BRIEF HISTORY
The body of believers now known as the Trinity United Methodist Church has a rich history in the Frewsburg community that stretches over several decades and includes many denominations.
 
In 1978, Weidler UMC and Frewsburg UMC began joint worship at the Frewsburg United Methodist Church. Through excellent leadership and God’s grace and blessing Frewsburg United Methodist rapidly grew.
 
In 1997, Frewsburg UMC merged with Trinity Chapel to become Trinity United Methodist Church. The Frewsburg UMC building was utilized as a youth and young adult center (now the community ministry The Relief Zone, Inc.) and an addition was put on Trinity Chapel to accomodate the growth of the congregation.
 
The current worship facility is the outcome of that merger and construction effort. Trinity UMC has a rich history of Methodism, Evangelical United Bretheren, and non-denominational believers who were and continue to be dedicated to expanding the kingdom of God for His glory!
