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.
