Transfiguration Lutheran Church, located at 110th Street & France Avenue South in Bloomington, Minnesota, welcomes all who seek to experience the joy of God’s love and grace. We welcome all because God welcomes all: people of every race, culture, sexual orientation, gender identity, and relationship status. Our unity is in Christ. Therefore we walk with each other through addictions, physical and mental illnesses, legal and socio-economic circumstances and other life challenges.
TRANSFIGURATION LUTHERAN CHURCH (TLC) is a member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), a Christian denomination that shares a living, daring confidence in God’s grace. A church that is always being made new, and at the same time is deeply rooted in Scripture, Lutheran theology and Lutheran confession.
Before officially becoming Transfiguration Lutheran Church, the first worship service was held on November 4, 1956 at Westwood Elementary School, a few short blocks northeast of TLC's present location. On April 4, 1957 TLC was officially formed, with its name on the charter being “Evangelical Lutheran Church of the Transfiguration.”
Today, as then, TLC is a dynamic, welcoming community of faith. Members, newcomers and those who yearn to know God are invited to Gather in Grace, Grow in Faith, and Go Forth to Serve.
