Trinity Community Lutheran Church congregation was established in 1913 by Icelandic pioneers of Point Roberts. Point Roberts is located 30 miles south of Vancouver British Columbia. In 1920 a group of volunteers completed the sanctuary that has stood these 100 years, a symbol of Icelandic love of church and community. Now this iconic church, the sole church in Point Roberts, is in danger of collapsing.
The restoration to stabilize the church and retrofit a foundation is underway – but additional funds are urgently needed to meet the costs. This historic building is more than a church. It is the oldest landmark in Point Roberts and has developed an ecumenical membership that has flourished for over 100 years. It is the only concert hall, the emergency shelter for the Red Cross, a partner with both the Food Bank and Point Roberts Emergency Preparedness.
