: One Greater Than Jonah Is Here, Matthew 12:38-42

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: “In Christ Alone” by Keith Getty and Stuart Townend

Song: “Man of Sorrows” by Matt Crocker and Brooke Ligertwood

Sending

Announcements and Prayer

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 1:4-6

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 and be the church!
