About Holy Trinity

A Rich History Of Service In The Community

Holy Trinity celebrated our 60th anniversary in 2012, and has a wonderful history of service in our community through many organizations including MUST Ministries, Habitat for Humanity, Blessings in a Backpack, Angel Tree, and more.

After a move from the original location near the “Big Chicken” to its current building in Northeast Cobb, Holy Trinity has grown both physically and spiritually to our current size of around 500 people worshipping each weekend.

The ELCA’s story is both ancient and timely. It’s a story of a powerful and patient God who has boundless love for all people of the world. It’s a story that brings deep meaning, comfort and strength to a growing community of people who live in modern, often unsettling times. Learn more about our beliefs—and become a part of this faith story. All are welcome!
