Lunch Bunch

Wednesdays at 11:30am

The Lunch Bunch is an opportunity to get together with friends at least once a month with a spirited talk and meal. It will be informative and fun as we discuss related topics that help us grow in our faith together.  Please bring a brown bag lunch or you can place an order with us for a sandwich from Deli South (Just call or email the church office). We hope you can join us for these spirited times together.
Our discussion Topic:
The History of the Bible
We know that the Bible covers 4,000 years of history with God. There are stories that go back to the beginning of time. There are stories that chronicle important times in Hebrew history. There are stories of Jesus and letters regarding his continual influence. And that has been the way it has been for 2000 years.  Where did the Bible come from? How was it put together? What do we know about the authenticity of the stories and history? Are there any calibrating sources? We will take a look at the origins of the bible and how the Bible became a book of sacred writings that is the backbone of our faith.

Meals for Mobile Hope

Mobile Hope is a local non-profit that supports children and young adults (24 years of age and younger) who are precariously housed, homeless, or at risk, living in Loudoun County. They work to change the future one child at a time, providing clothing, food, hygiene items, medical referrals, housing referrals etc. 

We will be cooking meals to be served on the Mobile Hope bus, which travels to Leesburg, Sterling, St. Louis, Middleburg, Lucketts, Lovettsville, South Riding and Purcellville.  We will distribute our meals at the Purcellville location ON THE 2ND WEDNESDAY OF EACH MONTH.

Music Program News

“Next to the word of God, the noble art of music is the greatest treasure in the world.”

–Martin Luther

The treasure of music is something that lasts a lifetime. Time and again I have observed within the church or working in nursing homes, that music sticks with us. It becomes part of who we are. In the words of Helen Kemp, an icon is church music, stating in one of her warm-ups: “Body, mind, spirit, voice; It takes a whole person to sing and rejoice.” Perhaps this is why the words of hymns, often taken directly from scripture, stay with us long after many other capabilities have gone.

We invite you, all of you, to come and join us in singing and rejoicing! We have choirs for ages Kindergarten through adult. What you sing-will stick with you, and you will have a lot of fun!

Children’s Choir – Grades K-5: Starts September 20th and meets every Wednesday from 6:15-7:00 PM as part of Wednesday Night, LIVE!

Youth Singers – Grades 6-12: Starts September 20th and meets every Wednesday from 7:15-7:45 PM as part of Wednesday Night, LIVE!

Chime Choir – Grades 6 through adult: Starts September 20th and meets every Wednesday from 7:45-8:15 PM as part of Wednesday Night, LIVE! (No experience necessary!)

If you can’t make mid-week practice, we can work something out. We have great music lined up for 2017-2018, including for a November Hymn Festival Sunday service. Sing every week, or just on occasion, as you can. Soloists welcome! If you have some special musical offering, and/or would like to involve friends, school- or work-mates in some Sunday music, please contact us. Thanks in advance, for your talent and good will.

Revitalizing Youth Ministry

Revitalizing our Youth Ministry

The leaders of Holy Trinity Senior High Youth Ministry are excited to revitalize our programs and support for our students in High School. We look forward to develop activities, retreats, and yes, a schedule of Summer mission trip programs. In the Summer of 2018, the ELCA will host the ELCA Youth Gathering in Houston Texas. We are excited to present this possibility and numerous means to fund-raise and engage this important faith development trip. We have the support, the excitement, and the resources. All we need is you. So, come on out and re-connect with the other students and share the fun of our 2017-18 Youth Ministry.

And the ELCA Youth Gathering Houston, Texas

Can you say Houston? Put some golf balls in your mouth and as low as you can slur it out! Do you know who Houston is named after? Can you name the Houston baseball team, football team, basketball team, and the women’s soccer team? Houston is a grand city; it is a big City. It features Texas barbeque and Yee Haa Rodeos. This is the city of the 2018 ELCA Youth Gathering. The Gathering is an incredible adventure with fun, new experiences, faith filled events, extravaganzas, and a state of the art professional nightly presentation of popular key note faith filled speakers. It is quite a once in a lifetime experience. We would like to have every youth that is eligible to go be able to go and we will work hard to minimize the expense of the trip to the families and youth.  Contact Pastor for more information!

Backpack Buddies

The Backpack Buddies partnership between Holy Trinity and Frederick Douglass Elementary School is a continuing project working to keep children fed throughout the school year.
Our Backpack Buddies shopping cart is ready for your donations, and can accept them at any time. These items are delivered to Frederick Douglass Elementary during the school hours. We are looking for more people to join who can be part of our delivery team. Please contact Pat Bailey at for more information. Adding one or two items to your shopping list helps to feed the hungry children in our community. An insert with the needed foods is on the poster next to the shopping cart.
Childhood hunger is a very real problem in Loudoun County and Holy Trinity CAN make a difference each week with our food donations.

Project Promise

150 school kits assembled at HTLC on Thursday. Our VBS offering project is complete except for delivery! Kits will be sent to Project Promise through Lutheran World Relief.
