February 14 is FIGWORKS Day!

A year ago, the Outreach Steering Committee started this bi-annual event – timed to coincide with the reading of the Gospel account of the Transfiguration.

Figworks is a day of outreach when we actively commit ourselves to the work of seeing and addressing the needs in our community.

Here’s a list of service opportunities:

Kindness Rocks!

One message at just the right moment can change someone’s entire day, outlook, life!

February 14, 2021

Please join us in growing our kindness rocks garden at Transfiguration and help us spread kindness, positivity, and hope.
We need your help painting rocks with inspirational messages, sayings, words, and images.
On January 31 during the Children’s Formation hour, children will be charged with the mission to be the bearer of The Good News
and learn why & how to create kindness rocks.
Bring your created kindness rocks to the church and place them in our rock garden, located near the front doors, on February 14, which is not only Valentine’s Day but also designated as FIGWORKS Day.
