Historical Sketch

The First United Brethren Church, Marion, Indiana was organized in 1887 in a hall at the corner of Nebraska and 5th Streets. In 1892 the church was relocated at Delph and 2nd Streets. The cornerstone was set August 6, 1893. The Church was then known as First United Brethren Church. In 1946 the Church merged with the Evangelical United Brethren Church. At that time the name was changed to Trinity EUB and in 1968 became Trinity UMC. A new sanctuary was built in 1986. Dedication and mortgage burning were conducted October 11, 1992.
