Contribution and Virtual Offering Plate
We are thankful to parishioners who pledge and are mailing their checks directly to the Transfiguration office, or have set up auto payment from your bank. It is very helpful that we continue income at this time as we seek to create connections to each other and maintain parish life. If you are not a pledger at Transfig, please do use our ‘virtual offering plate’ on the front page of our website to make a contribution to our work as you are able.

Happy Birthday

Rector Search Survey
The first part of our search process includes writing a parish profile, and in order to do that well, we need to get a sense of what the congregation believes are our current strengths and what vision we have for the future. We are very committed to listening to everyone who wants to share ideas and have been working hard to figure out the best way to do that despite pandemic restrictions. Please help us by filling out the following survey:


This is the first step in our listening process. We will be following up with opportunities for small group and individual conversations during coffee hours in February. Look for details and a schedule in upcoming announcements and Journey. Your thoughts matter to us!
