TRANSFIGURATION LUTHERAN CHURCH (TLC) is a member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), a Christian denomination that shares a living, daring confidence in God’s grace. A church that is always being made new, and at the same time is deeply rooted in Scripture, Lutheran theology and Lutheran confession.
Before officially becoming Transfiguration Lutheran Church, the first worship service was held on November 4, 1956 at Westwood Elementary School, a few short blocks northeast of TLC's present location. On April 4, 1957 TLC was officially formed, with its name on the charter being “Evangelical Lutheran Church of the Transfiguration.”
Today, as then, TLC is a dynamic, welcoming community of faith. Members, newcomers and those who yearn to know God are invited to Gather in Grace, Grow in Faith, and Go Forth to Serve.
There's much more than can be read on our website. Please come visit TLC in person to experience and discover all that Transfiguration Lutheran Church is and can be for you and yours. In addition to worship services on Sunday and Wednesday evening, we have a variety of hospitality gatherings; special events like the blessing of the animals (your domestic pets), adult and youth retreats, knitting, walking, health awareness programs, and grief support. Select the Ministries button above for more details.
Worship at Transfiguration is an opportunity to experience God’s transforming presence. All are invited to gather to sing praise and offer prayers to the One who gives us life. We grow in faith as we listen to God’s word and join others at the communion table. And, we go forth from worship refreshed in spirit and ready to share ourselves with a world in need. Worship services are held on Sundays, Wednesdays and other religious commemorative days. Services include Holy Communion, Baptisms, a segment for children, and more. Nursery and Sunday School are also provided.
TLC offers a quality music curriculum steeped in the traditions of Lutheran church music while maintaining active and growing programs for all age levels within the congregation. TLC music programs include vocal groups and instrumental ensembles. Nearly every worship service at TLC is filled with the talents of one or more music groups. We are blessed with organ/piano accompaniment to the enduring beauty, appeal and power of our worship hymns.
YOUTH & FAMILY
Youth & Family ministries help provide dynamic leadership, visioning, and organization for TLC youth and family members. TLC encourages all to be disciples of Jesus through active participation in our programs that serve to strengthen relationships, faith, and grace within the family.
Children are offered wonderful opportunities to grow and develop spiritually, cognitively, emotionally, and physically. TLC's Early Learning Center and Children Ministries includes Sunday school and Vacation Bible School (VBS), along with Early Communion, Bible & Baptism classes, Milestone Ministries, nursery and much, much more.
TLC provides Young Adult ministries where faith and life merge in positive, exciting ways.
HEALTH & WELLNESS
Health and Wellness ministries and programs for care, encouragement and education through groups such as TLC Walkers, Quilters, Care Mail Crafters, Prayer Chains, Health & Fitness programs, and of course, much more! TLC has active Mental Health and Addiction Awareness teams too.
Volunteers are vital and TLC is dependent on volunteers to help keep the doors open. We need your and others' dedication to support the church. The most visible roles are ushers, greeters, children’s ministry and musicians. There are also many behind-the-scenes support ways to volunteer both at the church and in the community.
