Holy Trinity/Tampa Wins Inaugural Multicultural Award

Here's what we did...

Holy Trinity Lutheran Church is a congregation located in Tampa, FL near MacDill Air Force Base.  HTLC is a congregation that reflects all the beauty of God’s people.  Holy Trinity Lutheran School is a multicultural ministry of HTLC.  Founded in 1958, HTLS enrolls students in preschool (late twos, PK3, VPK 4) and Kindergarten-5th Grade. The school offers an enriching and rewarding academic education in a loving and safe Christian environment. We are committed to the moral, spiritual, intellectual, physical and creative enrichment of our students. Additionally, our students possess diverse academic interests and abilities and ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds, which we feel are important elements of a well rounded educational experience.  This school experience is accessible and affordable for all families in Tampa, FL.
