Welcome to

Join Us for Sunday Worship Services at 10 AM
In Church Services with Holy Communion
or Drive-In Services with Drive-Thru Holy Communion
Holy Trinity has returned to indoor worship.  At the June 21 meeting, Council reviewed the current situation and decided to accelerate the reopening of the church. At a high level, this removes all restrictions by July 25, two weeks earlier than previously planned.  The removal of social distancing in seating is now being removed at the same time as the mask requirement, and other steps are being moved forward by two weeks.  Please click here to view the detail plans and timetable for removing COVID restrictions.

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

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!

Bible Studies at Holy Trinity are based on current and relevant life challenges in this rapidly changing world. How can you be your authentic self, follow God's calling to serve others with resources, confidence and compassion? Our study leaders prayerfully consider the topics and materials to help answer these questions. Together we grow spiritually stronger. Join us. Everyone is welcome!  Currently we are meeting safely by Zoom. E-mail the group leaders, the church office or you are welcome to call the church (423-247-9106) for more information.

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!

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.
