Spirit and Truth: Frankfort 5/17/15

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: Revelation 5:12

Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing!

Corporate Worship

Song: “O For a Thousand Tongues to Sing” by Carl Gotthelf Glaser, Charles Wesley, and John Martin

Welcome and Prayer

Song: “The Cross of Christ” by Chris Tomlin, Ed Cash, Jason Ingram, and Reuben Morgan

Responsive Scripture Reading: Revelation 5:9-14

  • Leader: And when he had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each holding a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. And they sang a new song, saying,
  • All: “Worthy are you to take the scroll and to open its seals, for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation, and you have made them a kingdom and priests to our God, and they shall reign on the earth.”
  • Leader: Then I looked, and I heard around the throne and the living creatures and the elders the voice of many angels, numbering myriads of myriads and thousands of thousands, saying with a loud voice,
  • All: “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing!”

Song: “Revelation Song” by Jennie Lee Riddle

The Preaching of God’s Word

Sermon: The Passover Lamb; Exodus 11:1-12:32

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

Sending

Announcements and Prayer

Song: “The Cross of Christ” by Chris Tomlin, Ed Cash, Jason Ingram, and Reuben Morgan

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: based on 1 Peter 1:18-19

As you go, remember that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your forefathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot. In this assurance, let’s go and be the church!
