Biographical / Historical

The impetus of Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in Syracuse, New York was given by Pastor C. H. Kendrich of Clyde, New York, who, while attending an LCMS Eastern District Convention, learned that a family had moved to Syracuse and were interested in starting the first LCMS congregation in that city of 200,000 inhabitants. Three families formed the nucleus of the congregation in 1922. The first service was preached by Pastor Benke of Rochester, New York in September, 1922 to eight people. The first full-time pastor was Rev. Schumann, who was installed in August, 1923 with eight people present at the installation service. The congregation closed in 2014.
