Acts Sermon Series | Summer 2013

We began a series on Living By the Spirit through the Book of Acts on May 26th.  During this series we're seeking to look at how the early church lived by the Holy Spirit.  Living by the Spirit renews, empowers and refreshes us.  Living by the Spirit leads and guides us each day.  Join us as we live by the Spirit this summer.
