Spirit and Truth: Frankfort 7/20/14
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: from Psalm 103
Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name! The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. He does not deal with us according to our sins, nor repay us according to our iniquities.
Song: “How Great Thou Art” by Stuart Wesley Keene Hine
Welcome and Prayer
Song: “God Undefeatable” by Aaron Ivey and Ross King
Song: “O My Soul Arise” by Eric McAllister and Charles Wesley
The Preaching of God’s Word
Sermon: The Unforgiving Servant; Matthew 18:23-35
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: “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: “I Stand Amazed” by Charles Hutchison Gabriel
Announcements and prayer for our kids and adults going to Crossings Camp
Song: “The Father’s Love” by Joel Sczebel
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 Sunday, our benediction will be given by one of our leaders followed by the exhortation to “go and be the church!”
