A Little Summer Bible Discussion Lunch for Gals!
11:30 AM to 12:30 PM
There is a new book on the best seller list called "Women of the Bible Speak: The Wisdom of 16 Women and Their Lessons for Today". I thought it would be interesting to meet over lunch to talk about the book. No homework or lessons. Just talk about it.

I suggest we meet on Wednesday July 28 at 11:30 at The Courtyard Restaurant downtown. Please let me know by Monday, July 26 if you plan to attend so I can make reservations.
Hope you are having a great summer.

Following Christ and our Vision, we promise to prayerfully live our faith in word and deed.  We commit ourselves and our gifts to God’s work of building, blessing and bringing in serving God’s people.  We challenge ourselves to focus on the needs of others, service to all and sharing God’s grace. When we do these things, we are Helping Transform Lives in Christ.

Our recent Souper Bowl for Hunger on Supper Bowl Sunday this year was a SUPPER success. We delivered 261 lbs. of food to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Kingsport.

A couple of our HTLC families participated in this years "Trashercise" where volunteers collected more than 1.3 tons of trash during 24th annual Riverview cleanup event.

Holy Week 2021 services at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church was a moving and connecting experience for all of our HTLC members and visitors! From a rainy, chilly Palm Sunday to a snowy Maundy Thursday parking lot service that culminated in a glorious, sunny, beautiful and moving Easter Sunday parking lot service with drive-thru Holy Communion. God's presence was felt strongly as we gathered outside of our beautiful church to glorify his Son's resurrection.

We celebrate our return to in-person worship services!

Pastor Scottie's Mid-Week Words of Encouragement for July 2021 is filmed at our own Warriors Path State Park at Darrell's Dream Boundless Playground here in Kingsport, TN.  For more information on this well designed playground, click here.
