Welcome to
Holy Trinity Lutheran Church (HTLC)

- - Target for re-opening is two weeks after moving average is >17.3  YELLOW  - - 


Sullivan County 14-day moving average of new COVID cases is back up into the RED zone.  Based on the Reopening Guidelines agreed by Council in August, this means that we will continue with DRIVE-IN style worship until the 14-day average (a) drops below 17.4 AND (b) remains below 17.4 for at least 2 weeks (2 Sundays minimum).  

 Please Click here to go to our Reopening Summary for more detailed explanation.

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

HTLC is active in our community!

Serving lunch at the Salvation Army. Cooking and delivering meals for Meals on Wheels every week. We are a Family Promise host church every quarter. Summer VBS with extended hours to help out working families. Backpack drive each fall to provide backpacks and school supplies to homeless children in Kingsport City schools and Dickenson county, VA. Starting in November, we have our Socks & Undies Sundays to collect hats, gloves, underware and socks to provide for our homeless students program in the Kingsport City schools and Dickenson county, VA schools. We would love to have you come and volunteer in our many outreach programs!

Prayer Request

Adult Sunday School by Zoom - 6:30 pm Sundays

We are using a Bible Study that is based on current events.

We have a different, and relevant topic each week. Our sessions start with a little visitation, a few minutes of “check-in” to see how everyone is doing. Then, our Bible study lasts about an hour.

Please consider joining us on Sunday even if it’s only to say “hello” and to tell us how you are doing.


Women’s Bible Study by Zoom

Tuesdays 10 AM - Topic: A Bible study by Melissa Spoelstra on Numbers: Learning Contentment in a Culture of More. Contact Loretta Nitschke or the church office for the Zoom invite.


Men's Bible Study / Fellowship by Zoom
