Spirit and Truth: Frankfort 8/10/14
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 24:9-10
Lift up your heads, O gates! And lift them up, O ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory!
Song: “Rejoice” by Dustin Kensrue and Stuart Townend
Welcome and Prayer
Song: “Lord of All” by Kristian Stanfill
Scripture Reading: Revelation 7:9-10
After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!”
Song: “Hosanna” by Brooke Fraser
The Preaching of God’s Word
Sermon: The Mustard Seed and the Leaven; Luke 13:18-21
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: “It Is Well” by Horatio G. Spafford, Philip Paul Bliss
Song: “God You Are My God” by Paul Mabury and Rory Noland
Announcements and Prayer
Song: “You Never Let Go” by Matt and Beth 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: Romans 15:13
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
Go and be the church!
