Night of Worship Outline Based on Isaiah 6:1-9

Sometimes people ask me how we put together an outline for a night of worship. For Celebration Church, we often base it around a scripture or a theme and then pray about what needs to be included. On these nights, the worship leaders and scripture readers have the freedom expand on what is written and said. Here is our concept outline from last night’s service before it was entered into planning center. I welcome your thoughts and comments.

Adoration Section

Scripture ReadingIt was in the year King Uzziah died that I saw the Lord. He was sitting on a lofty throne, and the train of his robe filled the Temple. Attending Him were mighty seraphim, each having six wings. With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they flew. They were calling out to each other, “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of Heaven’s Armies! The whole earth is filled with His glory!” Their voices shook the Temple to its foundations, and the entire building was filled with smoke.  –  Isaiah 6:1-4 NLT

  • Prayer acknowledging the Holiness of God – 2
  • Revelation Song – 5

Confession and Thanksgiving Section

Scripture Reading – Then I said, “It’s all over! I am doomed, for I am a sinful man. I have filthy lips, and I live among a people with filthy lips. Yet I have seen the King, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies.” – Isaiah 6:5 NLT – 1

Scripture Reading – Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a burning coal he had taken from the altar with a pair of tongs. He touched my lips with it and said,”See, this coal has touched your lips. Now your guilt is removed, and your sins are forgiven.” – Isaiah 6:6-7 NLT – 1

Story – In 1860, a lady named Susan Warner became friends with a Christian teacher and learned of a sick boy who was in serious condition. She was so concerned for the boy that she asked her sister Anna to write a song that would bring comfort to him. The song did bring a smile to his face and continues to bring smiles and comfort to children and adults alike today. But more than the comfort and smiles, it reminds us of the assurance that Jesus, God the Son, loves us so much that He gave His life for us to cleanse us of our sin. – 1

  • Jesus Love Me – Hymn acoustic Verse 1 and Chorus 2x (last time a cappella) – 2

Scripture Reading – Then I heard the Lord asking, “Whom should I send as a messenger to this people? Who will go for us?” I said, “Here I am. Send me.” And He said, “Yes, go…”  –  Isaiah 6:8-9a – 1

In committing ourselves to go and follow the Lord, we must be willing to do whatever He wants for us to do. That includes going to the ends of the earth and walking across the street from our house. It includes giving to advance the kingdom of God. And it includes being willing to pray for the nations and our neighbors. Tonight, we’re going to have that type of prayer.

Supplication

Campus Pastor or representative to lead people through the following times of prayer.

  • Praying for the Nations – Ask people to pray for the nations of the world. Direct them to choose a particular nation and pray for God to work there – 3
  • Praying for our Neighbors – Direct people to pray for the needs of those in their oikos. – 4
  • Personal Prayer – Direct people to take time praying for themselves. – 4
  • Pastoral Prayer – Directs people to lift their hands in the air as you pray over their needs. – 2

Prayer Song – Here’s My Heart, Lord – 5 – 

Repeat Scripture Reading – Then I heard the Lord asking, “Whom should I send as a messenger to this people? Who will go for us?” I said, “Here I am. Send me.” And He said, “Yes, go…”  –  Isaiah 6:8-9a – 1

Spoken – In submitting ourselves to go, we must be willing to go wherever He leads us. As we prepare to leave this evening, we must remember that we are His ambassadors sent into a lost and dying world to share the good news that Jesus loves us so very much…
Closing Song – Upbeat – 5 (Suggested Song – Live With Abandon, Newsboys)
