Spirit and Truth: Frankfort 7/6/14
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 95:6-7a
Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker! For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand.
Song: “Grace Alone” by Dustin Kensrue
Welcome and Prayer
Song: “Love Shines” by Matt Carter, Philip Edsel, and Aaron Ivey
Song: “Revelation Song” by Jennie Lee Riddle
The Preaching of God’s Word
Scripture Reading: Luke 18:9-14
Sermon: The Pharisee and the Tax Collector; Luke 18:9-14
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: “We Have Been Healed” by Rich Gunderlock and Bob Kauflin
Song: “Your Great Name” by Michael Neale and Krissy Nordhoff
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: 1 Thessalonians 3:12-13
May the Lord make you increase and abound in love for one another and for all, as we do for you, so that he may establish your hearts blameless in holiness before our God and Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus with all his saints.
Go and be the church!
