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.

But you denied the Holy and Righteous One, and asked for a murderer to be granted to you, and you killed the Author of life, whom God raised from the dead. To this we are witnesses.

Acts 3:14,15

 

 

Worship

“Christ – The Author and Perfecter of Our Faith”

Looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.

Hebrews 12:2

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

Looking to the Founder of Our Faith – Hebrews 2:8-13

Leader:  Now in putting everything in subjection to Him, He left nothing outside His control. At present, we do not yet see everything in subjection to Him.

People:  But we see Him who for a little while was made lower than the angels, namely Jesus, crowned with glory and honor because of the suffering of death, so that by the grace of God He might taste death for everyone.

Leader: For it was fitting that He, for whom and by whom all things exist, in bringing many sons to glory, should make the founder of their salvation perfect through suffering. For He who sanctifies and those who are sanctified all have one source.

People: That is why He is not ashamed to call them brothers, saying, “I will tell of your name to my brothers; in the midst of the congregation I will sing your praise.” And again, “I will put my trust in Him.” And again, “Behold, I and the children God has given me.”

Rejoicing in Our New Life: “O Praise The Name” (Anástasis)

I cast my mind to Calvary

Where Jesus bled and died for me

I see His wounds His hands His feet

My Savior on that cursed tree

 

His body bound and drenched in tears

They laid Him down in Joseph’s tomb

The entrance sealed by heavy stone

Messiah still and all alone

 

O praise the Name of the Lord our God

O praise His Name forevermore

For endless days we will sing Your praise

Oh Lord, oh Lord our God

 

Then on the third at break of dawn

The Son of heaven rose again

O trampled death where is your sting

The angels roar for Christ the King

Chorus

 

He shall return in robes of white

The blazing sun shall pierce the night

And I will rise among the saints

My gaze transfixed on Jesus’ face

Chorus

Oh Lord, oh Lord our God

Looking to Our Advocate in Forgiveness  – 1 John 2:1-6

My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins  of the whole world. And by this we know that we have come to know Him, if we keep His commandments. Whoever says “I know Him” but does not keep His commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him, but whoever keeps His word, in him truly the love of God  is perfected. By this we may know that we are in Him: whoever says he abides in Him ought to walk in the same way in which He walked.

 Confessing Our Sins

Responding in Love: “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus”

Turn your eyes upon Jesus

Look full in His wonderful face

And the things of earth will grow strangely dim

In the light of His glory and grace

(Repeat)

Thanking the Lord for His Presence

We Give Thanks for His Care

Interceding Through Our Faithful Savior – Hebrews 5:7-9 

In the days of His flesh, Jesus offered up prayers and supplications, with loud cries and tears, to Him who was able to save Him from death, and He was heard because of His reverence. Although He was a son, He learned obedience through what He suffered. And being made perfect, He became the source of eternal salvation to all who obey Him.

Praying for the Covenant Community – Elder Jon Ford

Through Giving for His Kingdom – Hebrews 12:22-24a

But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to innumerable angels in festal gathering, and to the assembly of the firstborn who are enrolled in heaven, and to God, the judge of all, and to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant.

Our Offering for the Work of His Church

Proclaiming His Goodness: “We Will Feast In The House Of Zion”

We will feast in the house of Zion

We will sing with our hearts restored

He has done great things we will say together

We will feast and weep no more

 

We will not be burned by the fire

He is the Lord our God

We are not consumed by the flood

Upheld protected gathered up

In the dark of night before the dawn

My soul be not afraid

For the promised morning oh how long

Oh God of Jacob be my strength

 

Every vow we’ve broken and betrayed

You are the faithful one

And from the garden to the grave

Bind us together bring shalom

Preparing to Hear God's Word: "Saved My Soul" (Song of the Month)

You my God have saved my soul

I am Yours forevermore

I won’t be moved of this I’m sure

You are my God and You saved my soul

 

I was lost when You came for me

Held in chains by the enemy

But You broke them in victory

Now I’m free I am free

 

You’re my joy and You are my hope

I am saved by Your grace alone

I will sing of Your love for me

I am free I am free

Chorus

 

Now I stand with the King of kings

He has paid for my every sin

And from now through eternity

I am free I am free

Chorus

 

What once was dead is now alive

You gave to me the breath of life

You brought me up out from the grave

I’m bursting out with songs of praise

(Repeat)

I’m bursting out with songs of praise

I’m bursting out with songs of praise

 

You my God have saved my soul

I am Yours forevermore

I won’t be moved of this I’m sure

You are my God and You saved my soul

Sermon

 

  “Lace ‘Em Up – You’re Still in the Race”

 

Hebrews 12:1-17

 

Pastor Bob Clark

 

We Share Our Faith with One Another

Meeting The Lord At His Table

 Sharing In The Grace Of Jesus With One Another 

Reflecting on Our Faith in Christ: “When I Survey The Wondrous Cross”

When I survey the wondrous cross

On which the Prince of glory died

My richest gain I count but loss

And pour contempt on all my pride

 

Forbid it Lord that I should boast

Save in the death of Christ my God

All the vain things that charm me most

I sacrifice them to His blood

 

See from His head His hands His feet

Sorrow and love flow mingled down

Did e’er such love and sorrow meet

Or thorns compose so rich a crown

 

Were the whole realm of nature mine

That were a present far too small

Love so amazing so divine

Demands my soul my life my all

We Go to Run Our Race in Christ

 We Depart with His Blessing and Charge – Jude 24,25

Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of His glory with great joy, to the only God, our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen.

Our Faith in Song: "On Jordan’s Stormy Banks”

On Jordan’s stormy banks I stand

and cast a wishful eye

To Canaan’s fair and happy land

where my possessions lie

 

All o’er those wide extended plains

shines one eternal day

There God, the Son forever reigns

and scatters night away

 

[Men] I am bound [Women echo]

[Men] I am bound [Women echo]

I am bound for the Promised Land

(Repeat)

 

No chilling winds nor poisonous breath

can reach that healthful shore

Sickness, sorrow, pain and death

are felt and feared no more

Chorus

 

When shall I reach that happy place

and be forever blessed

When shall I see my Father’s face

and in his bosom rest

Chorus
