In celebration of Holy Trinity's 60th Anniversary and the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, we will post photos every Thursday that showcase the colorful, fun, educational, and prayerful moments of Holy Trinity's 60-year history in Newington, NH.
In 1980, Holy Trinity renovated our church to become more energy conscious, installing several 8-foot-tall Kalwall water storage tubes in the Sanctuary (currently our Gathering Area). These tubes helped save the church on heating costs and provided a calming atmosphere for worship.
After our new Sanctuary was built, there was more to do, such as installing the new steeple & stained glass window, and setting up the pews. In addition, we have a photo of Rev. Dave Snyder in the ground-breaking ceremony.
At the February 1995 Congregational Meeting, 72 members approved the expansion of Holy Trinity's facilities. By December of that year, a brand new Sanctuary was built.
In 1977, Holy Trinity hosted a Fashion Show called, “What the Well-Dressed Person in 1979 wears from Morning Until Night.” Here are some of the funny and interesting photos from the event.
Please enjoy four photos of the Confirmation Classes with Holy Trinity's former Pastors: Rev. Allison Linne, Rev. Eugene Kreider, Rev. Frank Hanrahan, and Rev. Earl Weredelin.
Nearly 60 years to the date, the following photo is a look at the Bulletin on the first Holy Trinity Reformation Sunday, dated October 27, 1957. We apologize if parts of the liturgy may be hard to read, as the ink from the original printing has faded over time. We did our best to touch up a few parts to make it easier to read.
Please enjoy photos of a few congregational events at Holy Trinity in the 1960s.
We want to begin our weekly photo remembrance in the late 1950s & early 1960s when Holy Trinity was first built, including our building addition in 1962.
Before we begin our Photo Remembrance of the Week, it seems appropriate for us to recognize the work of Holy Trinity’s Historian, Marie Edin. Marie is one of our eldest and wisest members of Holy Trinity and she was one of the lucky few who attended Holy Trinity’s first service in Newington on June 14, 1959. She’s provided our congregation with amazing details about how Holy Trinity has grown over the last 60 years, even providing valuable insight that is currently featured in our 50th anniversary book: “A Look at 50 Years”. Copies of our book are available in the library and soon to be published on our webpage by the end of the year.
It’s been a blessing to see the history of Holy Trinity through the eyes of the photographers who took these photos, most of which we are unable to thank or credit personally. For anyone who has taken any of these photos and kept them in our building for safe keeping, I want to thank you for helping me to deliver joy to our church as we take stroll down memory lane. If you have any additional thoughts or details about these photos, please email Mark at the church office at firstname.lastname@example.org
