This weekend, we will turn our attention to the blessing of parenting. We know what it means to be a parent, but what does it truly look like to parent in a way that points our children to Christ? This message applies to all of us whether you are parents or not. God has entrusted children to us to lead, guide, and help shape into the people he would have them to be. What greater calling is there? The title of this weekend’s message is “BLESSED PART 2.”
This weekend, I want to begin a very special series focusing on the blessing of family. One of the most profound gifts of God mentioned in Scripture is that of a family. After Noah and his family came out of the ark, God commanded them to go forth and repopulate the earth. Engaging in building and nurturing our families is an act of obedience to God. The title of this weekend’s message is “BLESSED.”

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”.
This weekend, we will be focusing on adolescence. These years are a time of determining one’s identity and questioning the world around them. We’ll be taking a look at some common questions and misconceptions regarding student ministry and be reminded of the importance of reaching our teens. This weekend’s message is titled “PARENTING IQ: IDENTITY.”
This weekend, we will be focusing on the childhood years. Throughout Scripture, the importance of teaching and training children is emphasized.

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!
This weekend, we will spend time going back through the same passage and exposing areas of wrong thinking that we may have picked up from our parents or loved ones related to marriage. Peter’s letter will help us course correct and develop marriages that honor God and bless each other.
I am excited to announce that my wife, Nicole, will be joining me and sharing from a woman’s perspective the importance of marriage and safeguarding your relationship against the influence of the world. The title of this weekend’s message is “OPERATION SAFEGUARD.”
This weekend, we continue our study of Paul’s letter to the Ephesians. Paul reminds the believers that the church is essential because it is intended to reveal the wisdom of who God is to the world. We are called to proclaim and make known the character of God and His plan for the world. The title of this weekend’s message is “UNSEARCHABLE.”
This weekend, we will begin a brand new series in the book of Ephesians. This series will not only show us the importance of the church in our own lives, but how it shapes and molds our family relationships as well. The title of this new series is “ESSENTIAL.”
This weekend, we come to the end of Joshua’s life. Israel had continued to struggle with idolatry, even passing that struggle on to the next generation. Children were having the same issues their parents did. Joshua challenges Israel to think about what they are passing on to their kids. The title of this weekend’s message is “IMPART.”
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.”
This weekend, we will be taking a look at how God instructs us to relate to our family. Jesus Himself encountered family that created difficult situations. Although He was the Son of God, He still had sinful earthly family members and had to interact with them. They questioned Him, didn’t understand Him, and at times discredited Him. His response is a great example of how to interact with your family in a God-honoring way. The title of this weekend’s message is “RELATED.”
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.”
