On October 4, 1893, a group of Swedish immigrants chartered together to form a new church, and began to collect money to build a building, which was then in East Orange, where most of them worked as domestics and construction workers. That church of Swedish-speaking newcomers who banded together to be one another’s family in a new world, has become the no-longer-so-Swedish Trinity Covenant Church at 343 East Cedar St in Livingston, which celebrates, on Oct. 6, 2013, its 120th anniversary. The church sold its East Orange building to move to its new quarters in 1954, about a decade after its worship services began in English, and in 1962 added a Sunday school and meeting room wing to the facilities. Today, the church is made up of folks who have been in America for generations, as well as others from all over the world. There are the elderly and the children, parents and teens, single and married, but the thing that has stayed the same over the years for this church is the sense that its members have become one another’s family, which is, they say, what is described when Jesus said, “Love one another as I have loved you.” (John 15:12) On October 6, Trinity will celebrate with a joyful worship service at 11 am, to be followed by a traditional “potluck luncheon” with time for remembrances, pictures, songs and fun. Former members have been invited back to join in, along with the Taiwanese Presbyterian Church which also meets in the building. The community is invited as well; please call the church office to RSVP, 973-992-4044.
