ADVENT AT TRANSFIGURATION

We hope you will join us at Church of the Transfiguration for worship, service, and community during this holy season of hopeful expectation!

CHRISTMAS FLOWER AND MUSIC OFFERINGS

Your gifts in memorial or thanksgiving are invited to adorn the church with Christmas flowers and provide glorious music for our Christmas services. You can also find envelopes in the pew boxes or on the bulletin table. Please return your envelope with the appropriate designation in the offering plate at any service or to the church office no later than Monday, December 18 by 12:00 p.m. This will ensure that your dedication will be included in our insert during our Christmas services.
