Members of Trinity Congregational Church celebrated their 100th Anniversary with a special worship service this morning. Senior Pastor James DeWitt led the service, which was followed with a light lunch and the release of a hundred balloons by the children of the congregation.
The church has a rich history. It was built on the property of Solomon Wright, who puchased the land in 1837 and moved his wife and sons Benjamin, Solomon, Noodiah, Andrew and Jeremiah into what was then part of Walker Township and is now 4 Mile Rd. in Alpine Township. More history can be found at the Trinity Congregational Church Website. Special commemorative publications were made available to the members of the congregation. Pastor DeWitt praised the chairperson of the 100th Anniversary Committee, Wally VanHouten.
