May 12 • THE HOLY SPIRIT – Be Filled with the Holy Spirit (week 2)

Gracepointkitsap   -  

Welcome Back!

Welcome to a New LifeGroup Session!

Before we jump into our study, let’s take a moment to remember that there are THREE things we want to see happen every time our LifeGroups gather:

– Movement towards Each Other
– Movement towards God
– Movement towards our Community

Our questions follow this same format. All of the questions are designed towards movement. We hope you enjoy your time together in your LifeGroup.
**Remember, our goal is to deepen our relationship with Jesus and each other. Use the questions that are helpful and skip the rest.



The Trinity is the most difficult biblical doctrine for the human brain to understand: There are 3 distinct aspects of singular Godhead. We can understand God the Father and we can identify with God the Son because we can read stories about Jesus. However, God the Spirit is a mystery to most people. This series will help you understand this amazing Helper that Jesus left for His followers.
