Spirit and Truth: Frankfort 8/3/14
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: Revelation 15:3-4
“Great and amazing are your deeds, O Lord God the Almighty! Just and true are your ways, O King of the nations! Who will not fear, O Lord, and glorify your name? For you alone are holy. All nations will come and worship you, for your righteous acts have been revealed.”
Song: “Glory to God Forever” by Vicky Beeching and Steve Fee
Welcome and Prayer
Scripture Reading: Ephesians 2:1-7
Song: “In Tenderness” by Nate Garvey, Adoniram Judson Gordon, and W. Spencer Walton
Song: “Lead Me To The Cross” by Brooke Fraser
The Preaching of God’s Word
Sermon: The Rich Man and Lazarus; Luke 16:19-31
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: “Jesus Paid It All” by Alex Nifong and Elvina M. Hall
Song: “Just As I Am” by William Batchelder Bradbury, Daniel Doss, and Charlotte Elliott
Announcements and Prayer
Song: “Forever Reign” by Jason Ingram and Reuben Morgan
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: Revelation 7:12
“Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God forever and ever! Amen.”
Go and be the church!
