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”

WE TRY TO FULFILL

Disciples of Jesus Christ in the World

We are an Episcopal Church

The Episcopal Church is part of the world-wide Anglican Communion which traces its roots back to the Protestant Reformation in 16th-century England.  We offer ancient liturgy that speaks to modern people.

Accepting and Inviting

All are truly welcome at Transfiguration Church.  There are no exceptions.  We are a diverse group of Christians who enjoy fellowship with one another, and we find our differences to be a source of strength.  Our faith community has room for people of all ages, abilities and ethnicities.  We are a mix of liberals and conservatives, straight and gay, bisexual and transgendered, married, single, divorced, and widowed.

Worship, Witness & Service

Our lives as Christians are nurtured and shaped by the common worship that we share from week to week.  On Sundays we offer a Rite II Holy Eucharist at 8:00 am and 10:15 am in which we gather to praise God, listen to Scripture, pray for ourselves and others, and partake of the bread and wine of the Eucharist.

1980

First Small Group Is Born

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.

1981

Mission is Named

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.

Decision To Build A Church

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

Our New Home Gets It's Look

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.
