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 95:1-3
Oh come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation! Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise! For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods.
Song: “Sing to the King” by Billy Foote and Charles Silvester Horne
Welcome and Prayer
Song: “In Tenderness” by Nate Garvey, Adoniram Judson Gordon, and W. Spencer Walton
Scripture Reading: Romans 5:6-9
Song: “Sweetly Broken” by Jeremy Riddle
The Preaching of God’s Word
Sermon: The Wise and Foolish Virgins; Matthew 25:1-13
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’s Your Grace” by Bob Kauflin and Doug Plank
Song: “Come Ye Sinners” by Dan Hamilton, Taylor Johnson, Ryan Owens, and Robbie Seay
Announcements and Prayer
Song: “Made Alive” by Zach Bolen and Brian Eichelberger
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 5:23-24
Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful; he will surely do it.
Go and be the church!
