For more than five years, Anthony Freddura has served as a senior business systems analyst at MultiPlan, Inc., in Massachusetts. Anthony Freddura balances his professional activities with his commitment to Grace Chapel, a nondenominational Christian church in Lexington.

Grace Chapel offers a number of programs and growth opportunities for congregants, including the Plug In project. Described as an instrument for life change, Plug In involves 10 weeks of small group discussion, personal reflection and study, and faith in action. The program is designed to help participants build their relationship with God and implement faith in their daily lives.

During the Plug In program, participants must engage in a minimum of eight of the 11 group sessions and set aside time every day for personal reflection to connect with God. Plug In participants also are required to support an outreach opportunity, join a focused prayer experience, participate in the commissioning/celebration evening, and complete a three-month serving opportunity. According to Grace Chapel, Plug In is perfect for long-time Christians and those new to the faith.

Overview of the Grace Chapel, By Anthony Freddura

A non-denominational church, Grace Chapel has campuses in Lexington and Wilmington, Massachusetts. It was founded in 1948, when its total congregation was only a few households. Today, approximately 3,000 people go to Grace Chapel each Sunday.

The Grace Chapel puts forward several beliefs. For example, it believes that the Bible holds the highest authority in all matters concerning Christian faith and practice. It also believes that God created all people and that people have alienated themselves from God, and it is now time to reconcile.

An active part of the Greater Boston community, Grace Chapel provides numerous programs aimed at helping others. It offers financial counseling, and it played an integral part in the development of the church partnership network, Greater Things for Greater Boston. On a global scale, the church also conducts several mission trips each year.

About Anthony Freddura: Mr. Freddura participates in many of the volunteer programs offered by Grace Chapel, including the monthly SoulFood program, which supplies food and clothes to underserved members of the Boston community.
