Trinity Presbyterian Church was commissioned by Covenant Presbyterian in July of 1996. In Fall of that same year, ten families began meeting together in each other’s homes, forming what we would now call the “core” of the beginning of the church.
By January of 1997 that group began services on Sunday mornings in the Chamber of Commerce building on Lake Morton. Within months, they needed a bigger space and moved their Sunday service to the Tuesday Music Club on Success Avenue.
From there the chain continued to the Sorosis Building, then to Florida Southern and then to Lakeland Christian. The second to the last move was from renting at Southern to renting the Lake Wire Assembly of God, owned by the City of Lakeland.
Finally, the main building of the old First Baptist of Lakeland campus became available for sale in 2002. The building at 301 North Florida Avenue has become home to Trinity.
