This weekend, we are going to look specifically at Gen Z and Generation Alpha. These are our children and grandchildren and the ones currently most in touch with the culture around us. We cannot afford to misunderstand or neglect these generations, because the world is aiming for their minds and hearts. If we can understand Gen Z and Generation Alpha, not only can we impact them for the gospel, but equip them to impact the world around them. This weekend’s message is titled “GENERATIONS: IMPACTING”.
Generations: Introduction by Dr. Abidan Shah
This weekend, as we begin our series, I want to lay a foundation for us and our discussion of generational differences. We will introduce a framework for the rest of the series that will help us understand each generation, how they see the world, and the strengths they possess. In doing so, we will not only build each other up, but will become more unified and effective as a church family. This weekend’s message is titled “GENERATIONS: INTRODUCTION.”
Parenting IQ: Introduction by Dr. Abidan Shah
This weekend, we will lay a foundation for our understanding of brain development as a whole. Much more than just parenting, we as believers should work toward a biblical understanding of how our minds grow and mature. This will help us be better parents, mentors, counselors, and followers of God!
Glorious by Dr. Abidan Shah
This weekend, we are continuing our series “ESSENTIAL” through the book of Ephesians. The relationship between Christ and the church affects every area of our lives, including our understanding of marriage. The relationship between a husband and wife should be modeled after the relationship between Christ and the church. The title of this weekend’s message is “GLORIOUS.”
Adopted Father by Dr. Abidan Shah
This weekend, I want to talk about more than just biological fathers. Throughout Scripture, we see godly men investing in and mentoring younger men. Perhaps the most famous example is that of Paul and Timothy, whom he refers to as his son in the faith. This Father’s Day weekend, I will be preaching a message on these adopted fathers who help guide us spiritually.
Marvelous by Dr. Abidan Shah
This weekend, we will take a look at Psalm 139, one of the greatest declarations of the sanctity of life in Scripture. Through these verses, God reminds us that He alone is the author of life. He has a plan for each and every life, including those babies that have yet to be born. The title of this weekend’s message is “MARVELOUS.”
Upbringing by Pastor Abidan Shah
This weekend, we will be looking at the relationship between Paul and Timothy. Paul repeatedly refers to Timothy as his son in the faith and makes a point to shape him spiritually, something Timothy’s own father failed to do. The title of this weekend’s message is “UPBRINGING.”
Vicious Cycle by Pastor Abidan Shah
We’re going to see the importance of handling this issue and how we as believers should respond when faced with the topic of abortion. The title of this weekend’s message is “VICIOUS CYCLE.” Have we, like so many around us, fallen into the vicious cycle of sin? How do you view the issue of abortion? Are you saved?
Train Up a Child (Article) by Abidan Paul Shah
Repeatedly, the Bible commands us to treat children with the utmost respect and care. This requires that we understand that what they truly deserve and desire from us is right training. Proverbs 22:6 lays out the 4 non-negotiables in this process.

MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR! (Article) by Abidan Paul Shah
One of my pet peeves is reading or listening to claims that many of our Christmas traditions are just pagan rituals that should be abandoned. Here are some facts on a few of them:
Raising Overcomers by Pastor Abidan Shah
In this message we will look at how Joseph was raised to overcome all odds and become an instrument of blessing to the whole world and his family.
Too Old for Time Out by Pastor Abidan Shah
This weekend’s message is titled, “TOO OLD FOR TIME OUT.” When kids are young, it’s so much easier to manage them and guide them. But, when they are older, it is so much harder to do that. They have a mind of their own and many times they do things that are contrary to our will. How should we handle that? This is a very important message for all parents, whether your kids are older or on their way.
Train Up a Child by Pastor Abidan Shah
We will be focusing on the characters of Esau and Jacob. They were both born in the same home but with different bents. Why does that happen? Why is it that kids growing up in the same home turn out so different? This message will help us deal with this question. It will also teach us seek God’s grace in parenting. We desperately need it!
