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 98:1-2
Oh sing to the LORD a new song, for he has done marvelous things! His right hand and his holy arm have worked salvation for him. The LORD has made known his salvation; he has revealed his righteousness in the sight of the nations.
Song: “Hosanna (Praise Is Rising)” by Paul Baloche and Brenton Brown
Welcome and Prayer
Song: “Glorious Day (Living He Loved Me)” by Michael Bleecker and Mark Hall
Corporate Scripture Reading: from Psalm 103
Bless the LORD, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name! Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, who satisfies you with good so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
Song: “10,000 Reasons (Bless The Lord)” by Jonas Myrin and Matt Redman
The Preaching of God’s Word
Sermon: The Talents; Matthew 25:14-30
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: “You Have Been Raised” by Mark Altrogge, Ken Boer, and Bob Kauflin
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: 2 Thessalonians 2:16-17
Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God our Father, who loved us and gave us eternal comfort and good hope through grace, comfort your hearts and establish them in every good work and word.
Go and be the church!
