Transfiguration faces an exiting year. Our property is undergoing an amazing upgrade that will benefit the community.
While our ski slope will be gone, and our popular Snow Day will have to be modified, the rest of the year we won’t have to rest on the church steps after the climb up from the parking lot, benefiting so many with physical challenges. Instead, we will have a beautiful outdoor area to compliment our fabulous, remodeled church. The inside of the Parish Hall will receive a long overdue face lift that will accommodate community events. And most importantly, our school will be reconfigured to better meet the needs of today's families.
Of course, we will face challenges as we go through this transformation, but our church community has a history of meeting more difficult transitions and thriving. However, we all must be aware that transitions can create stress, so caring for each other will be even more important. We will be dealing with the inconvenience of on going construction, disruption in our regular routine, and potential disappointments. Our spiritual community will carry us through.
We will meet these challenges as a caring community, helping each other through the stresses and listening to everyone's concerns. The end result will be a beautiful place to celebrate and grow our wonderful community.
If you have issues or concerns as we go through this transition, please reach out to me or other members of the vestry by emailing the parish office at firstname.lastname@example.org
