The Highest Good
The Highest Good: a series in the Sermon on the Mount
Some of the most celebrated and debated words Jesus ever spoke are found in His "Sermon on the Mount" (Matthew 5-7). But how we take them rests squarely on how we understand both what He’s done for us and what He calls from us. Over the coming months we’ll take a patient look at the collection of His sayings that arguably outline “the highest good,” taking note not just of what He said but of why it matters that He’s the one who said them. As we hear His way in the shadow of His work, what in the Sermon feels impossible will soon begin to look beautiful.

Guest Speaker, Hunter Dockery
Hunter works with the executive director Bob Osborne to develop
ministry partnerships. He’s passionate about helping people get a glimpse into the mission’s work and see how to invest leadership skills, wisdom, and financial resources into this ministry. Because of Serge’s recent growth, Hunter believes ministry partners are needed now more than ever.
2018 Advent: "Strong Female Lead—Led by God: An Advent Series in the Book of Ruth"
The Book of Ruth both connects us to the storyline of Jesus (they’re related!) but also to the beauty of Jesus--in particular His appearing in the flesh, His Incarnation. The struggle found in the story is in fact the struggle of all our stories. Let’s see how the way God works in that struggle explains why hearing this story makes perfect sense during Advent--the season when we practice waiting in earnest for His arrival.
If you’re looking for a special Advent devotional, we suggest jumping in on the Advent Project by Dr. Barry Corey. Click the link below to join in on this daily series that includes music, poetry, art and devotional. It’s one of Patrick’s recommendations for the season!
Everyday Faith: A study in the book of James
Every life is in some measure lived by faith--placing our trust, our hope, our aspirations on notions whose full reality we can only see through a glass darkly. Faith is therefore an everyday thing. What then does it look like to live an everyday faith in Jesus as Lord? The letter from James to a church regarded either with great suspicion or utter indifference offers some assistance.
