Welcome in the name of our Risen Lord

Thank you for visiting our web page today. We have been missing for a few weeks. The cloud that hosted our website crashed, and it has taken a while for us to be up and running. We are still working on recovering all of our content, so continue to check back with us for information and special dates.

As goes our website, so goes our church. We are still working on recovery at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church. Covid 19 shut the in person church down for a number of weeks. Church continued on zoom, and many of us became comfortable with the zoom service. It was, and for some of us still is, tempting to sit on our soft couches, holding a cup of coffee in our hands and watching the worship service unfold. You hear scripture, receive absolution, and listen to the sermon. It all seems like a great way to start a Sunday morning.

Worship is more than an hour on your couch, in front of your “device.” It is being an active part of your worship community. It is confessing your sins and receiving absolution. It is hearing and reacting to God’s Word, contained in the readings and liturgy. It is taking part in the teaching of the word during the sermon and then later in bible class. It is confessing our faith together through the creed. And it is receiving forgiveness of sins through the reception of Jesus body and blood during the Eucharist. Being part of the body of Christ is not a passive experience. Faith is active. It involves fellowship, it involves giving comfort, it involves listening and acting. And it involves receiving strength and support from the people you interact with in church. None of these things can be done effectively, isolated behind your screen. It takes stepping out of your comfort zone, and carefully rejoining your life. Fear is a powerful emotion. One that can push faith aside. Scripture speaks to fear in almost every book. In Matthew 6 Jesus says do not worry about tomorrow because tomorrow will take care of itself. Paul writes to Timothy "for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love". It is this spirit of power and love that brings us to gather together in church.

We would like to invite you back to where you have all the love and support you need to grow in faith and fellowship. If you have concerns or fears we would welcome the opportunity to speak with, and pray for, you. We invite you back to worship, and to share in Bible Study opportunities. All precautions have been taken. So, join us this Sunday and every Sunday to worship, learn, pray, and to become connected with and grow with us. Through worship, prayer and devotional opportunities our relationship with God is strengthened and sustained each day. You are invited to grow with us as we mature in our faith from the teachings anchored in the Holy Bible and our Lutheran heritage. We hope that you will join us and continue on the journey that will allow us to grow in faith bringing us closer to Jesus.

We will, of course, continue to stream our worship on zoom. All of the sign in information will be available in the announcement section of this website. And soon we will be providing audio of Sunday’s sermon under the info page of this website.
