Hear Our Passion

Christ Presbyterian Church, founded in 1985, is open to families throughout the Greater Richmond Area to collectively grow their knowledge and love for Jesus Christ and God’s Word. We also encourage members to discover the true answer to questions concerning life and eternity.

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 will find the music for each current date of worship and current and past sermons uploaded for your listening convenience.

 Sunday Worship

November 22, 2020

“And I will betroth you to Me forever. I will betroth you to Me in righteousness and in justice, in steadfast love and mercy. I will betroth you to Me in faithfulness. And you shall know the Lord.”

HOSEA 2:19-20

 “The God Who Pursues”

Music to Prepare Our Hearts:  “Come Thou Fount (Of Every Blessing)”

Call to Worship – Psalm 139:1-6; 17-18

Leader:

“O Lord, You have searched me and known me! 

You know when I sit down and when I rise up; You discern my thoughts from afar.

You search out my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my ways.

Even before a word is on my tongue, behold, O Lord, You know it altogether.

You hem me in, behind and before, and lay Your hand upon me.

Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high; I cannot attain it.

Unison:

“How precious to me are Your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them!

If I would count them, they are more than the sand.

I awake, and I am still with You.”

Song – “Psalm 34 Taste And See”

Confession – Hosea 2:1a; 14-16; 19-20; 23

“Say to your brothers, ‘You are my people, …'”

“Therefore, I am now going to allure her; I will lead her into the desert, and tenderly speak to her.

…I will make the valley of trouble (Achor) a door of hope. There she will sing as in the days of her youth, as in the day she came up out of Egypt.

“In that day,” declares the Lord, “you will call Me ‘my husband’; you will no longer call Me ‘my master.’

… “I will betroth you to me forever. I will betroth you in righteousness and justice, in love and compassion. I will betroth you in faithfulness and you will acknowledge the Lord.

… “I will show my love to the one I called, ‘Not my loved one’. I will say to those called ‘Not my people,’ ‘You are my people’; …”

Assurance:  Luke 15:3-7

So He told them this parable:

“What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the open country, and go after the one that is lost, until he finds it?

And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing.

And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and his neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep that was lost.’

Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.

Song – “Reckless Love”

Prayer – Psalm 139:7-12

“Where shall I go from Your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from Your Presence?

If I ascend to heaven, You are there! If I make my bed in Sheol, You are there!

If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, 

even there Your hand shall lead me, and Your right hand shall hold me.

If I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me, and the light about me be night,”

even the darkness is not dark to You; the night is bright as the day, for darkness is as light with You.”

Offering – Psalm Psalm 139:13-16

“For You formed my inward parts; You knitted me together in my mother’s womb. 

I praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are Your works; my soul knows it very well. 

My frame was not hidden from You, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depts of the earth.

Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in Your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.

Prayer of Thanksgiving
