Join us online or in person for worship!
The most recent changes in the CDC guidelines significantly changes our understanding of how to live with the Covid- 19 virus. One reality is that how we return to our “new normal” is going to look different for everyone. Children are not eligible for vaccines, many people may have special considerations, and teenagers are just beginning to receive the vaccines. It is up to everyone to assess the levels of risk they are willing to take.
To protect the health of our church community, we ask that everyone attending worship in person observe the following precautions:
· If you have cold or flu-like symptoms (even mild ones), please stay home. This includes individuals who are fully vaccinated. While the Covid-19 vaccine is 100% effective at preventing deaths, there are rare cases of vaccinated individuals contracting the virus.
· Masks are required for all people attending in-person worship.
· Social distancing of 6’ is required in the sanctuary.
· The congregation will refrain from singing.
· We will continue to livestream our worship on Sunday mornings at 11 AM at our church Facebook page @ Holy Trinity Memphis.
(The information we share here comes from the Centers for Disease control.)
While these are unquestionably fear-filled and uncertain days I invite you to join me in prayer with each other and our amazing God. Together, following the protocols from the CDC, (and even doing a bit more), we will find our way out of this. The pandemic is real and like anything else we face we are not alone. We have each other. Here at Holy Trinity Community Church, we are the difference.
You are invited to reach out to Pastor Rob at email@example.com with any pastoral needs, questions, comments, or concerns.
We believe that together united in our faith we are called to reach out and proclaim God’s unending love for all people.
To embrace the beatitudes and work tirelessly for the new heaven and the new Earth that our holy scripture keeps pointing us towards.
The dream of God, peace and justice flowing like a river, as revealed through Jesus for the love of all the world.
We believe Jesus didn't turn people away,
even those rejected by others.
We don't intend to either.
We are like a 'company of strangers,'
made family by the grace of God in Jesus Christ.
God welcomes all people.
God claims all people.
God loves all people.
If these words resonate within your heart join us in worship and ministry.
We are Holy Trinity Memphis. Together we are the difference.
Our common goal is to offer:
·A spiritual connection
·A place that affirms you & your family
·A place that values your questions & experience
·A place that makes a difference in the world

At Holy Trinity Community Church, every member is a minister of the church. We believe we are here to serve, not to be served. We embrace 5 core values. The Core Values of Holy Trinity Community Church are: Compassion, Inclusion, Liberation, Grace, & Faith in Jesus.
WE ARE A PEOPLE OF COMPASSION
We are ministers who embody the tangible love of a savior who fed the hungry, healed the hurting, & told us bluntly that what we did to the least we did to him.
WE ARE A PEOPLE OF INCLUSION
This is a value Jesus held. We believe Jesus came to include, not to exclude. All are welcome around God’s table.
WE ARE A PEOPLE OF LIBERATION
We seek to challenge all oppression. By embodying grace, we live out our liberation until we are all set free.
WE ARE A PEOPLE OF GRACE
We are people filled with joy & know the gifts of respect and acceptance because we believe God is gracious with us. With God, all things are possible. God can use us to transform the world for the better.
WE ARE A PEOPLE OF JESUS
We believe Jesus was the incarnation of God’s grace. Jesus resisted the status quo of oppression & showed us the way to be the abundant life God intends for all people.
THE MISSION OF HOLY TRINITY COMMUNITY CHURCH is to participate in God’s healing love by offering extravagant grace, radical inclusion and relentless compassion for ALL.
