1869-2019: 150 years of Trinity
2019 marks the 150th anniversary of Trinity United Methodist’s historic church building. Trinity Methodist Episcopal Church was formed in 1827 and in 1869 the congregation completed the first portion of their current building (now the newly renovated GREAT Room). They also laid the foundation of the large “auditorium” (now our Sanctuary). During 2019, Trinity is planning events to celebrate the beauty of our historic structure and promote the continued and creative use of our space. The celebration is titled “Built to Last: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow.”
