Founded in 1845, Trinity is located in one of the older settlements of Allegheny County and still bears the word “German” in its Charter name as well as on the inscription on the front of its church building. The church was born when the Reverend Michael Schweigert sought out area Lutherans and organized them into a congregation. The treasurer’s report of 1901 showed an expenditure of $3 to repair the stable in which the horses were kept during services.
The historic brick church stands as a symbol of strength and conviction of the faith of past and present members. Members today cherish their historic and religious traditions of spreading the good news of Christ and reaching out to the community in love.
The Kuskusky Path
The Kuskusky Path, used by hunters, traders, militia, warriors, war captives and diplomats in the 1700s, is located at Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church. The Native-American path connected the Delaware Indian community at Kuskusky, now New Castle to Fort Duquesne/Fort Pitt, a major trade center. A historical marker was dedicated on August 24, 2008.
A native of Nebraska, Pastor Jennifer received her masters of divinity in pastoral ministry at Luther Seminary in Minnesota. Reverend Fuhr served in ministry for 12 years before coming to Trinity in 2016, most recently as Associate Pastor of Lord of Life Lutheran Church in The Woodlands, Texas, a suburb of Houston.
