Trinity United Methodist Church
Trinity United Methodist Church has been a part of Lafayette since 1824 when initial meetings were held in a log cabin. 2019 marks the 150th anniversary of the current sanctuary, and it was that year, 1869, that the church was officially given the name Trinity. Trinity’s building is home to many beautiful architectural features including stained glass windows by world renowned, local artist Edna Browning Ruby. Numerous upgrades, remodeling and building projects have happened at the church since then to further Trinity’s vision of growing in love and service through relationships with God and community.
