People of Transfiguration

Our Dedicated Altar Guild

Today’s church members include “cradle Episcopalians”, new churchgoers, and participants from many other religious traditions.  There are several three-generation families within our Transfiguration family.  Where there is diversity in points of view, parishioners are united in their desire for worship in their lives.

Our members are committed to a faithful quality of worship with an emphasis on thoughtful sermons, wonderful music and liturgy centered around the Eucharist.  Parishioners take an active role in the worship service, serve on committees, and respond positively to various challenges.

Currently, the Children and Youth Committee is the driving force of many of our social events.  Some of our past events include Games Night, an evening of fun playing all sorts of board and other games; the Transfiguration Coffeehouse, where Leach Hall is transformed into a performance space–with candle-lit seating and a stage–for a variety of musical performers from the congregation.

 

Working Together

 

Three Generations in our Transfiguration Family

 

An annual favorite is our Church Picnic, a cookout held after our 10:00 a.m. service on the church lawn at the end of the Church School year.

 

The Green Team at Work

 

We host church work days where members spend their time helping with a variety of church activities such as gardening, decorating, etc.  We also have events featuring special presenters, musical groups, and speakers on different topics.  This past fall there was a wonderful presentation on herbs, which was also a fundraiser for our Green Team.

While we are small in size, we represent nearby communities from Alsip to Homer Glen, from Frankfort to Downers Grove.  Parishioners come from within a 15 mile radius, including most of the surrounding towns and villages of Southwest Chicago.
