Spirit and Truth: Frankfort 6/29/14
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: Isaiah 40:28
Have you not known? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable.
Song: “Everlasting God” by Brenton Brown and Ken Riley
Welcome and Prayer
Song: “Made Alive” by Zach Bolen and Brian Eichelberger
Coporate Scripture Reading: Psalm 103
Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, who satisfies you with good so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
Song: “10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord)” by Jonas Myrin and Matt Redman
The Preaching of God’s Word
Scripture Reading: Matthew 13:3-23
Sermon: The Parable of the Soils; Matthew 13:3-23
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
Song: “Come Thou Fount” by John Wyeth and Robert Robinson
Announcements and Prayer
Song: “You Never Let Go” by Beth and Matt Redman
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: Jude 24-26
Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy, to the only God, our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen.
Go and be the church!
