Wildflower Church is a deliberately inclusive, open-minded religious community in the Unitarian Universalist tradition, growing spiritually together, spreading love, justice, and joy! We create our community by covenanting one to another, using our Covenant of Right Relations. We meet in South Austin, at our shared campus.
Reaching Out to Help Us Reach Deeper Within Ourselves
February 12, 11:30 AM
Rev. Brian Ferguson
Our Building the Beloved Community program is an intentional outreach from Wildflower to connect with our neighbors and hear the concerns they have in their lives. This program engages social justice work with a strong anti-oppression focus and potential for profound spiritual growth for the people involved and our congregation. This worship service will reflect on how our religious community has been enriched by this work and what opportunities lay ahead for Wildflower.
Second Offering This Sunday
The second offering this Sunday will be donated to south Austin Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood provides high quality, affordable reproductive health care. This offering will go to their patient assistance fund.
Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas (PPGT) serves as a healthcare safety net for the communities throughout Central and North Texas by providing high-quality, affordable healthcare to residents who are low-income, uninsured, and under-insured. Approximately 70% of PPGT’s patients are at, or below, the Federal Poverty line and thousands depend on assistance every year to afford the critical healthcare services that they might otherwise go without. Thanks to PPGT’s diverse and supportive donor base, assistance is provided in the following categories: Breast and cervical cancer screenings, testing and treatment for Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) and abortion care.
Visit the Adult Programs page for a complete listing of groups and courses. Childcare is available for Sunday classes between 9:30 and 1, and may be available for other classes and groups.

Parents as Resident Theologians
We will be offering an Adult Education Class called Parents as Resident Theologians. The class will be offered February 12 and 26 at 10 am in classroom 2. See the newsletter for registration information.
This course provides a structure for adults to examine their own theological beliefs, and then answer children’s religious questions. Adults in this program report that once they can answer a seven-year-old’s questions, they can explain Unitarian Universalism to their own parents, neighbors, and friends.
Are you shopping for a church home that doesn’t require commitment to any specific metaphysical beliefs? Unitarian Universalism is a non-credal religion that draws wisdom from many religions, literature, art, and science, and interprets it through a concrete set of principles. We believe in Standing on the Side of Love for all the world’s people. You can explore the covenant, mission, values, and vision of Wildflower online.
Young Adult Event
Join the Young Adult group on March 4th at 3pm at Buzzmill Cafe/Bar, 1505 Town Creek Dr. Austin, TX 78741. We will gather for a fun time with conversation, beer or coffee, and games. Please bring games to play in pairs or groups.
Unitarian Universalist Social Justice History Workshop
Unitarian Universalism has a rich and powerful history especially in the area of Social Justice. Many people come to Unitarian Universalism and Wildflower Church because of our ongoing Social Justice work. At this time in our country’s history many people are feeling despondent about the direction of our country yet many are feeling a re-energized call to social justice. This situation has occurred throughout history. This workshop will explore our religious movement’s history in Social Justice work while emphasizing our spiritual grounding for this work as well as the struggles social justice has caused within our movement. Sunday, March 5, 1:30-3:00 PM, led by Rev. Brian Ferguson.
