When you visit Trinity, we want you to feel welcome. From the message to the music, fellowship and activities, our goal is to glorify God and help one another strengthen individual relationships with our Lord and Savior.

"Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God."
-Romans 15:7

OUR History

Trinity Christian Church has had a long and colorful history. From its beginning in 1845 as the Trinity German Reformed Church, changing to Trinity United Church of Christ in 1952 and becoming Trinity Christian Church in the Spring of 2016, our Church has always been a cornerstone of Perry County Church History. As an independent church, Trinity Christian welcomes all believers of God’s Inspired Word.

Since our inception, we have been blessed to see generations pass through our doors to worship. Inspired by the Word of God, motivated by the ultimate sacrifice, and grateful for all that we have been given, our Church will stand steadfast in our commitments today, tomorrow and into future generations.
