About Us & Our Mission
“We are a Christian community accepting and inviting all persons to share in worship, witness and service, as disciples of Jesus Christ”
Disciples of Jesus Christ in the World
In September of 1980, The Rev. George Quaterman (of Trinity Episcopal Church in St. Charles), met with a group of 18 Episcopalians to consider forming a second congregation in western St. Charles County. Bishop William Jones approved the new Mission and the first service was held on November 2, 1980.
It was at a special meeting after the service on April 5th that the group would officially be called Church of the Transfiguration. Having outgrown the personal homes of members, services were moved to Elder Court, a senior citizen apartment complex, where the altar was a covered pool table.
We quickly started to outgrow our new location and in July of 1983, a 3.4-acre plot of land was purchased in Lake St. Louis. Like Transfiguration, Lake St. Louis was a growing community.
1983 - 1985
While land was purchased in 1983, it was not until March of 1985 that a ground breaking ceremony finally occurred. The Church of the Transfiguration was only the third congregation to call Lake St. Louis home by this time.
In November of 1985, the red doors at Church of the Transfiguration were first opened and we have continued to grow ever since.
