HOLY TRINITY COMMUNITY CHURCH HAS SUSPENDED IN PERSON WORSHIP SERVICES UNTIL THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL SAY IT IS SAFE TO DO SO DUE TO THE COVID-19 HEALTH CRISIS. WE WILL LIVE STREAM WORSHIP EVERY SUNDAY AT 11 AM ON OUR CHURCH FACEBOOK & YouTube pages @ HOLY TRINITY MEMPHIS.
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
Come & join us in worship, attend one of our many church events, & contact our pastor, Rev. Rob Van Ess, (firstname.lastname@example.org or 901-320-9376). We look forward to welcoming you home at Holy Trinity.
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.
We are posting a 5 Minute Meditation 3 times a week on our church Facebook page. Would you like to post a 5 min. meditation? Please contact Pastor Rob at email@example.com
We will live stream worship every Sunday at 11AM on our church Facebook and YouTube pages: @ Holy Trinity Memphis. Once posted these videos will be able to be found and replayed or shared from our church Facebook and YouTube pages.
Our Wed night bible studies will resume with a 6 week study called Homosexuality & the Bible, (Feb 24 - Mar 31 @ 7 PM). Each week Pastor Rob will walk us through the "clobber passages," aka "the texts of terror" in the Hebrew and Christen testaments that are most often weaponized against LGBTQIA+ people. Together we will reclaim our holy scriptures and reaffirm God's love for ALL. While not needed, our guide for this study is The Handbook: A Quick Conversation Guide to What the Bible Does and Does Not Say About Homosexuality.
Please contact Pastor Rob at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to add something to our prayer list, or to request someone to join you in prayer.
