The Founding of Trinity congregation dates back to the early 1860s. Although 1868 is regarded as the official date of its founding. The first minutes are dated October 6, 1863. The first house of worship was a small frame building on the corner of Cortland and Mechanic Streets.
The first pastor was the Rev. I. N. Wolf, a convert from Judaism. Under his leadership, the small congregation began to grow. In 1880 several lots on Wesley Street (our present location) were purchased for $51,000.00. The second church building was erected on this site and dedicated on November 20, 1881.
In 1872 a Christian Day School was organized. In 1905 a large school building next to the church was dedicated. After World War I, interest in the school lagged and in 1929 the school was closed. Thirty-two years later, in 1961, a new school building program was undertaken on McCain Rd. The school prospered and each year has seen a growth of enrollment. Three new classrooms were added in 1963.The present church building, Trinity's third house of worship, was dedicated in 1921 at a cost of $80,000.00. Along with the development of the day school was the founding of a daughter congregation Redeemer. Until the dedication of their first church building in 1966, the congregation worshipped in the school gym.
