Ministries

Holy Trinity Lutheran Church has a number of ongoing ministries. Please read more about them below.

Prayer Chain

Please contact either Donna (donna.lee1594@gmail.com) or Briana (holland23@comcast.net)

The prayer chain is for you to ask for prayer for family and friends with any medical or other emergency. Donna and Briana receive your prayer requests and then forward to over 40 people via email and phone. They receive close to a hundred prayer requests per year.

Reneal International Education Outreach

Reneal is a ministry founded by HTLC members, Rene and Neal Bierbaum. Reneal’s purpose is to provide support for students, their parents, teachers, and school administrators to enhance education  opportunities in schools in developing  countries. Recognizing the power of  technology in particular to change lives,
the primary focus of this organization is to provide Information Technology expertise and assets (computer hardware, computer software, and learning resources) to these schools.

For additional information please go to their website at: http://www.reneal.org

Food for the Homeless

As part of its outreach, Holy Trinity provides lunches to the TriCity Homeless Shelter on Fridays. Each week, we give 40 sandwiches and another lunch item to eat with them. If you are interested in providing food or helping deliver them Friday mornings, please call the church. We can give high school students 2 hours Community Service credit for making sandwiches
or for helping with the delivery.

Of Special Note

HTLC is now a Reconciling in Christ Congregation!

We are now on the RIC roster of LGBTQ-friendly churches due to our adoption of the following welcome statement:

We extend a heartfelt embrace to all who are seeking God’s love and grace. We welcome all because God welcomes all, regardless of race or culture, Deaf or hearing, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, or relationship status. We welcome all without regard to addictions, physical or mental health, varying intellects and abilities, imprisonment, socio-economic circumstances, or anything that too often divides us. We invite you, wherever you are in your faith journey, to join us in caring, sharing, and serving God through our unity in Christ. Welcome.

Cause of the Month

September 2017:
Lutheran Disaster Response: U. S. Hurricane Relief

Hurricane Harvey hit the Gulf Coast on August 25, and Irma is hard on its heels. As a response, we are changing our Cause of the Month to help those affected by U. S. hurricanes through Lutheran Disaster Response. Gifts to Lutheran Disaster Response designated for “Hurricane Response – United States” will be used entirely (100%) for this disaster until the response is complete. You can give to the Cause of the Month which is designated for hurricane relief, use the forms on the Media Table, or go to https://community.elca.org/ushurricanerelief. Together, we can help provide immediate and long-lasting support.
