Lord, how good it is for us to be here -- Matthew 17

Welcome

Welcome

Dear Friends,

“Lord, how good it is for us to be here.”  These words from the Gospel of Matthew are above the main entrance leading into our worship space to welcome all who come to worship and pray with the Body of Christ here at Transfiguration.  All are welcome to be here and this parish website is a reflection of this welcome.  “All are welcome” takes on a special significance as one gets to know the stories behind the ministries and programs presented described on this website.

The ministries and programs described are a powerful reminder of the diversity within Transfiguration faith community – from people to gifts.  This diversity strengthens our expression as the Body of Christ in the world and the sharing of our gifts blend together so the message of Jesus Christ comes alive as we continue our journey of faith, both here in our church buildings and out in the world.

“Lord, how good it is for us to be here” rings true here, and as the Body of Christ we bring that spirit of welcome out to our lives, and as we welcome our friends to Transfiguration.  

My prayer is that we are always aware the gifts we share are nourished as we come together to celebrate the sacraments and live as Christ in the world today.  It is my hope that we continue to show our gratitude for our blessings by always being available to one another as we continue our great journey … as brothers and sisters.

If you are new to the parish or visiting I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to the Transfiguration faith community; we work very hard to maintain a welcoming spirit and we want you to share in this spirit.

May we continue to be blessed by each other’s love and God’s love!

In peace and courage,

Fr. Mike Bausch
