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.”

Justification: Imputation

This weekend, we will be examining the process of salvation. We use the language of being saved or asking Jesus into your heart a lot, but what exactly is happening? As we will learn from this message, the process of justification involves Christ taking away our sins and giving us His righteousness so that we may be counted as blameless before God. The title of this weekend’s message is “JUSTIFICATION: IMPUTATION.”

Justification: Instruction by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we will continue in our series as we head toward Easter. We will be taking a look at the law of God and its impact on the life of the believer. This is something that might be difficult for us to understand. Maybe you think of the law of God as being an Old Testament concept and that after Jesus, the Christian life was all about grace. While the grace of God is important, the law of God is not diminished. This weekend’s message is titled “JUSTIFICATION: INSTRUCTION.”

Justification: Indispensable by Dr. Abidan Shah

In the weeks leading up to Easter, we will begin new series focused on the cross and what Jesus has accomplished for us. Most believers have a very incomplete understanding of the cross. The concepts of salvation, justification, and atonement, however, are central to our faith. We will gain a better understanding of Christ’s work on the cross through this series titled “JUSTIFICATION.”

Rescued by Dr. Abidan Shah

In this weekend’s message, we will actually turn our attention to Psalm 34 and examine David’s words after his poor choices. They are a reminder to all generations that God rescues His people from trouble, even if that trouble is caused by our own hands. The title of this weekend’s message is “RESCUED”.

Guardian by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we will take a look at the pillar of cloud and fire that led the Israelites. This supernatural guide not only showed them which way to go, but also offered them protection from their enemies. Through this, God reminded His people that He would protect and guide them even during difficult times. The title of this weekend’s message is “GUARDIAN.”

Community by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we are going back to the book of Philippians. Paul's letter to the Philippian believers addresses the importance of their partnership in sharing the gospel and expanding the ministry of the church. I cannot think of a better time for us to talk about community! Join us as we begin a new series through the book of Philippians titled "COMMUNITY."

Walking in the Steps by Dr. Abidan Shah

It is always so amazing to walk around these different locations, knowing that you are standing on sites mentioned in Scripture! It’s like watching the stories of the Bible come to life before your very eyes! This weekend, we will hear from some of the team members that just returned. They will share about what this trip meant to them, how it changed their perspective of the Bible, and how it helped them to grow in the faith. The title of the message this weekend is “WALKING IN THE STEPS.”

Worship this Weekend at Clearview Church!

This weekend, we will have the opportunity to hear from some of the men in our church family. These men will be sharing what God has laid on their hearts and helping us to think about how we as believers ought to live. We are so blessed to be part of a church family with such godly leaders and teachers!

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.”

Related by Dr. Abidan Shah

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.”

Christmas Mythbusters by Dr. Abidan Shah

How should we as Christians celebrate Christmas? With so many things like lights, Christmas trees, presents, and more, it’s difficult to discern the meaning of it all. This weekend, we will take a look at some of these traditions, some myths surrounding Christmas, and we will uncover the true meaning of the season. The title of this weekend’s message is “CHRISTMAS MYTHBUSTERS.”

Invitation by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we are taking a look at the parable of the wedding feast. Through this parable, Jesus helped His audience see that there is an invitation, but it is up to us to respond. The title of this weekend’s message is “INVITATION.”

Treasure by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we turn our attention to the parable of the man with a surplus harvest. He wanted to build bigger barns to make room for his harvest and then sit back and enjoy the easy life. However, God declares that his riches are meaningless in light of eternity. The title of this weekend’s message is “TREASURE.”

Debt: Part 2 by Pastor Shah

This weekend, we will take a second look at the parable of the unforgiving servant. This time, we will be looking at the parable through the lens of extending forgiveness to other people. Offering forgiveness after we have been wronged is often difficult to do, but when we understand what we have been forgiven by God, it becomes the obvious choice. The title of this weekend’s message is “DEBT: PART TWO.”

Consequence by Pastor Abidan Shah

This weekend, we are going to look at the parable of the rich man and Lazarus. There are two kinds of rich people: the benevolent rich and the oppressive rich. The rich man in this parable was oppressive and an unrepentant sinner. He did not show mercy to Lazarus, poor man, yet begged for mercy on the other side.

Forgiven by Pastor Abidan Shah

This weekend, we will be turning our attention to the parable of the two debtors. Through this parable, Jesus illustrates God’s mercy and the people’s misunderstanding of forgiveness. There are two individuals who respond very differently according to the size of their respective debts. The title of this weekend’s message is “FORGIVEN.”

Prodigal by Pastor Abidan Shah

This weekend, we are taking a look at one of the most iconic parables in Scripture: the parable of the prodigal son. Typically, people focus on the son who loses his way and squanders his inheritance, but there are two sons in this story. Each son communicates important truths that should give us pause and cause us to examine our hearts. The title of this weekend’s message is “PRODIGAL.”

Fruitful by Pastor Abidan Shah

This weekend, we will be looking at the parable of the sower, although the parable is really about the different types of soil. Each different type received the same seed, but only the good soil produced a fruitful harvest. Jesus used this parable to make his listeners take a critical look at their spiritual lives to see if they were bearing fruit. The title of this weekend’s message is “FRUITFUL.”
