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: Isaiah 9:2
The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness, on them has light shone.
Song: “O Come All Ye Faithful ” by C. Frederick Oakeley and John Francis Wade
Scriptural Prayer: adapted from Ephesians 1:3-14
Song: “Alive” by Steve Cook and Vikki Cook
Song: “Grace Alone” by Dustin Kensrue
The Preaching of God’s Word
Sermon: Victorious By His Choosing; Romans 8:28-30
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: “It’s Your Grace” by Bob Kauflin and Doug Plank
Song: “All I Have Is Christ” by Jordan Kauflin
Announcements and Prayer
Song: “Joy To The World (Unspeakable Joy)” by Ed Cash, Matt Gilder, and Chris Tomlin
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 13:11-12
Besides this you know the time, that the hour has come for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed. 12 The night is far gone; the day is at hand. So then let us cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light.
May God’s grace be with us all as we await, with eager expectation, the coming of Christ. Now go and be the church!
