Trinity Religious Temple Church
Trinity Religious Temple Church (2024 16th St NW) is nestled between several rowhouses on a block of the same shortly after you cross over U Street. Unless you're driving slowly down 16th or on foot, you'll totally miss it. The building is a bit run down and the day I photographed it, the oil man was there delivering a tank of kerosene. Aside from what I observed on the outside, I don't know anything nor could I find any information on the interwebs about this church.
My guess is, it's a break-off of a larger denomination, probably a bit pentecostal or charistmatic in its worship, and very specific in its dogma. But that's just a guess. Aside from the oil man, I've never actually seen anyone go in or come out of this building, so it's all a bit of a mystery really. But then, isn't religion in general?
