Vision and Mission

We are on twin, synergistic journeys—the journey inward and the journey outward.

We pursue biblically based, grace-enabled spiritual transformation in order to be the cooperative friends of Jesus who, for the sake of others, live constant lives of creative goodness through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Todd Hunter’s New Book: Our Character At Work

myholytrinity-Our_Character_At_Work-Todd_HunterMany leaders need to win (and thus humiliate others), need to get their way (and thus threaten others), need to be seen in a positive light (and thus blame others), need to give good news to those they report to (and thus intimidate others into fudging reports when necessary), and need to be seen as powerful in every setting (and thus speak condescendingly to others). Our Character at Work demonstrates that leadership is more effective and ethical when done in servant-led ways.

Holy Trinity: Adult Discipleship
Sundays, beginning September 11
9-9:45 am

The vision of Holy Trinity church has been to take transformation into Christlikeness into the public worship of the church. Everything we have done, if we are thinking straight, has been put through that grid: liturgy, art, teaching, music, worship, youth and children, retreats, etc. Now, we want to take the next step by launching an adult discipleship group on Sunday mornings. It will not be a reading group, per se, but will consist of conversations rooted in the work of Dallas Willard’s Renovation of the Heart. Todd helped edit this book with Dallas and has taught the books’ concepts many times. Beth too is familiar with Renovation through her studies and her work as a spiritual director.

Todd and Beth will lead these weekly discussions beginning Sunday, September 11. We will meet at 9am in Scott Building, Rm. #130 . We will be done in time for prelude at 9:45. Please receive this notice as a warm invitation to come and participate-we look forward it!

We have Willard’s book on sale for $10 on our resource table. Or you can purchase your own.

Service Times

9:45 AM – Coffee & Community on the Courtyard
Quiet Musical Prelude in the Chapel

10:00 AM – Worship Service
