Filling the World with More Possibilities

November 17, 2019

Our second and final worship service for our Financial Stewardship Campaign for 2020 will continue celebrating our achievements as a religious community. Our Wildflower Community is recognized by many in Austin as a passionate, caring, and committed congregation whose love reaches well beyond our walls. Let us reflect on the strengths of our religious community which has allowed us to transcend our internal struggles and limitations to be a beacon of love and hope to people both within and outside of our religious community.
