Size:  1 reel of microfilm


Trinity Church was established in 1957 as a mission of the Evangelical and Reformed Church. A merger between the Congregational Christian Churches and the Evangelical and Reformed Church was consummated in 1961. This congregation became a part of the new national body, the United Church of Christ, and assumed the title Trinity United Church at that time. The congregation was unable to establish the stability necessary to sustain its operation. On November 15, 1970, the membership approved a motion for dissolution. On January 1, 1971, Trinity United Church was dissolved.


This collection consists of the records of Trinity United Church, Lincoln, Nebraska, arranged in three series: 1) Consistory minutes, 1957-1968; 2) Correspondence, 1969-1970; and 3) Printed matter.

The consistory minutes are the minutes of the church council. The correspondence relates to the congregation’s operational problems and eventual dissolution. The bulk of the material details the administrative conduct of Trinity United Church and reflects the problems encountered by the congregation during its fourteen year history.

This material was loaned for microfilming by the Nebraska Conference, United Church of Christ, in July of 1974.

About History Nebraska
History Nebraska was founded in 1878 as the Nebraska State Historical Society by citizens who recognized Nebraska was going through great changes and they sought to record the stories of both indigenous and immigrant peoples. It was designated a state institution and began receiving funds from the legislature in 1883. Legislation in 1994 changed History Nebraska from a state institution to a state agency. The division is headed by Interim Director and CEO Jill Dolberg. They are assisted by an administrative staff responsible for financial and personnel functions, museum store services, security, and facilities maintenance for History Nebraska.
