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.

“Your father Abraham rejoiced that he would see my day. He saw it and was glad.”
So the Jews said to Him, “You are not yet fifty years old, and have you seen Abraham?”
Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I am.”
John 8:56-58

 

 

Worship

Worship Theme:

“Jesus:  The Promise of The Covenant”

“Now the promises were made to Abraham and to his offspring. It does not say, “And to offsprings,” referring to many, but referring to one, “And to your offspring,” Who is Christ.

Galatians 3:16

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

Praising Our Christ

Our Call to Worship – Psalm 105:1-11

Leader:  Oh give thanks to the Lord; call upon His name; make known His deeds among the peoples! Sing to Him, sing praises to Him; tell of all His wondrous works! Glory in His holy name, let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice!  

People:     Seek the Lord and His strength; seek His presence continually! Remember the wondrous works that He has done, His miracles, and the judgements He uttered, O offspring of Abraham, His servant, children of Jacob, His chosen ones!

Leader:     He is the Lord our God; His judgements are in all the earth. He remembers His covenant forever, the word that He commanded, for a thousand generations, the covenant He made with Abraham. 

People:     His sworn promise to Isaac, which He confirmed to Jacob as a statute, to Israel as an everlasting covenant, saying, “To you I will give the land of Canaan as your portion for an inheritance.” 

Rejoicing in Our Great God: "All People That On Earth Do Dwell"

All people that on earth do dwell

Sing to the Lord with cheerful voice

Him serve with fear, His praise forthtell

Come ye before Him and rejoice

 

The Lord ye know is God indeed

Without our aid He did us make

We are His folk, He doth us feed

And for His sheep He doth us take.

 

O, enter then His gates with praise

Approach with joy His courts unto

Praise, laud, and bless His name always

For it is seemly so to do

 

For why? The Lord our God is good

His mercy is forever sure

His truth at all times firmly stood

And shall from age to age endure

 

Praise God from whom all blessings flow

Praise Him, all creatures here below

Praise Him above, ye heav’nly host

Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost

Preparing Our Hearts Before the Lord – Luke 1:68-75  

Blessed be the Lord God of Israel, for He has visited and redeemed His people and has raised up a horn of salvation for us in the house of His servant David, as He spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets from of old, that we should be saved from our enemies and from the hand of all who hate us; to show the mercy promised to our fathers and to remember His holy covenant, the oath that He swore to our father Abraham, to grant us that we, being delivered from the hand of our enemies, might serve him without fear, in holiness and righteousness before Him all our days.

Confessing Our Sins Privately

Our Forgiveness in Word – Ephesians 2:11-13

Therefore remember that at one time you Gentiles in the flesh, called “the uncircumcision” by what is called the circumcision, which is made in the flesh by hands – remember that you were at that time separated from Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.

Our Forgiveness in Song: "Endless Mercy of God"

The endless mercy of God

Shall ever be my ground secure

God unchanging will be my rock

Whom eternity assures

 

The endless mercy of our God

The endless mercy of our God

Forevermore shall endure

The endless mercy of our God

 

The endless mercy of God

Displayed upon a cross so vile

The wrath of God there satisfied

And man be reconciled

 

Chorus

 

The endless mercy of God

The Holy Spirit hath He sealed

And written there in ink that ne’er

Shall fade nor be concealed

 

Chorus 2x

Thanking Our God for His Presence and Love

Thankful for the Promise of His Provision

Praying for One Another in His Strength – Genesis 18:12-14

So Sarah laughed to herself, saying, “After I am worn out, and my lord is old, shall I have pleasure?” The Lord said to Abraham, “Why did Sarah laugh and say, ‘Shall I indeed bear a child, now that I am old?’ Is anything too hard for the Lord? At the appointed time I will return to you, about this time next year, and Sarah shall have a son.”

Praying to the God Who Hears – Elder Michael Allen

Preparing Our Hearts to Give – Genesis 14:18-20

And Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine. (He was priest of God Most High.) And he blessed him and said, “Blessed be Abram by God Most High, Possessor of heaven and earth; and blessed be God Most High, who has delivered your enemies into your hand!” And Abram gave him a tenth of everything.

Offering for the Ministry of His Church

Praising His Goodness: "By Faith"

By faith we see the hand of God

In the light of creation’s grand design

In the lives of those who prove His faithfulness

Who walk by faith and not by sight

 

By faith our fathers roamed the earth

With the pow’r of His promise in their hearts

Of a holy city built by God’s own hand

A place where peace and justice reign

 

We will stand as children of the promise

We will fix our eyes on Him our soul’s reward

Till the race is finished and the work is done

We’ll walk by faith and not by sight

 

 

By faith the prophets saw a day

When the longed-for Messiah would appear

With the pow’r to break the chains of sin and death

And rise triumphant from the grave

 

By faith the church was called to go

In the pow’r of the Spirit to the lost

To deliver captives and to preach good news

In ev’ry corner of the earth

 

Chorus

 

By faith the mountains shall be moved

And the pow’r of the gospel shall prevail

For we know in Christ all things are possible

For all who call upon His name

 

Chorus

Sharing in the Love of the Lord of Life

Meeting the Lord at His Table

Sharing in the Grace of Jesus with One Another

Commitment In Our Communion: "In Christ Alone"

In Christ alone, my hope is found

He is my light, my strength, my song

This Cornerstone, this solid ground

Firm through the fiercest drought and storm

What heights of love, what depths of peace

When fears are stilled, when strivings cease!

My Comforter, my all in all,

Here in the love of Christ I stand

 

In Christ alone, who took on flesh

Fullness of God in helpless Babe

This gift of love and righteousness

Scorned by the ones He came to save

‘Til on that cross, as Jesus died

The wrath of God was satisfied

For ev’ry sin on Him was laid.

Here in the death of Christ I live

 

There in the ground His body lay

Light of the world by darkness slain

Then bursting forth in glorious day

Up from the grave He rose again!

And as He stands in victory

Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me

For I am His, and He is mine

Bought with the precious blood of Christ

 

No guilt in life, no fear in death

This is the pow’r of Christ in me

From life’s first cry to final breath

Jesus commands my destiny

 

No pow’r of hell, no scheme of man

Can ever pluck me from His hand

‘Til He returns or calls me home

Here in the pow’r of Christ I’ll stand

(Repeat)

In Christ Alone” © 2001 Stuart Townend and Keith Getty, Kingway’s Thankyou Music

Going to Serve the Lord Who Reigns

Dismissed in Grace – Hebrews 13:20,21

Now may the God of peace who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant, equip you with everything good that you may do His will, working in us that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.

Rejoicing In Our Call: "Ancient of Days"

Though the nations rage, kingdoms rise and fall
There is still one King reigning over all
So I will not fear for this truth remains:
That my God is, the Ancient of Days


None above Him, none before Him
All of time in His hands
For His throne it shall remain and ever stand
All the power, all the glory
I will trust in His name
For my God is, the Ancient of Days

Though the dread of night overwhelms my soul
He is here with me, I am not alone
O His love is sure, and He knows my name
For my God is, the Ancient of Days

Chorus

Though I may not see what the future brings
I will watch and wait for the Saviour King
Then my joy complete standing face to face
In the presence of the Ancient of Days

Chorus

None above Him, none before Him
All of time in His hands
For His throne it shall remain and ever stand
All the power, all the glory
I will trust in His name
For my God is, the Ancient of Days
For my God is, the Ancient of Days
