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 95:1-3
Oh come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation! Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise! For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods.
Song: “We Sing” by Joel Sczebel, Pat Sczebel, and Todd Twining
Welcome and Prayer
Song: “Come Behold The Wondrous Mystery” by Matt Boswell, Matt Papa, and Michael Bleecker
Song: “Once For All” by Philip Paul Bliss and Zachary Hicks
The Preaching of God’s Word
Sermon: Exodus 17:1-7
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
Scripture Reading: Romans 5:6-9
For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die— but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God.
Song: “I Stand Amazed” by Charles Hutchison Gabriel
Communication and Celebration
Song: “You Never Let Go” by Matt and Beth Redman
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: Numbers 6:24-26
The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.
Go be the church!
