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: “Man of Sorrows” by Matt Crocker and Brooke Ligertwood
Scripture Reading: John 3:16-17
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.
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
Sermon: Jesus: A Greater Prophet, Hebrews 1:1-4, 3:1-19
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: “I Stand Amazed” by Charles Hutchison Gabriel
Announcements and Prayer
Song: “The Solid Rock” by Edward Mote and William Batchelder Bradbury
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 and be the church!
