About Trindle Spring Lutheran Church

Trindle Spring Evangelical Lutheran Church has a long and enduring history that traces its roots to a time when Pennsylvania was still a colony of Great Britain. Founded in 1765, the church came into existence eight years before the Boston Tea Party and eleven years before the signing of the Declaration of Independence.

The name of the congregation is derived from a spring found on land settled in 1728 by William Trindle, a Scotch-Irish Presbyterian. William Trindle, a tailor and trader, was later appointed tax collector. He was a leader in the growing community who was also appointed lieutenant in recognition of his efforts to avert difficulties with local Indians.

The promising agricultural lands surrounding Trindle Spring attracted German Lutherans and German Reformed Calvinists. William Trindle gave to these settlers lands to be used as a burial ground. This land is now the southern portion of our cemetery. After the land grant from William Trindle, a log building was erected which served as both church and school. A brick building was finally erected in 1823.

The two story brick building was renovated in 1876. In 1907 the congregation installed pews for the first time. This renovation also saw the addition of stained glass windows and a steeple bell. Further renovations were made in 1951 when an addition was placed on the north side of the building to house a fellowship room, a kitchen and a stage area. Unfortunately the 1951 addition was extensively damaged during hurricane Agnes which ravaged the central Pennsylvania area in June of 1972.

The current educational building was constructed in 1975. This building was the first step in the construction of a new fellowship hall and sanctuary. The new construction was completed in 1993 with the dedication of the current sanctuary. Since that time, the congregation has continued to grow and serve the community. It is with our abiding faith and dedication to the Word of God that we continue to carry on the traditions begun over two centuries ago. As a congregation we know that we stand on the foundation of faith the people who came before us built. On that solid foundation we continue to build strong ministries, relationships, and look for what God is doing in our midst right now.
