Spirit and Truth: Frankfort 7/13/14
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 66:1-2
Shout for joy to God, all the earth; sing the glory of his name; give to him glorious praise!
Song: “O For A Thousand Tongues To Sing” by Carl Gotthelf Glaser, Charles Wesley, and John Martin
Welcome and Prayer
Song: “And Can It Be” by Charles Wesley and Scott Roley
Song: “What A Savior” by Philip Bliss and Devon Kauflin
The Preaching of God’s Word
Sermon: The Hidden Treasure and the Peal of Great Value; Matthew 13:44-46
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: “How Deep The Father’s Love For Us” by Stuart Townend
Song: “All I Have Is Christ” by Jordan Kauflin
Announcements and Prayer
Song: “Glory To God Forever” by Vicky Beeching and Steve Fee
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.
Doxology, Benediction, and Sending: 1 Timothy 1:17
To the King of the ages, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.
May God’s grace go with us as we go and be the church!
