Transfiguration Lutheran Church welcomes all who seek to experience the joy of God’s love and grace. We welcome all because God welcomes all: people of every race, culture, sexual orientation, gender identity, and relationship status. Our unity is in Christ. Therefore we walk with each other through addictions, physical and mental illnesses, legal and socio-economic circumstances and other life challenges.

NAWAS INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL
Reformation Pilgrimage
~~~~~~~~~~
Join your hosts Pastor Ed and Dr. Rob Reid on a 12-day tour marking the 500th anniversary of the Reformation.  
The pilgrimage follows the steps of Martin Luther, through Austria, Prague and Germany where we will walk and witness sites important to the life of Martin Luther and the Lutheran Reformation.  The trip includes many opportunities for enrichment along the way. We plan a book study on the Reformation, some historical lectures, some lessons in speaking German, and some social gatherings as we prepare for our spiritual pilgrimage.

A Vision for the Future
By Pastor Ed  (other staff blogs can be found by clicking here)
For four straight weeks in January and February, well over 100 people shared concerns, hopes and dreams for this great church. We received excellent suggestions and ideas that are giving shape to an exciting vision for the future of TLC--a vision I believe the Holy Spirit is guiding and a vision I feel personally excited about and willing to give myself to. I hope and pray you will feel the same way.

The plan taking shape, one that you will hear more about over the next few months, involves solving our financial challenges in order free resources to un-leash ministry for God.

The first thing to accomplish is to secure our current level of ministry. Our operating budget will not sustain things as they are now. Unless we take action, we will not ad-vance ministry, but actually need to reduce it. However, with the plans we are now for-mulating we could not only secure all the great things we do now, but even begin to dream of new things, such as:

Provide a full-time youth minister to serve our youth and young adults to develop their faith and commitment to Christ;
Provide a half-time visitation/outreach pastor to visit the sick and homebound, to provide ministries for seniors, and to knock on the doors of those new in the area with a personal invitation—the most effective way to bring new people to a church;
Develop Small Group ministry and Stephen’s Ministry—a ministry that trains and teaches TLC members to provide pastoral care to fellow members;
Launch a variety of new initiatives such as:
*A joint music program connecting children from TLC and ELC;
*An ESL program giving language tutoring services to Westwood Elementary to help immigrant families catch up with English and connect them with TLC;
*Develop further outreach to the recovering community who are hungering and thirsting for a deeper connection with God through ministry that connects them with the Lutheran concept of “pure grace.”

As we look forward to celebrating 60 years of ministry this year, let’s make this a defining moment for TLC, a moment when we took a step of faith, a moment when we decided to do more, not less, a moment when we committed ourselves to secure the fu-ture of this great church for years to come.

I want to say a personal thank you to all who took the time for the meetings and gave us feedback. There have been enthusiastic and constructive ideas raised and I look for-ward to addressing them. I commit to always doing my best and working to improve parish life at TLC with God’s help.

I look forward to the exciting things God is doing through us here in the days ahead.

God bless you and God bless TLC!
