Trinity United Methodist Church History

The Trinity United Methodist Church of Bakersfield, CA was organized in 1893. It was originally established as Chesbro Memorial Methodist Episcopal Church. Over the years Trinity has had at least six names and has been located in four cities, yet has never left the corner of Niles and King Streets. The Church was condemned after the earthquake in 1952 and was remodeled and retrofitted at that time. Looking at old member rolls of Trinity, one can recognize many important names to our community.

In 2002 the Bethany and Trinity United Methodist Churches merged, beginning a new bilingual ministry to the quickly growing Hispanic population in this area. Pastor Mario Betancourt worked with the Hispanic Service. In October of 2004, Pastor Gabriela Perla became an Associate Pastor and took over the Hispanic Service. In 2009, Pastor Perla became the solo pastor for Trinity.

The congregation celebrated with two worship services for several years – one in English and one in Spanish. After some discernment about mission strategy, in 2016 the congregation decided to combine the services and use a bi-lingual approach. Even though the decision was widely discussed and unanimously supported, the strategy resulted in significant decline in worship attendance.

In September 2019, the Leadership team decided to refocus on Hispanic-Latino ministry and worship was conducted only in Spanish. Few remaining worshippers spoke English but remained committed to support the mission strategy of the congregation.

Even with trying many ways to reach out and grow, the congregation has dwindled down to an insufficient number to maintain the viability of the church.
