A Brief History of Trinity Presbyterian Church
Desiring to establish an outpost Sunday School and church in the Middletown area, Trinity Presbyterian Church was as an off-shoot of Harvey Brown Presbyterian Church. Early on, arrangements were made to rent the Middletown Woman’s Club, which would serve as a temporary location for the new church.
Trinity Presbyterian Church, the name chosen for the congregation, held its first worship service on October 27th, 1957, with approximately 50 people in attendance. On May 11th, 1958, the Presbytery granted permission for Trinity Presbyterian to become an officially organized church with 56 charter members. As the commitment and interest in this young church grew, a permanent location for Trinity Presbyterian Church was being researched. On July 1st, 1958, ten lots in Blue Ridge Manor on Shelbyville Road were purchased by the Louisville Presbytery. This would become the new and current location of the
Trinity Presbyterian congregation. Finally, on December 6th, 1959, the new buildings were dedicated, and the Trinity family became a lasting location whereby the love and glory of God could shine into the surrounding community.
From those days in the late 1950’s until the present, Trinity Presbyterian Church continues to be a growing church, both in size and stature. And by the grace and goodness of God, we are blessed to know the truth of the Apostle Paul’s parting encouragement in Romans 15:13…
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him,
so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
