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 to all who did receive Him, who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.” 

John 1:12,13 

 

 

 

Worship

“The Fatherhood of God”

 “As a father shows compassion to his children, so the Lord shows compassion to those who fear Him. For He knows our fram; He remembers that we are dust.”

Psalm 103:13,14

 Music to Prepare Our Hearts – 9:20 am

 God Gathers His Church in Worship

Called to Praise – Romans 8:14-17

Leader:  For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!”

People:  The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs – heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with Him in order that we may also be glorified with Him.  

Leader:  For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us. For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God. 

People:  For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God. 

Rejoicing in His Love: "Great Is Thy Faithfulness"

Great is Thy faithfulness

 

O God my Father

 

There is no shadow

 

Of turning with Thee

 

Thou changest not

 

Thy compassions they fail not

 

As Thou hast been

 

Thou forever wilt be

 

 

 

Great is Thy faithfulness

 

Great is Thy faithfulness

 

Morning by morning

 

New mercies I see

 

All I have needed

 

Thy hand hath provided

 

Great is Thy faithfulness

 

Lord unto me

 

 

 

Summer and winter

 

And springtime and harvest

 

Sun moon and stars

 

In their courses above

 

Join with all nature

 

In manifold witness

 

To Thy great faithfulness

 

Mercy and love

 

 

Pardon for sin

 

And a peace that endureth

 

Thy own dear presence

 

To cheer and to guide

 

Strength for today

 

And bright hope for tomorrow

 

Blessings all mine

 

With ten thousand beside

Remembering and Renewing Our Love with the Father

(Based on passages from Matthew, Romans, Colossians, Hebrews, 1 John)

Because I am a Child of God, I don’t have to be anxious about my life. I don’t have to worry about what I will eat, or drink, or even wear. I know from creation that if my Father cares for the birds of the air and the fish of the sea that His care for me is even of a higher value. Father, forgive me when I place such little trust in You and in Your daily provision. 

Because I am a Child of God, I know that in any circumstance my Father is working all things together for my good and His Glory. Forgive me, Father, when I fail to see Your sovereign will and purpose in the circumstances of my life. 

Because I am a Child of God, I never have to fall back into the slavery of fear or guilt. I possess His Spirit that enables me to cry out, “Abba! Father!” I can be assured of His presence and peace. Forgive me, Father, when I fail to recognize Your eternal commitment to our relationship.  

Because I am a Child of God, I know without question that any discipline from my Father is a demonstration of His concern for my growth in grace. His desire is for the peaceful fruit of righteousness that allows me to share in His holiness. Father, forgive me when I ignore and even refuse Your sanctifying work in my life. 

Because I am a Child of God, I am in awe of the Love my Father has lavished on me. His Love is the greatest demonstration that reminds me everyday that I am truly one of His children. I am fully known by my Father and He loves me completely. Father, forgive me when I make little of Your love in my life; when I fail to make You my first love. And, forgive me when I fail to show Your love in my life to others. 

Finally, Because I am a Child of God, Jesus is not ashamed to be called my brother. My life is hidden in Christ and He will never leave me or forsake me. Because He is like me, He knows me! He knows every temptation; every pain, every heartache; every joy. And I know that when He appears I will be like Him and with Him forever. Father, forgive me when I refuse the help of Your Son in my time of need. Jesus, forgive me when I still try to be more like me and not like You. 

Our Response in Grace: "There Is A Redeemer"

There is a Redeemer Jesus God’s own Son

Precious Lamb of God Messiah Holy One

 

Jesus my Redeemer name above all names

Precious Lamb of God Messiah

O for sinners slain

 

When I stand in glory I will see His face

There I’ll serve my King forever

In that holy place

 

Thank You O my Father

For giving us Your Son

And leaving Your Spirit til

The work on earth is done

Thanking the Lord for His Presence

The Church Gives Thanks for His Care

Interceding Through Our Faithful God – Luke 15:18-20

I will arise and go to my father, and I will say to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Treat me as one of your hired servants.” And he arose and came to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion, and ran and embraced him and kissed him.

Praying for One Another – Elder Jon Ford

Through Giving for His Kingdom – Luke 11:9-13

And I tell you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. What father among you, if his son asks for a fish, will instead of a fish give him a serpent; or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!”

Our Offering for the Work of His Church

Proclaiming His Goodness: "How Deep The Father's Love For Us"

 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

Giving Our Thanks – The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, which art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.

Greeting One Another in Love

The Church Listens for His Truth

Proclaiming His Goodness: "Abide With Me" (Song of the Month)

Abide with me; fast falls the eventide

The darkness deepens; Lord with me abide

When other helpers, fail and comforts flee

Help of the helpless, abide with me

 

Thou on my head, in early youth didst smile

And, though rebellious, and perverse meanwhile

Thou hast not left me, though I oft left Thee

On to the close Lord, abide with me

 

I need Thy presence, every passing hour

What but Thy grace, can foil the tempter’s power

Who, like Thyself, my guide and stay can be

Through cloud and sunshine, abide with me

 

I fear no foe, with Thee at hand to bless

Ills have no weight, tears lose their bitterness

Where is thy sting death? Where grave thy victory

I triumph still, abide with me

 

Hold Thou Thy cross, before my closing eyes

Shine through the gloom, and point me to the skies

Heaven’s morning breaks, and earth’s vain shadows flee

In life, in death, Lord, abide with me

Sermon

 

 

   “Abba!”

Galatians 4:1-7

Pastor Bob Clark

The Church Rests in the Gospel of Christ

God of all Good, 

I bless Thee for the means of grace; teach me to see in them Thy loving purposes and the joy and strength of my soul. Thou hast prepared for me a feast; and though I am unworthy to sit down as guest, I wholly rest on the merits of Jesus, and hide myself beneath His righteousness; When I hear His tender invitation and see His wondrous grace, I cannot hesitate, but must come to Thee in love. (-taken from the Valley of Vision)

Meeting the Lord at His Table

Sharing in the Grace of Jesus with One Another

The Church Goes Out to Live for the Gospel

We Depart with His Blessing – 1 John 3:1-2

See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know Him. Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when He appears we shall be like Him, because we shall see Him as He is.

Our Thanks in Song: "Because He Lives (Amen)"

I believe in the Son

I believe in the Risen One

I believe I overcome

By the power of His blood

 

Amen Amen

I’m alive I’m alive because He lives

Amen Amen

Let my song join the one that never ends

Because He lives

 

I was dead in the grave

I was covered in sin and shame

I heard mercy call my name

He rolled the stone away

Chorus

 

I can face tomorrow

Because He lives ev’ry fear is gone

I know He holds my life

My future in His hands

Chorus (2x)

 

Because He lives
