Go to content

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.

New member classes are offered several times a year to anyone seeking to join TLC and wishing to explore what it means to be a Christian. The New Member Class is taught in one session, usually on a Sunday afternoon. The class offers discussion about the foundations of our faith, the vision of our church, and offers time to ask questions about the church and Lutheran traditions while building new relationships.

We welcome new members twice each year over a meal usually in the winter and again in early summer.
If you are interested in making TLC your church home, we encourage you to take part in a new member welcome. Members commit to worshiping regularly, supporting financially at whatever level is appropriate for them, and sharing of themselves through volunteering time, talent and energy.
Membership is not about joining a club. TLC is a faith community shaped by the desire for authentic relationship and every person’s need for unconditional love. Becoming a member means taking a chance on giving and receiving in these ways. Might God be calling you into deeper relationship?  Please contact Pastor Arthur if you are interested in learning more about TLC Membership amurray@tlcmn.com 952-884-2364 ex. 13

This is a great option for those who worship at more than one church or can’t be at TLC in person as much as they would like. Associate members includes those who worship via livestream. Please contact Pastor Arthur if you are interested in learning more about Associate Memberships: amurray@tlcmn.com 952-884-2364.

Please come visit TLC! 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 (pending) 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.  

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 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 of brass, woodwinds, handbells, guitars, and percussion. 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 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 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.
