History of Trinity

Trinity is made up of two congregations who merged in 1966.  The two churches were Brudertal and Johannestal.  Brudertal was made up of immigrants from South Russia and West Prussia.  Johannestal was from Polish Russia near Warsaw.  These congregations were located 4 miles apart in the country.  

 

Upon the creation of the Marion Reservoir, Brudertal needed to relocate.  Much of the population had moved to town, so it was decided that these two churches would merge and build at the west edge of Hillsboro and name it "Trinity Mennonite Church."  The first worship service together was on May 22, 1966.

 

Over the years more and more people have left the farm to find work in urban settings.

With new church plants starting in town, members were drawn away from Trinity to join these new ventures.  Members also transfered to the home churches of their spouses.

 

Currently the congregation is the spiritual home of 53 people.
