Trinity City Church is now the owner of 1849 Marshall Avenue. Due to the outpouring of support from individuals and ministry partners, we raised enough funds to close on this property at the end of 2015. We are once again asking for you support in order to make one large replacement to our property.
raise the roof campaign
We're now entering the final phase of raising funds so that we can make improvements to the building. The key focus is raising enough funds in 2018 to replace the roof.
From now until the end of 2018, any donation you pledge or give will be doubled due to a generous matching donation of up to $30,000. That means if we're able to raise $30,000 then that amount will double to $60,000.
If you're ready to donate now, then click on the button below and select the "Raise the Roof Campaign."
If you plan to give later in 2018, then please let us know the amount you plan to give by clicking the "pledge" button below and filling out the form.
Partnering with us is not merely for the sake of a dry roof, but you're also contributing to what God is doing at this location as we use this building for urban mission. Here is more about our story at this location, and the opportunity it gives us and you.
Our story at this location
On October 10, 2010 a new church launched at 1849 Marshall Avenue. Trinity City Church spent two and a half years at this location. And though we made an attempt to purchase the building in 2012, we had to move on - one mile south to 1935 Princeton Ave. in 2013 - because the building sold to a different organization.
Fast forward two and a half years. In August of 2015, we found out that 1849 Marshall Avenue was going on the market again. Over the course of the next couple months, we made an acceptable offer to purchase this building. We celebrated our "homecoming" service on February 7, 2016.
Since the beginning, we had a vision to be physically present in these urban neighborhoods and among our neighboring campuses: the University of Saint Thomas, Macalester College, and Saint Catherine University. A high percentage of our congregation lives within five miles of this location, and we are making our home here in order to join God in the renewal of our neighborhood and campuses.
This building is more than just a facility - it represents to our neighbors and our local students that we’re here for the long haul. We’re not going anywhere, and we’re committed to serving this community with the gospel for generations to come.
A meetinghouse for our city
This building is in a strategic location, and our vision is not just to make a home for our church, but also to make a meeting place for the neighborhood. We’d like to remodel office space for non-profits working for the common good of our city; invite other churches or ministries to make use of the space with us; and open our doors for neighborhood or student groups to hold meetings and events. We want to see life happening here on Sundays and every other day of the week.
Give thanks to God with us for the great opportunity. May we use this building for his glory, and the good of our city and world!
