Trinity Church, Watervliet: In 1832 the Rector of St. Paul’s, Troy, led services in a schoolhouse in West Troy, now Watervliet.  Trinity was incorporated in 1834.  In 1835 a building fund was started while they continued to use the schoolhouse. Two church buildings were destroyed by fire, the second in 1900.  The present church was completed in 1901.  By the mid 90’s Trinity had significantly declined.  In 1998 a permanent priest was assigned, a Deacon was added in 2006.  Trinity today is a healthy parish with multiple lay-led ministries, giving 15% of its income to Outreach. Trinity’s Mission is to be a community that:  “Worships God joyfully, Shares the Gospel of Jesus Christ faithfully, and serves ALL in need lovingly.”
