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: from Psalm 18:1-3
I love you, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised, and I am saved from my enemies.
Song: “He Is My Fortress”
by Andi Rozier
Responsive Reading: Psalm 121
- Leader: I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come?
- All: My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth. He will not let your foot be moved; he who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, he who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.
- Leader: The Lord is your keeper; the Lord is your shade on your right hand.
- All: The sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all evil; he will keep your life.
- Leader: The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forevermore.

Song: “’Tis So Sweet”
by William James Kirkpatrick and Louisa M. R. Stead
The Preaching of God’s Word
Sermon: Exodus 1-2
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: “Man of Sorrows”
by Matt Crocker and Brooke Ligertwood
Song: “He Who Is Mighty”
by Kate DeGraide and Rebecca Elliott
Announcements and Prayer
Song: “One Thing Remains”
by Christa Black, Brian Johnson, and Jeremy Riddle
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 8:38-39
For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Go and be the church!
