Fifty years ago, a church was planted in Christiansburg, VA. The church plant became Trinity Baptist Church and a building was erected in 1974 on the current property at 1505 North Franklin Street. For 48 years the Gospel has been consistently proclaimed in this community and the ministry has been a faithful witness while maintaining integrity before God and men. Times have changed and so has our name, Trinity Community Church, to open our ministry to people from all backgrounds and to better reflect our mission to our community, but the Gospel message is the same.
In 2016, Trinity Community Church embarked on the exciting process of remodeling and updating our existing facility. Our goal has been to make our facilities more functional and attractive. This will make us more effective in doing the work of the ministry within our walls, while training our people to diligently do the work of the ministry outside our walls and among the people in our community, the New River Valley, even to the ends of the earth. This process began with the remodeling of our Nursery and Worship Center in the Fall of 2016 and continued with the remodel of our South Wing Classrooms in the Summer of 2017.
As we look forward to the next three years, ending in 2020, we have presented the next four projects in the completion of this vision. Projects 3 and 4 were completed in the spring and summer of 2018.

COMPLETED Fall 2016
Update of the Worship Center and Nursery. In the Worship Center, this project entailed the removal of pews and placement of chairs as well as some technology updates and new paint. The Nursery Project was a complete renovation of an outdated room that is now outfitted to more effectively minister to our young children.
COMPLETED Summer 2017
Remodel of Southwing Classrooms. This project involved a full-scale remodel of all the classrooms on the southwing of our building. It involved demolition of walls, new framing, cutting out windows, updating technology, drywall, new flooring, and furnishings.
COMPLETED Spring 2018
A reconstruction of a current building on our property into a fully functional Administrative Building. The result of this project will be a better equipped work space for our staff which will subsequently enable us to vacate our current office space, making available room to construct a church foyer and entryway (see Project 6 below).
COMPLETED Fall 2018
This project includes updates to our technology in the Worship Center and around the building as well as a much-needed protective sealant for our roof. Project 3 and 4 are our first step in accomplishing our most anticipated project: Project 6.
COMPLETED Fall 2020
Includes the remodeling of bathrooms and North Wing Classrooms to serve our Children's Ministry and will be similar in nature to the already completed remodel of the South Wing Classrooms.
Project 6 is planned to begin in 2021 and will be the most noticeable alteration to our building. Our goal is to open the front of the church to create a large welcome and gathering area where fellowship, encouragement, and discipleship can take place in a comfortable and much more conducive setting.
Thus far, these projects have been made possible by the faithfulness of the Lord to provide the finances, resources, and people needed to complete the work. As we move forward, we are praying and trusting the Lord to do the same yet again. We look forward with much anticipation to many years ahead of fruitful ministry together.
