Spirit and Truth: Frankfort 9/7/14

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: Matthew 11:28-30

“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

Corporate Worship

Song: “In Tenderness” by Nate Garvey, Adoniram Judson Gordon, and W. Spencer Walton

Welcome and Prayer

Responsive Scripture Reading: Psalm 99:1-5

  • Leader: The LORD reigns; let the peoples tremble! He sits enthroned upon the cherubim; let the earth quake!
  • People: The LORD is great in Zion; he is exalted over all the peoples. Let them praise your great and awesome name! Holy is he!
  • Leader: The King in his might loves justice. You have established equity; you have executed justice and righteousness in Jacob.
  • People: Exalt the LORD our God; worship at his footstool! Holy is he!

Song: “Holy Is Our God” by Jon Neufeld and Tim Neufeld

Song: “Stronger” by Ben Fielding and Reuben Morgan

The Preaching of God’s Word

Scripture Reading: Romans 7:1-6

Sermon: Defeated by the Demand of the Law; Romans 7:1-6

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: “We Have Been Healed” by Rich Gunderlock and Bob Kauflin

Song: “Holy Is Our God” by Jon Neufeld and Tim Neufeld

Sending

Announcements and Prayer

Song: “Christ Is Risen” by Mia Fieldes and Matt Maher

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 week, our benediction will be spoken by one of our leaders followed by an exhortation to “go and be the church!”
