face shone like the sun, and His garments became white as snow.
A bright cloud overshadowed them and a voice from the cloud
said, "This is my Beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased;
listen to Him". When the disciples heard this, they fell
on their faces with awe. But Jesus came and touched them saying,
"rise, and have no fear". (Matthew 17)

Angel Tree Project Thank You!
There is so much need in this world, and our church
certainly helped ease things this Christmas. We adopted
4 families and two adults for the Holiday Cheer program
for our Angel Tree project. You were very generous
in your contributions and the recipients were very
grateful for your wonderful kindness. I wish you could
have shared in getting to know the members of the
families. Thank-you again.
Sincerely, Jane Wright, Terry Brooks
and the Mary and Martha Sisterhood
2019 SOCKTOBER DRIVE
Each year, Holy Transfiguration Church participates in the "Socktober"
sock collection drive that is organized within our local pan-Orthodox
Christian community by Saint John the Merciful Outreach Ministry.
In 2019, HTOC's sock collection box was overflowing, much the
same as in years prior! Socks for all ages and of all sizes
were delivered to Haven House, Families Together, Lost Sheep
Outreach Ministry, and Tammy Lynn Center to support our neighbors
in need in time for the cold season.
Thank you to all who participated in this act of service!
Over the last two months our St Nicholas
Fund has helped a single mother with two teenage children
pay her bills and avoid homelessness.
It has also provided toiletries and reading materials
to an inmate in a state correctional facility who is
seeking God in the Orthodox faith.
God bless you for your offering of
Another Successful Haven House Back to School Drive!
to you and your parish for all of the items you donated
back to school drive for Haven House. We exceeded all
of our goals and we could not have accomplished it without
help from your church. I dropped all the items off on
Wednesday and they were thrilled to see all of the donations.
Thank you so much again and have a great day."

Bowl of Caring
on Super Bowl Sunday:
This is a national movement to change the largest
day of football into the largest day of caring,
by giving 100% of proceeds to charity.
Once again, thank you for your overwhelming generosity
in supporting the Wrenn House in Raleigh. We even
surpassed last year's huge donation amount!
the IOCC to HTOC, "I cannot express to you enough how vital
your generous gift of support to IOCC's Hurricane
Harvey Response Fund has been. As the water receded,
assessments have determined that the storm damaged
at least 200,000 homes and destroyed more than 12,700
others in the area. With your support, IOCC has
been on the ground and responding... Thank you for
your gifts and for your prayers. Together, we will
help the region rebound."
