Trinity United Methodist Church is a historic church located in Bristol, Virginia, that was established in 1856. The original church building was destroyed during the Civil War, and a new building was constructed in 1867. The church was later expanded in the early 20th century with the addition of a Sunday school and fellowship hall. Trinity United Methodist Church has a long history of community outreach and social activism, including involvement in the Civil Rights movement. The church has also been a cultural center for the Bristol community, hosting a variety of concerts and events over the years. Today, Trinity United Methodist Church continues to be an important religious and social institution in the Bristol area.
Trinity UMC's steeple suffered from very heavy storm damage. The metal steeple was ripped apart as were the louvers below. The church asked us to replace the roof with like and kind, but they also asked if there was anything we could do to make it look better than that original white aluminum. We gave them an option to replace it in copper. They used their insurance money and paid for the upgrade to replace it with copper, and the added embellishment of gold leaf on the cross.
The church and members were ecstatic with the final result.
