Spirit and Truth: Frankfort 6/1/14

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 107:1-3

Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever! Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom he has redeemed from trouble and gathered in from the lands, from the east and from the west, from the north and from the south.

Corporate Worship

Song: “Rise” by Matt Bronleewe and Kari Jobe

Welcome

Responsive Prayer of Confession

Leader:
O Holy God, we confess that we have sinned against you. In the moment of our sinning, we have loved our sin more than You. We have often forgotten the price you paid to set us free from sin and death.

People:
But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Jesus Christ humbled Himself to the point of death, even death on a cross.

Leader:
He became sin that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. He became a curse for us in order to redeem us from the curse of the law.  Through His death on the cross, He has reconciled us to God and brought us peace.

People:
Since He has taken our sin upon Himself, we pray that we, through the power of His Spirit, might die to sin and live to righteousness. Amen.

Song: “Grace Alone” by Dustin Kensrue

Song: “Jesus Paid It All” by Alex Nifong, Elvina M. Hall, and Kristian Stanfill

The Preaching of God’s Word

Sermon: The Moneylender and the Two Debtors; Luke 7:41-43

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: “The Power of the Cross” by Keith Getty and Stuart Townend

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

Sending

Announcements and 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

This week, the benediction will be given by one of our leaders followed by the exhortation to “Go and be the church!”
