Hear Our Passion

Christ Presbyterian Church, founded in 1973, is open to families throughout the Greater Richmond area to collectively grow their knowledge and love for Jesus Christ and God’s Word. We encourage members to also discover the true answer to questions of life and eternity.

Other services can be boring and often irrelevant. At Christ Presbyterian Church, we believe that worship should be enjoyed and meaningful. Our Presbyterian congregation is set forth in the Westminster Confession of Faith and Larger and Shorter Catechisms because these statements truly embrace our beliefs. Below, you’ll find the music for each date of worship and sermons uploaded for your listening convenience.

Worship

Worship Theme:

“The God Worthy of Our Love”

Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent His only Son into the world, so that we might live through Him.

Psalm 73:25,26

Music to Prepare Our Hearts and Minds – 9:20 a.m.

Praising God with All of Our Heart

Our Call to Worship – Ephesians 2:1-9

Leader:  And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience – among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind. 

People:  But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ – by grace you have been saved – and raised us up with Him and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, 

Leader:  So that in the coming ages He might show the immeasureable riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. 

People:  For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. 

Rejoicing in His Rich Mercy and Great Love: “Grace” (Song of the Month)

Your grace that leads this sinner home

From death to life forever

And sings the song of righteousness

By blood and not by merit

 

Your grace that reaches far and wide

To every tribe and nation

Has called my heart to enter in

The joy of Your salvation

 

By grace I am redeemed

By grace I am restored

And now I freely walk

Into the arms of Christ my Lord

 

Your grace that I cannot explain

Not by my earthly wisdom

The prince of life, without a stain

Was traded for this sinner

Chorus

 

Let praise rise up and overflow

My song resound forever

For grace will see me welcomed home

To walk beside my Savior

Chorus

Prayers From God’s People of Grace

Comforted By His Love – Titus 3:4-7

But when the goodness and loving kindess of God our Savior appeared, He saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to His own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justified by His grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life. 

Thanking Our God for His Presence and Love

Knowing Christ and Making Him Known

Our Ministry to the World – Ed Soots

Seeking God with All of Our Soul

Praying for One Another in His Strength – Psalm 33:18-22

Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him, on those who hope in His steadfast love, that He may deliver their soul from death and keep them alive in famine. Our soul waits for the Lord; He is our help and our shield. For our heart is glad in Him, because we trust in His holy name. Let your steadfast love, O Lord, be upon us, even as we hope in you.

Praying to the God Who Hears – Elder Jesse Owens

Preparing Our Hearts to Give – Psalm 23 (Unison)

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death. I will fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Praising His Goodness: “King of Love”

The king of Love my shepherd is

Whose goodness faileth never

I nothing lack if I am His

And He is mine forever

And He is mine forever

Where streams of living water flow

My ransomed soul He leadeth

And where the verdant pastures grow

With food celestial feedeth

Never failing, ruler of my heart

Everlasting, lover of my soul

On the mountain high or in the valley low

The king of Love my shepherd is

The king of Love my shepherd is

Lost and foolish off I strayed

But yet in love He sought me

And on His shoulder gently laid

And home rejoicing brought me

In death’s dark veil I fear no ill

With Thee, dear Lord, beside me

Thy rod and staff my comfort still

Thy cross before to guide me

Chorus

Bridge

Oh, hallelujah, hallelujah

Oh, hallelujah, hallelujah

Never failing, ruler of my heart

Everlasting, lover of my soul

On the mountain high or in the valley low

The king of Love my shepherd is

Chorus

And so through all the length of days

Thy goodness faileth never

Good shepherd, may I sing Your praise

Within Your house forever

Within Your house forever

Listening to God with All Our Mind  

Preparing Our Hearts to Hear: “How Deep the Father's Love”

How deep the Father’s love for us, how vast beyond all measure

That He should give His only Son, to make a wretch His treasure

How great the pain of searing loss, the Father turns His face away

As wounds which mar the Chosen One, Bring many sons to glory

 

Behold the man upon a cross, my sin upon His shoulder

Ashamed, I hear my mocking voice, call out among the scoffers

It was my sin that held Him there, until it was accomplished

His dying breath has brought me life, I know that it is finished

 

I will not boast in anything, No gifts, no power, no wisdom

But I will boast in Jesus Christ, His death and resurrection

Why should I gain from His reward? I cannot give an answer

But this I know with all my heart, His wounds have paid my ransom

 

Why should I gain from His reward? I cannot give an answer

But this I know with all my heart, His wounds have paid my ransom

Going to Love Others in the World

Dismissed in Grace – Romans 12:9-16

Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality. Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. Live in harmony with one another.

Rejoicing in Our Salvation: “This Is My Worship”

In all I do and all I say, let Your love abound through me

On ev’ry path that my life takes let Your light shine out of me

In things that are seen and things that are hidden

I’ll seek to delight Your heart O God

For nothing is mine that You have not given

I’ll honor You Lord with my whole life.

 

This is my worship, this is my worship

Living for Your glory O God

In all of my dealings let me be pleasing

It is Jesus Christ who I serve.

 

With ev’ry gift Your mercy brings I will work toward Your cause

To share good news with every heart

is Your charge to those You’ve called

Your love is so vast, Your grace so compelling

And all that is good is sourced in You

Now as I draw near You call me to share in

the wonder of all the Godhead’s love.

Chorus
