Welcome to
Holy Trinity Lutheran Church (HTLC)
Returning to indoor Worship Services on MAY 2, 2021
Sundays at 10 AM

Holy Trinity will be returning to indoor worship on Sunday, May 2.  While case counts are still high in our region, and we have not dropped to the level we set for return to worship last summer, several factors have led Council to believe this appropriate and safe.  First and foremost, the previous reopening level was set when we did not have a vaccine. We now have vaccines, and they are 99.992% effective.  Further, >80% of our attending members have been vaccinated.  We will continue to take precautions such as requiring masks at all times in the building and social distancing – and Council feels good about reopening under the current conditions and precautions. 

For those not yet ready to come back inside, the service will still be broadcast to the parking lot on FM 99.7 and drive-thru communion will still be offered each Sunday.


Our #1 priority is lifting the name of God on high while keeping you safe. Please continue to pray with us for God’s continued guidance as we seek to safely worship each week.
Please call the office and/or visit this site frequently for updates. 


Holy Trinity Lutheran Church is and will grow as an engaging and compassionate Lutheran worshipping community, grounded in the Word, where all are welcome to experience the grace and love of Christ through prayer, service and fellowship.


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 Motto —  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.

Drive-In Worship Service with Drive-thru Holy Communion Information

For those not yet ready to come back inside, the service will still be broadcast to the parking lot on FM 99.7 and drive-thru communion will still be offered each Sunday.  The main difference is that drive-thru communion will occur at the same time the Meal is distributed in the sanctuary, not after the benediction.  We encourage you to remain for the completion of the service after communing.  

All parking lot worshippers are asked to park in the grass lot across the street so the number of elements needed can be prepared for the drive-thru communicants.    A video of the service will continue to be available on-line on the following Monday.
