What About Us?
Trimble Bible Church, an independent congregation of believers, is located on the east side of Illinois Route 1, four miles north of Illinois Route 33, in Trimble. Located in rural Crawford County, near Robinson, Illinois, the church was founded in 1871. Trimble Bible Church conducts two services each Sunday and two prayer meetings each week, and youth Bible club each Wednesday. Trimble Bible Church hosts an annual week of prayer, Vacation Bible School, and an outreach tent at the Crawford County fair.
In our church, we don't pass the offering plate. Instead, we place it at the rear of the auditorium. We sing from a hymnal, accompanied by a piano. Some folks dress up, but some don't. All messages are based upon Bible verses. The Sunday morning service lasts between 60 and 70 minutes and includes a time for announcements and prayer. Everyone is welcome!
