You may be most interested in personal, spiritual growth and this church would love to help you do that. Or, you may be most interested in being part of a caring community, in finding friends. We are committed to caring for each other in the good times and in the hard times. You may be looking for ways to serve others in Richmond and beyond and Grace & Holy Trinity Church would be privileged to support you in that endeavor. You may be interested in all of these things and more. There is a place for you here.
All Are Welcome
All Christians are called to bear witness to the good news of God’s love and grace in Jesus Christ, through the power of the Holy Spirit. We are empowered for this witness through our covenantal relationship with God. Baptism initiates us into that covenant, marking us as Christ’s own forever and making us members of Christ’s Body, the Church. The Eucharist sustains us in that covenantal life and strengthens us to be Christ’s witnesses in the world. Regardless of who you are or where you come from we are glad you are here. We see people, not labels and in that spirit we invite everyone to share with us in Christian witness.
You will find people to welcome you. You will find great fellowship. You will find beautiful worship empowered by uplifting music and the Word of God expressed through scripture and in sermons. You will find opportunities to change the world for the better.
At Grace & Holy Trinity Church our mission is to be an inclusive, spirited, and Christ-centered urban church community that transforms lives.
Our vision is that every member will joyfully celebrate God’s love and share the transforming power of that love in the church, in the city, and in the world.
Our core values are:
- Seeking: We are each on a personal journey, seeking in community to understand God and what God is calling us to do.
- Serving: We serve God – both within and outside of Grace and Holy Trinity Church.
- Caring: We care about our neighbors and each other.
Our strategy is to embrace what God has placed around us, and strive to improve the life of each person we encounter. Our three main areas of focus are below including the name of the main staff contact person.
- Joining in the spiritual journey: Beth Melcher Davis and Carolyn Chilton
- Engaging young people: Mary Cay Kollmansperger and Paul Evans
- Breaking the cycle of poverty: The Rev. Kim Reinholz and the Rev. Bo Millner
We seek to make this mission a reality through a variety of ministries. Watch this YouTube video to learn about some of them, and please explore our website to learn more. Click here to read more about our new 2016 strategic plan.
Whether you are a guest, a new member or have been a member for some time, the clergy and other staff are always excited to talk with you about how you can be involved.
