About Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church
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.
