This Week's Events


Men's Bible Study by Zoom
7:30 AM to 8:30 AM
Topic: Max Lucado’s 1&2 Peter. What’s with Peter?

How did Peter respond to Persecution??

Max Lucado says, is his introduction:
“Begin with Peter’s survival manual. He understood persecution. Beaten and jailed. Threatened and punished. He knew the sting of the false word and the angry whip. No doubt he’d seen some Christians stand and others fall. He’d seen enough to know what it takes to stay strong in tough times.
His counsel may sustain you. It may be just what you need so that ‘the purity of your faith will bring you praise and glory and honor when Jesus Christ is shown to you.”

Come join us!

We meet on Wednesday morning at 7:30 a.m. Presently, we’re meeting via Zoom, so you don’t even have to get out of your pajamas. Come with a cup of coffee and enjoy the study and fellowship.

- - 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

Adult Sunday Bible Study - 6:30 PM Sundays

Women's Bible Study - 9 AM Tuesdays

Men's Bible Study - 7:30 AM Wednesdays


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.
