Church of the Holy Spirit

Welcome to the Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit!

We are a community of faith seeking to love and serve in the Spirit of Jesus Christ.

The members of The Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit welcome all guests to our church. We have fun here. We laugh, we cry, we pray, we serve, and we live... all as a community of Christians devoted to our Lord Jesus Christ and to each other.

Come to one of our services. If we can help serve you in any way, we will welcome the opportunity.

If you are making your home in this community we extend to you a hearty invitation to make this your church home.

We challenge ourselves and the world to love like Jesus as we worship joyfully, serve compassionately, and grow spiritually.

Our Church's Beginnings

In 1974 our congregation started as a holy “coincidence,” when a young woman, Jeanie Lipscomb, had a conversation with Dr. James F. Hopewell, a theology professor at Candler School of Theology.

Jeanie said she would really like to have an Episcopal church in the Cumming area and Dr. Hopewell, an Episcopal priest, said he would be glad to help her start one. On Pentecost Day 1975, this church was established as a mission of the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta. The name “Holy Spirit” was chosen to emphasize the empowerment of ministry through the Spirit. Dr. Hopewell served as the founding vicar for five years and the Lipscomb family is still active in this parish.
