A growing Rochester congregation that has been meeting in a school for the past two years could break ground on a new church complex as early as this spring.

However, the church hopes to first sell its existing buildings at 1300 10th Ave. N.E.

Trinity stopped holding services there two years ago and began meeting at Schaeffer Academy at 2700 Schaeffer Lane N.E. Those 10th Avenue buildings are being rented by two other local churches. There has been interest from potential buyers.
