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 148

Corporate Worship

Song: “All Creatures Of Our God And King ” by David Crowder, William Henry Draper, Brent Milligan, and St. Francis of Assisi

Welcome

Responsive Confession

  • Leader: O Holy God, we confess that we have sinned against you. In the moment of our sinning, we have loved our sin more than You. We have often forgotten the price you paid to set us free from sin and death.
  • People: But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Jesus Christ humbled Himself to the point of death, even death on a cross.
  • Leader: He became sin that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. He became a curse for us in order to redeem us from the curse of the law. Through His death on the cross, He has reconciled us to God and brought us peace.
  • People: Since He has taken our sin upon Himself, we pray that we, through the power of His Spirit, might die to sin and live to righteousness. Amen.

Song: “Come Behold The Wondrous Mystery” by Matt Boswell, Matt Papa, and Michael Bleecker

Song: “Your Great Name” by Michael Neale and Krissy Nordhoff

The Preaching of God’s Word

Scripture Reading: Romans 8:1-25

Sermon: Victorious In Our Hope; Romans 8:23-25

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: “In Christ Alone” by  Keith Getty and Stuart Townend

Song: “Come Behold The Wondrous Mystery” by Matt Boswell, Matt Papa, and Michael Bleecker

Sending

Announcements and Prayer

Song: “The Solid Rock” by Edward Mote and William Batchelder Bradbury

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!
