HARTSVILLE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH (PCA)

Offering the whole Christ from the whole Bible for the whole community

Lord's Day Worship Services

We are glad you have found Hartsville Pres on our website. While our church is not able to meet physically in a building, we will not give up meeting together as the Church, the Body of Christ, to worship our Lord. 


Below, you will find videos of our morning and evening Lord's Day Worship Services. You may follow along in the services with the order of worship also printed below, or click here to download bulletins for viewing and printing.


We welcome you to contact our pastors if you have any questions about our church, our services, the gospel of Jesus Christ, or any concerns. 


Morning Worship, March 29, 2020




Welcome and Announcements: Rev. David L. McIntosh, Jr.


Call to Worship: Psalm 149:1-2


Hymn of Praise: Holy, Holy, Holy

Trinity Hymnal #100


1. Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!

Early in the morning our song shall rise to thee.

Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty!

God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!


2. Holy, holy, holy! All the saints adore thee,

casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;

cherubim and seraphim falling down before thee,

who wert, and art, and evermore shalt be.


3. Holy, holy, holy! Though the darkness hide thee,

though the eye of sinful man thy glory may not see,

only thou art holy; there is none beside thee

perfect in pow'r, in love, and purity.


4. Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!

All thy works shall praise thy name in earth and sky and sea.

Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty!

God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!


Confession of Sin


Merciful God, we confess that we have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done, and by what we have left undone. We have not loved you with our whole heart and mind and strength. We have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. In your mercy forgive what we have been, help us amend what we are, and direct what we shall be, so that we may delight in your will and walk in your ways, to the glory of your holy name. Through Christ, our Lord. Amen.


Word of Pardon: Romans 6:23

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.


Doxology

Praise God from whom all blessings flow; praise him, all creatures here below;

Praise him above, ye heavenly host; Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen. 


Scripture Reading: Acts 17:1-15


Pastoral Prayer: Pastor McIntosh


Preaching of the Word: Psalm 84

Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder

Pastor McIntosh


Hymn of Response: Jesus, I Come

from Reformed University Fellowship's Indelible Grace Hymnbook


1. Out of my bondage, sorrow and night,

Jesus, I come; Jesus I come.

Into Thy freedom, gladness and light,

Jesus, I come to Thee.

Out of my sickness into Thy health,

Out of my wanting and into Thy wealth,

Out of my sin and into Thyself,

Jesus, I come to Thee.


2. Out of my shameful failure and loss,

Jesus, I come; Jesus, I come.

Into the glorious gain of Thy cross,

Jesus, I come to Thee.

Out of earth’s sorrows into Thy balm,

Out of life’s storms and into Thy calm,

Out of distress into jubilant psalm,

Jesus, I come to Thee.


3. Out of unrest and arrogant pride,

Jesus, I come; Jesus, I come.

Into Thy blessed will to abide,

Jesus, I come to Thee.

Out of myself to dwell in Thy love,

Out of despair into raptures above,

Upward forever on wings like a dove,

Jesus, I come to Thee.


4. Out of the fear and dread of the tomb,

Jesus, I come; Jesus, I come.

Into the joy and light of Thy home,

Jesus, I come to Thee.

Out of the depths of ruin untold,

Into the peace of Thy sheltering fold,

Ever Thy glorious face to behold,

Jesus, I come to Thee.


Benediction: Pastor McIntosh

Evening Worship, March 29, 2020






Welcome and Announcements: Rev. David L. McIntosh


Call to worship: Psalm 84:1-4


Hymn of Praise: Amazing Grace

Trinity Hymnal #460


1. Amazing grace! - how sweet the sound

-that saved a wretch like me!

I once was lost, but now am found,

was blind, but now I see.


2. 'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,

and grace my fears relieved;

how precious did that grace appear

the hour I first believed!


3. Thro' many dangers, toils and snares,

I have already come;

'tis grace has brought me safe thus far,

and grace will lead me home.


4. The Lord has promised good to me,

his Word my hope secures;

he will my shield and portion be,

as long as life endures.


5. And when this flesh and heart shall fail,

and mortal life shall cease,

I shall possess within the veil

a life of joy and peace.


6. When we've been there ten thousand years,

bright shining as the sun,

we've no less days to sing God's praise

than when we've first begun.


Confession of Faith: Heidelberg Catechism #1


Pastor: What is my only comfort in life and death?


People: My only comfort in life and death is that I, with body and soul, both in life and death, am not my own, but belong unto my faithful savior Jesus Christ; who with his precious blood has fully satisfied for all my sins, and delivered me from all the power of the devil; and so preserves me that without the will of my heavenly father not a hair can fall from my head; yea, that all things must be subservient to my salvation, wherefore by his Holy Spirit he also assures me of eternal life, and makes me heartily willing and ready, henceforth, to live unto him.


Gloria Patri

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost; 

as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, 

world without end. Amen, amen. 


Scripture reading: Exodus 29:38-30:10


Pastoral Prayer: Rev. James Robbins


Preaching of the Word: Proverbs 1:7

The Fear of the Lord

Pastor Robbins


Hymn of Response: Fairest Lord Jesus

Trinity Hymnal #170


1. Fairest Lord Jesus, Ruler of all nature,

Son of God and Son of Man!

Thee will I cherish, thee will I honor,

thou, my soul's glory, joy, and crown.


2. Fair are the meadows, fair are the woodlands,

robed in the blooming garb of spring:

Jesus is fairer, Jesus is purer,

who makes the woeful heart to sing.


3. Fair is the sunshine, fair is the moonlight,

and all the twinkling, starry host:

Jesus shines brighter, Jesus shines purer

than all the angels heav'n can boast.


4. Beautiful Savior! Lord of the nations!

Son of God and Son of Man!

Glory and honor, praise, adoration,

now and for evermore be thine.


Benediction: Pastor Robbins
