On Saturday, August 20, Holy Trinity Lutheran Church located in Fremont, will be celebrating 50 years in ministry. Past, present and future members will enjoy a day of celebrating and sharing memories of their time spent within this community of faith.
The first worship service was held on October 9, 1960 in the Center Theatre, 37411 Fremont Boulevard, Fremont, with 27 people in attendance, many of them visitors. Sunday school was held at the Pastor's home, beginning October 16, 1960 with seven children. The congregation was organized on March 26, 1961, with a "Letter of Call" given to the Reverend Eugene V. Holland and groundbreaking for the first unit of the church on August 20, 1961.
Holy Trinity has served the Tri-City area by supporting local ministries such as Abode Services, Tri Cities League of Volunteers, The George Mark Children's House, Meals on Wheels, Alameda County Food Bank and many other programs. Holy Trinity is pleased to be a member of the Fremont Chamber of Commerce, and participates in Fremont's Festival of the Arts.
The mission of Holy Trinity is "To care, to share, and to serve God," and the community. We have accomplished this for 50 years, and with the help of God, our congregation will continue to do this for another 50 years.
