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 105:1-3
Oh give thanks to the Lord; call upon his name; make known his deeds among the peoples! 2 Sing to him, sing praises to him; tell of all his wondrous works! 3 Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice!
Song: “Hosanna (Praise Is Rising)” by Paul Baloche and Brenton Brown
Welcome and Prayer
Song: “And Can It Be” by Charles Wesley and Scott Roley
Song: “Great Things” by Steve Cook, Vikki Cook, and Fanny Jane Crosby
The Preaching of God’s Word
Scripture Reading: Romans 8:1-11
Sermon: Warring Minds; Romans 8:5-11
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: “All I Have Is Christ” by Jordan Kauflin
Responsive Reading: Romans 6:1-4
Leader: What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound?
All: By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it? Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.
Song: “Stronger” by Ben Fielding and Reuben Morgan
Announcements and Prayer
Song: “Grace Alone” by Dustin Kensrue
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!
