Join us this Sunday, July 10th, in the Holy Trinity Sanctuary from 11:30am - 2:30pm as Pastor Bryan teaches his homosexuality and scripture class. During this 3 hour workshop, we’ll dig into the culture, customs, and language that gave birth to the Bible and see what the authors of this ancient book might’ve really been trying to say (or NOT say) about homosexuality. Together we’ll find that the Bible might not be as anti-gay as you’ve heard it is…” This is a great time for anyone and everyone to come, learn, and ask questions. Please Join us!

In light of the massacre in Orlando, and because of the many ways it touches our community, we wanted to provide time this week for us to gather.

Have you ever wondered “What makes Good Friday so ‘good?’” Isn’t Easter really the big day? Isn’t Good Friday a bit like Christmas Eve? What happens on Good Friday that’s such a big deal? Those are great questions…
When we celebrate Easter at Holy Trinity, we will celebrate the anniversary of the amazing morning when the women came to the empty grave and heard the angel say “he isn’t here, he is risen – just as he said he would!” We will rejoice that Christ is alive… that his love for us overcame both hate and the grave.
But, in order for us to fully appreciate the empty tomb, we also have to consider the grizzly events that put Jesus in the ground. Good Friday is that time of remembrance. It’s the anniversary of the day when Christ was crucified – a holy day when we grieve the savior’s death.
Will you come and honor Good Friday with us? Our service – a time of contemplation and thanks – will be at 6:30 on March 25th.

Join us on December 24th at 6pm for our Christmas Eve Service!
The holidays are a joyous time with family and friends! As Christians, during this season, we celebrate the birth of Jesus, and recognize this as a hope-filled time. However, within the joyous songs and cheerful celebrations, there is another reality often experienced--one we don't necessarily openly discuss. For many, this is also a time that grief and loss and darkness might swirl about within our emotions. If you find yourself wondering how to feel both loss and hope during this season, please join us on December 21st, at 6:30pm in the chapel at Holy Trinity Community Church as we come together to walk with one another honoring the blue side of Christmas.
