Holy Spirit Sermon Series: Questions Needed!

It has been said that the Holy Spirit is the least understood member of the Trinity.  In an upcoming sermon series we will seek to bring some clarity to our understanding of who the Holy Spirit is and the role that the Holy Spirit plays in each of our lives (whether we know it or not). A big part of this series will be responding to your questions about the Holy Spirit. Please fill this form out with your questions!
