Trinity Baptists have made a lot of noise lately about their desire to build a new church in their hometown of Colorado Springs.
The church has been dormant since the death of its founding pastor, James T. O’Keefe, in June 2017.
Now, in the midst of the Presidential Election, a group of Trinity Baptists is taking to social media to make a big announcement.
“The Trinity Baptist Church has been in a hiatus for over four years,” Trinity Baptist Pastor Michael Smith wrote on Twitter.
“Today, the church has decided to take the next step towards the building of a new building and the opening of a Sunday School in our hometown.
I am pleased to announce that we will be opening our new chapel in our new town of Colorado.”
The building has yet to be formally named.
Totem poles and the flag of the local town of Aurora will be flown in front of the church, according to the tweet.
We will be taking the next steps towards building our new community center in our town of Denver.

“We want everyone to be able to attend the church services and see the building in the daylight, but we also want to make sure that everyone is safe and secure.”
For now, the new church will remain in a former warehouse in Denver.
For more information on the building, see the video below.
The new church, which is set to open in 2018, will be the first in a new era for the church.
Its construction will be funded by the Trinity Baptism Church and is being overseen by the Southern Baptist Convention.
