Spirit and Truth: Frankfort 11/2/14
Call to Worship
We begin each week with a 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.
Call to Worship: Psalm 401-3
I waited patiently for the Lord; he inclined to me and heard my cry. 2 He drew me up from the pit of destruction, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure. 3 He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the Lord.
Song: “We Sing” by Joel Sczebel, Pat Sczebel, and Todd Twining
Baptism is an outward expression of an inward change. It’s a picture of death to sin and new life in Christ. It’s a joyous occasion in the life of the church!
Song: “Love Shines” by Matt Carter, Philip Edsel, and Aaron Ivey
The Preaching of God’s Word
Scripture Reading: Romans 8:1-17
Sermon: Killing Sin –Part 2; Romans 8:9-17
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: “I Stand Amazed” by Charles Hutchison Gabriel
Song: “God Undefeatable” by Aaron Ivey and Ross King
Announcements and Prayer
Song: “The Father’s Love” by Joel Sczebel
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 8:14-15
For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. 15 For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!”
Go and be the church!
