Life Together at HTLakeview

Do you need a spiritual re-set? Are you not sure what you believe anymore? Did you grow up in a conservative denomination and haven’t fully integrated a new kind of faith and practices? Have you felt estranged from organized religion yet sensing a desire for more depth in your spiritual life? Would you like to learn more about Holy Trinity, Lutheranism, and the ELCA? 

Maybe one or more of those describe you. Life Together is a safe place to explore your spiritual questions with other seekers. We will talk about the Bible, liturgy, sacraments, sin, salvation, other religions, and other challenging topics.

Join us for our first informational meeting on Sunday, November 17 from 9:15-10:45am. For more information or to RSVP contact Pr. Craig Mueller (cmueller@htchicago.org) or Beau Surratt (office@htchicago.org).

Anti-Racism Initiative Kickoff Forum

The weekend of September 28-29 will mark the beginning of Holy Trinity's 2-year partnership with the Antiracism Team of the Metropolitan Chicago Synod of the ELCA. Through this partnership, Holy Trinity will work with a leader from the Synod Team to discern and enact a plan for the future. What does it mean to do the work of dismantling institutional racism in our church? The Synod Team describes the process as follows: "Challenging racism requires us to look beyond individual acts of prejudice towards the systemic barriers that marginalize members of our family; barriers embedded in our policies and procedures, in our faith tradition, practices and beliefs." A forum will follow HTLoop Worship on Saturday, September 28 and HTLakeview worship on Sunday, September 29 and we will make a committment as a congregation to this work on Reformation Sunday, October 26/27.
