Updates regarding COVID-19:
Upon the recommendations of the Mission Presbytery Executive Presbyter, the CDC, and Mayor Nirenberg, the session has voted to suspend church gatherings through the end of March. We will not gather for Sunday worship or Sunday School. All church events, committee meetings, Bible studies, and outside group meetings will also be suspended. The church office will essentially be closed off.
While we are not able to physically gather for worship, we will be livestreaming our worship services on Facebook Live. On Sunday at 10:05, you can visit our church Facebook page and worship with us from the comfort of your own home (and you don’t even have to get dressed up!) If you are not able to tune in at 10:05, the service recording will remain on Facebook for you to view later. We will also try to post the video on our website.
We are entering uncharted waters as a congregation. However, I encourage you all to think of these changes as an opportunity for growth. We may find that recording and streaming our worship services is a great way to stay connected with our homebound members and friends that—under normal circumstances—are not able to join us on Sundays. We may also discover that our worship videos are a useful evangelism tool to reach our friends and neighbors online. I was encouraged to learn that our Tuesday morning Bible study is trying to organize a Bible study conference call. I would encourage our Sunday School leaders, cluster groups, Stephen ministers, and other fellowship groups to explore online meetings to stay connected with our church family.
I also want to remind you that just because we can’t meet in person, that doesn’t mean that we can’t give to the church. If you visit our website www.holytrinitypres.org you can find a tab on the top-center of the screen which explains our online giving options. It is remarkably easy!
The core of Christian community is fellowship. While online fellowship is a poor substitute for face-to-face gatherings, we believe that this is the most loving thing that we can do for our church, our neighbors, our community, our country, and our world.
The Greek word for church in the New Testament is ekklesia, which literally means “assembly.” Simply put, the church is not a building, but a community of believers that belong together. Just because we can’t meet in person at 16245 Nacogdoches Road, that doesn’t absolve us from our calling to be our brothers’ and sisters’ keepers. So, I am issuing a challenge to all our members to call (or Facetime) three or more church members this week. Check in with each other; ask what they are doing to stay busy; ask what books they are reading or what shows they are watching; ask if they need anything; ask if they need you to pray for them.
Be strong. Take heart. Hold fast to the faith. We will get through this together.
Due to the shelter in place order from Bexar County and San Antonio city officials, Holy Trinity Presbyterian Church will remain closed from Tuesday, March 24th until April 19, 2020, unless the order is extended. Sunday worship services will be streamed live via the HTPC Facebook page and will be uploaded to the website as soon as possible following the live video. The link at the top of this page will have the most current sermon videos available.
Please check back at the beginning of April for more updates.
Welcome, we are SO glad you are here!
Whether you are a member or visitor, we're glad God has led you to discover Holy Trinity Presbyterian Church, and we hope you already feel at home here.
Together we are called “to proclaim with joy the presence and love of Jesus Christ.” Each person has been given a gift to help us fulfill this mission. You can make a difference here.
Our church leaders do a wonderful job of managing the many programs and activities offered by the church.
We encourage you to seek opportunities for service through Holy Trinity, reflect on your gifts and interests, pray about where God is leading you, and contact someone to get involved. Your service will benefit Christ and His church, and also will be a step in your own spiritual growth. There are a variety of ministry teams that you may be interested in becoming involved with depending upon how you see your gifts can be used.
