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
Oh come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!
Song: “Alive” by Steve Cook and Vikki Cook
Welcome and Prayer
Song: “Glorious Day (Living He Loved Me)” by Michael Bleecker and Mark Hall
Scripture Reading: Isaiah 25:9
It will be said on that day, “Behold, this is our God; we have waited for him, that he might save us. This is the Lord; we have waited for him; let us be glad and rejoice in his salvation.”
Song: “Behold Our God” by Stephen Altrogge, Jonathan Baird, Meghan Baird, and Ryan Baird
The Preaching of God’s Word
Scripture Reading: Romans 8:1-11
Sermon: God Sends The Victor; Romans 8:2-4
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: “Rock of Ages (Cleft For Me)” by Thomas Hastings and Augustus Montague Toplady
Corporate Scripture Reading: Romans 7:4
Likewise, my brothers, you also have died to the law through the body of Christ, so that you may belong to another, to him who has been raised from the dead, in order that we may bear fruit for God.
Song: “Once For All” by Philip Paul Bliss and Zachary Hicks
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 Corinthians 13:14
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.
Go and be the church!
