Vision and Mission
We are on twin, synergistic journeys—the journey inward and the journey outward.
We pursue biblically based, grace-enabled spiritual transformation in order to be the cooperative friends of Jesus who, for the sake of others, live constant lives of creative goodness through the power of the Holy Spirit.
A time of fellowship, food, and spiritual formation in the context of community. Hosts will provide soup and participants are invited to bring appetizers, bread, salad, beverage or dessert.
We’ll be gathering in homes around town for the second session of Sacred Suppers: February 23, 24, 25, & 26 6:30 – 8:30 pm. Learn more

Ordination to the Diaconate
Sunday, February 26 at 9:45am
Holy Trinity celebrates Alan Fadling’s ordination to the Diaconate. We invite you to join us in the celebration at a pre-service ordination.
Alan and Gem Fadling have been a part of the Holy Trinity community for about 3 years. In the past Alan has been a mentor/trainer to Christian leaders. He is also the author of “The Unhurried Life” and out in a few months, “The Unhurried Leader.” Recently Gem and Alan founded a ministry called Unhurried Living, in which they work with Christian leaders around the world to rest deeper so they can live fuller and lead better. Alan has successfully completed the ordination process to the diaconate, and will be ordained Sunday February 26th. Please pray for Alan and Gem, their new ministry, and Alan’s work as a deacon.
Ash Wednesday Service
Wednesday, March 1 at 7pm
Needham Chapel, Vanguard University
Since early days Christians have observed with great devotion the time of our Lord’s passion and resurrection and prepared for this by a season of penitence and fasting known as Lent. The Lenten Season begins with Ash Wednesday. By carefully keeping these days, Christians take to heart the call to repentance and the assurance of forgiveness proclaimed in the gospel, and so grow in faith and in devotion to our Lord. Join Holy Trinity for our traditional Ash Wednesday Service on March 1 at 7pm at Vangurad’s Needham Chapel.
Parking passes are necessary on campus. Please pick one up after Sunday services on the Welcome Table or the evening of at the back of the chapel.
Wednesdays, March 1, 8 & 22 at 7 pm
Tom Wright has said: heaven and earth are not far removed from one another but rather are OVERLAPPING, INTERLOCKING SPHERES of God’s good creation. God is close (not far off in the distance) as close to us as our own BREATH itself. Breath is a part of the way God is present to us. As God said to Ezekiel: I will put breath in you, and you will come to life (Ezk. 37:6).
Many want connection with God, but so much seems aligned against it.
- Are you stressed? Anxious? Take a quiet mid-week retreat.
- Do you find the world’s problems overwhelming? Join us for some thoughtful considerations.
- Does human life seem increasingly ugly? Experience the beauty of S A C R E D, an evening chapel at Vanguard University for beauty, presence, and life.
Discover that God is as near to us as our own breath.

We are taking on a bit of a reading challenge: Gravity and Grace by Simone Weil. This collection of her writings may take a little more time to read through, so you may wish to begin your reading a little early.
April: The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah. A novel about two sisters, set in WWII France. Although it is long, I found it to be very fast reading.
