From participating in events, joining us in worship, or donating to different ministries or programs, each decision has an impact that is felt and echoed throughout the community and the church's mission of serving God.
Global Mission Gift Fair
GLOBAL MISSION GIFT FAIR
"Alternative Gift Giving"
This is an annual event that benefits local and international projects for people and communities in need through “alternative gift giving”, such as school supplies, teacher training, medicine, honeybees, or livestock. Gifts assist individuals and families in places as diverse as India, Africa, and South America. Donations can be self-initiated or made on behalf of friends, family, or loved ones.
Reaching others through song
Our diverse music ministry is intended to inspire hearts, inform minds, uplift spirits, and glorify God. From congregation-sung hymns, our talented adult choir, solo musicians, guest singers, or Holy Trinity's classically-trained organist (one of the very few on the Florida panhandle), we literally have something for everyone to enjoy. Using our church-owned bells, we have occasionally even had a bell choir that energizes music in a new and exciting way.
