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”.
Parenting IQ: Influential by Abidan Shah, PhD
This weekend, we will be focusing on the childhood years. Throughout Scripture, the importance of teaching and training children is emphasized. How we lead the children in our lives can help set them up for success and protect them from the influence of the world. This weekend’s message is titled “PARENTING IQ: INFLUENTIAL.”
Pathway by Dr. Abidan Shah
This weekend, we will be focusing on Proverbs 22:6. This is a well-known verse, but when times are stressful or difficult, we are quick to forget God’s promise when our children are trained up under godly instruction. The title of this weekend’s message is “PATHWAY.”
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.
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.
Training Part Two by Pastor Abidan Shah
This weekend’s message is a continuation of “TRAINING” from last weekend. We are continuing to look at God’s design for raising children. This week, we will be looking at Psalm 50. God is commanding believers to not assume they can speak for Him or understand His nature. He is God and their assumptions of His character are insulting and sinful.
Training by Pastor Abidan Shah
The message this weekend is titled “TRAINING.” The book of Proverbs teaches us that we ought to train children in the way they should go. This weekend, we will take a more in-depth look at what that way looks like and how we can teach our children to follow God’s plan for their lives.
Raising Overcomers by Pastor Abidan Shah

Parents Behaving Badly by Pastor Abidan Shah
Unfortunately, we live in a time where it's not just the children who do the unthinkable, but also some parents. They make choices and live in such a way that embarrasses the children.
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!
Keeping Your Kids Out of Hell by Pastor Abidan Shah
As a pastor, I’ve seen many times how parents have made decisions that have driven their kids away from God. We will contrast this in how Abraham and Lot raised their children.
Children That Bring Delight by Pastor Abidan Shah
In this weekend’s message titled “Children That Bring Delight,” we will see what the Trinity has to say about being children who honor their parents.
