Forward with Faith: Plans for Expansion
Our Consecration in November of 2016 was a profound landmark in the life of Transfiguration Greek Orthodox Church, and having reached this milestone, our attention is turning to the future. With so many people moving to Austin, and so many locals converting to our ancient faith, our parish is growing and we must reach to meet the people God sends to us.
In order to keep pace with the growth of our parish and our youth ministry programs, we are planning to expand by building a new community center at the top of our hill. The overall vision includes new classrooms, administrative offices, banquet/fellowship hall facilities with a stage and commercial kitchen, space for ministry meeting rooms and offices, a proper bookstore and increased parking capacity. The new building will feature a prominent “Transfiguration” sign visible to Bee Caves Road, and will become a new Austin landmark — a light on the hill that cannot be hidden.
As we embark on this exciting new project, we are planning several “Town Hall” meetings to review the plans in detail. In addition, we will be offering TFIG1 nights where the parish is invited to review the plans, ask questions, offer comments and concerns, and to make suggestions.
