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.

And some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Him, “Teacher, rebuke Your disciples.” He answered, “I tell you, if these were silent, the very stones would cry out.”
Luke 19:39,40

 

 

Worship

Worship Theme:

“Jesus:  Our Humble King of Glory”

“Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout aloud, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your King is coming to you; righteous and having salvation is He, humble and mounted on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.”

Zechariah 9:9

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

We Worship in the King’s Glory

Calling Ourselves to Worship – Psalm 24:7-10

Leader:  Lift up your heads, O gates!

People:  And be lifted up, O ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. 

Leader:  Who is this King of glory?

People:  The LORD, strong and mighty, the LORD, mighty in battle!

Leader:  Lift up your heads, O gates!

People:  And lift them up, O ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. 

Leader:  Who is this King of glory?

People:  The LORD of hosts, He is the King of glory!

Exalting Our King: "All Glory, Laud, and Honor"

All glory laud and honor, to Thee Redeemer King

To whom the lips of children, made sweet hosannas ring

Thou art the King of Israel, thou David’s royal Son

Who in the Lord’s name comest, the King and Blessed One

 

The people of the Hebrews, with palms before Thee went

Our praise and prayer and anthems, before Thee we present

To Thee before Thy passion, they sang their hymns of praise

To Thee now high exalted, our melody we raise

 

Thou didst accept their praises, accept the prayers we bring

Who in all good delightest, Thou good and gracious King

All glory laud and honor, to Thee Redeemer King

To whom the lips of children, made sweet hosannas ring

Remembering Our King’s Work – Luke 13:33-35

“Neverless, I must go on My way today and tomorrow and the day following, for it cannot be that a prophet should perish away from Jerusalem. O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to it! How often would I have gathered your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you were not willing! Behold, your house is forsaken. And I tell you, you will not see me until you say, ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!'”

Confessing Our Sins Together

O King of Glory, we confess that our praise of Your majesty has often been faint, our performance as citizens of Your kingdom lacking. For we have surrendered to the enemy by our secret and known sins. For our treason you died, Lord Jesus. For our restoration, you rose again. Draw us closer to you in this Holy Week, that our eyes may catch the vision of your tears, and our hearts, the wonder of your grace. By the Holy Spirit’s continuing discipline, let us be loyal and loving servants of the King. Praise be to you, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen. 

Rejoicing in Our Forgiveness: "Crown Him" - (I Am They)

It’s not my life to live

It’s not my song to sing

All I have is His

For all eternity

 

It’s not my righteousness

It’s not my faithfulness

All I have is His

For all eternity

We Will

 

Crown Him, crown Him, King of Glory

Crown Him, crown Him, Lord of All

Crown Him, crown Him, King of Glory

Crown Him, crown Him, Lord of All

 

It’s not my war to win

It’s not my weight to bear

By His mighty hand

He won the victory

He won the victory

Chorus

 

It’s not my blood but His

That stands in my defense

Oh what love is this

That won the victory

He won the victory

Chorus

 

Crown Him Crown Him Lord of All

Thanking the Lord for His Presence Among Us

We Thank the King for His Care

Through Prayer – Matthew 11:15-17

And they came to Jerusalem. And He entered the temple and began to drive out those who sold and those who bought in the temple, and He overturned the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who sold pigeons. And He would not allow anyone to carry anything through the temple. And He was teaching them and saying to them, “Is this not written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer for all the nations’? But you have made it a den of robbers.”

Praying to the King for His Servants – Elder Jesse Owens

Through Giving – Psalm 118:25-29

Save us, we pray, O Lord! O Lord, we pray, give us success! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord! We bless you from the house of the Lord. The Lord is God, and He has made His light to shine upon us. Bind the festal sacrifice with cords, up to the horns of the altar! You are my God, and I will give thanks to you; you are my God; I will extol you. Oh give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; for His steadfast love endures forever!

Praising His Goodness: "Christ Is Mine Forevermore" Song of the Month

Mine are days that God has numbered

I was made to walk with Him

Yet I look for worldly treasure

And forsake the King of kings

But mine is hope in my Redeemer

Though I fall His love is sure

For Christ has paid for every failing

I am His forevermore

 

Mine are tears in times of sorrow

Darkness not yet understood

Through the valley I must travel

Where I see no earthly good

But mine is peace that flows from heaven

And the strength in times of need

I know my pain will not be wasted

Christ completes His work in me

 

Mine are days here as a stranger

Pilgrim on a narrow way

One with Christ I will encounter

Harm and hatred for His name

But mine is armour for this battle

Strong enough to last the war

And He has said He will deliver

Safely to the golden shore

 

And mine are keys to Zion city

Where beside the King I walk

For there my heart has found its treasure

Christ is mine forevermore

 

Come rejoice now O my soul

For His love is my reward

Fear is gone and hope is sure

Christ is mine forevermore

(repeat 2x)

 

And mine are keys to Zion city

Where beside the King I walk

For there my heart has found its treasure

Christ is mine forevermore

Christ is mine forevermore

Christ is mine forevermore

We Rest In The King’s Love

Invited to the King’s Table

Communing with Our Lord and One Another

Rejoicing in the King's Grace: "Be Thou My Vision"

Be Thou my vision, O Lord of my heart

Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art

Thou my best thought, by day or by night

Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light

 

Be Thou my wisdom, and Thou my true Word

I ever with Thee, and Thou with me Lord

Thou my great Father, I Thy true son

Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one

 

Be Thou my battle shield sword for my fight

Be Thou my dignity, Thou my delight

Thou my soul’s shelter, Thou my high tow’r

Raise Thou me heav’nward, O pow’r of my pow’r

 

Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise

Thou mine inheritance, now and always

Thou and Thou only, first in my heart

High King of heaven, my treasure Thou art

 

High King of heaven, my victory won

May I reach heaven’s joys, O bright heaven’s Sun

Heart of my own heart, whatever befall

Still be my vision, O Ruler of all

Benediction – 1 Timothy 1:17

To the King of ages, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.

Departing in Joy: "Crown Him With Many Crowns"

Crown Him with many crowns

The Lamb upon His throne

Hark how the heav’nly anthem drowns

All music but its own

Awake my soul and sing, of Him who died for Thee

And hail Him as thy matchless King

Thru all eternity

 

Crown Him the Lord of love

Behold His hands and side

Rich wounds yet visible above

In beauty glorified

No angel in the sky, can fully bear that sight


But downward bends his wond’ring eye


At mysteries so bright

 

Crown Him the Lord of life

Who triumphed o’er the grave

Who rose victorious to the strife

For those He came to save

His glories now we sing, who died and rose on high

Who died eternal life to bring

And lives that death may die

 

Crown Him the Lord of heav’n

One with the Father known

One with the Spirit thru Him giv’n

From yonder glorious throne

To Thee be endless praise, for Thou for us hast died

Be Thou, O Lord thru endless days

Adored and magnified

Be Thou, O Lord thru endless days

Adored and magnified
