Transfiguration Sunday celebrates the glorious revelation of God in Jesus Christ and Christ’s manifestation as the fulfillment of the law and the prophets. Jesus’ radiant appearance on the mountaintop evokes the devouring fire of the glory of the LORD at Mount Sinai (Exodus 24.17). Here, as at Jesus’ baptism, God claims him as a beloved child, in whom God is well pleased. (excerpt from the Presbyterian Mission Agency.)
For this celebration, we will join together in worship with warm greetings, prayer, music, a children’s talk, a reading from Luke 9:28-36 and the sermon “A Door Without a Handle.”
Transfiguration of Jesus is a mysterious event. It baffles the rational mind. But before you place aside this passage, here is something to hold on to: In the Christian faith is the daring affirmation that with the eyes of faith we can see beyond. Sometimes seeing is believing and at other times, believing is seeing.
Following the service we welcome all to join us in the Chalice Room next to the Sanctuary for refreshments and fellowship.
About Worship at Calvary
We welcome newcomers and visitors to join us for worship, which is traditional in style and contemporary in spirit, friendly and graciously welcoming, relaxed and engaging. The service includes contributions from members and clergy alike who lead us in a weekly expression of our faith with warm greetings, fine music, a children’s talk and sermons aimed at helping us understand how the teachings of the Bible can be applied to our lives today.
We look forward to seeing you on Sunday!
