This weekend, we reach the end of our series “MAN OF PROMISE.” We have seen God’s faithfulness to Abraham and Sarah through his calling them, establishing his covenant, and promising a child. In this message, we will examine Abraham’s infamous test in offering Isaac as a sacrifice. There is a much deeper truth to this narrative than merely a test of obedience. Abraham is able to glimpse the redemptive plan of God and understand better his part in it. The title of this weekend’s message is “MAN OF PROMISE: CONCLUSION.”
Laughter by Abidan Shah, PhD
This weekend, we are continuing to move through the lives of Abraham and Sarah. They have struggled to understand God’s promise and see the ways he has been working in their lives. God plainly reminds them both that the promise will result in a child, their child, that will usher in blessings for the entire world. Sarah laughs, first in disbelief and later in joy at the birth of her son, Isaac. The title of this weekend’s message is “MAN OF PROMISE: LAUGHTER.”
Multitude by Abidan Shah, PhD
In this very special message this weekend, we will examine the culture of Clearview itself. This is more than just a service that we attend or a building where ministries meet. Clearview is a family that God brought into our lives. We all have a responsibility in the ministry and impact of our church in reaching people and creating a community here. The title of this weekend’s message is “MULTITUDE.”
Legends by Abidan Shah, PhD
This weekend, as we continue to learn about Noah and the flood, we will compare the biblical account to ancient myths and mythologies from cultures around the world. The presence of other flood narratives might seem strange, but when we look closer we will find proof of the authority of God’s Word in these “LEGENDS”.
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.”
Plunder by Dr. Abidan Shah
This weekend, we conclude Isaiah 53 and focus on the reward for Jesus’ obedience. Isaiah writes about Jesus’ seeing generations beyond Himself, pointing forward to the resurrection and His victory over death and the grave. We were stolen out of God’s hand, but Christ came to rob the grave and steal us back. The title of today’s message is “PLUNDER.”
Living Hope by Dr. Abidan Shah
This weekend, we are moving forward through the book of 1 Peter. Peter is writing to an audience that was exiled and displaced. Hope would have been difficult to come by. And yet, he reminds them that their source of hope is God and what He has done for them and for all of us. The title of this weekend’s message is “LIVING HOPE.”
Identity by Dr. Abidan Shah
This weekend, we begin going through Peter’s letter to Jewish believers scattered throughout the region. They were discouraged and felt like they no longer had an identity as a people group. Peter reminds them, not of their previous identity, but of their new identity as Christians. The title of this weekend’s message is “IDENTITY.”
Prayer: Doctrine by Dr. Abidan Shah
This weekend, we will explore the doctrine of prayer from Scripture. So many times in the Bible, God outlines for us the nature of prayer and the importance of talking with our Heavenly Father. The title of this weekend’s message is “PRAYER: DOCTRINE.”
Gospel-Centric by Dr. Abidan Shah
Last weekend, I began a series through the book of Philippians titled “COMMUNITY.” Now more than ever, we need to be reminded of the importance of meeting in a physical location and worshipping together physically. This weekend, we are continuing in our series on Paul’s letter to the Philippians. Paul wanted his readers to understand that above all else, the message of the gospel must be the focal point in the lives of believers. It should be our true north, guiding us through the storms and trials of life. This weekend’s message is titled “GOSPEL-CENTRIC.”
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."
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!

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.”
Cost by Pastor Abidan Shah
This weekend, we will be looking at Jesus’ words to His disciples. He describes the cost of living a life of obedience to God and taking up their crosses to follow after Him. This parable caused the disciples to examine their hearts and determine if they were truly willing to forsake all others and follow Jesus. The title of this weekend’s message is “COST.”
Sustenance by Pastor Abidan Shah
This weekend, we are celebrating the Lord’s Supper. This is always such a powerful time of worship as we remember the sacrifice that Jesus made for us. However, communion can often become just another ritual; something we do because we always have. This weekend, we will seek to understand the purpose behind communion and it’s significance for us. We will be reminded that Christ is our “SUSTENANCE.”
