About The Austin Stone North

A Growing Church in North Austin, TX

Our North Congregation was founded in 2015 on the desire to be an authentic people with a heart for sharing the gospel throughout our city and the nations. While a lot has changed in the years that followed, that passion remains true today. Our hope is to be a place where people can belong, connect, and be led for the flourishing of God’s glory.

Whether you’re a single professional, a new or seasoned family, or an empty nester, there’s a place for you here! We host worship services, equipping opportunities, community gatherings, and more to create welcoming spaces where people from all walks of life can come together to worship Jesus.

Kids Ministry at The Austin Stone North

Each Sunday, we host programming for children 8 weeks old through 5th grade at 9am and 11am. Our thoroughly vetted and trained volunteers provide a safe and fun environment for kids to worship Jesus in a large-group setting and learn about the Bible in a smaller group. And for nursery-aged children, we provide a caring space where they are prayed over and cared for during services.

Frequently Asked Questions

What's the best way to get connected at Austin Stone North?

We’d recommend attending one of our Discovery events which take place throughout the year. At these quick gatherings, you’ll have an opportunity to meet our pastors and elders, hear more about The Austin Stone, and ask any lingering questions you may have!

If you’re looking for community, we’d love to get you plugged into a Group! Each semester, we offer a class that outlines what it means to be invested in a Group at The Austin Stone. You can stop by our Connections area on Sunday mornings to get more information.

How can I get plugged into a small group?

Throughout the year, we host a Connect Class which is designed to connect you with others at the church and form new groups. If there isn’t an upcoming Connect Class, you can reach out to Ian O'Donnell—he’ll help you begin the connection process.

Do you offer childcare or programming for kids on Sundays?

Yes! Our Kids Ministry has programming available for newborns through 5th grade. Upon arrival, follow the signs to the Kids check-in area. If you need any help, find a volunteer wearing a Kids Ministry shirt—they’ll point you in the right direction. Because of our commitment to safety, you’ll check your child(ren) in using our check-in system. If it’s your first time visiting, please plan on arriving 30-45 minutes before the service to check your little ones in!

We also have a Students Ministry that hosts a service for middle schoolers focused on building community, having fun, and establishing a firm foundation of faith!

Do you have ASL interpretation at your services?

We don’t currently have live interpretation, but our South Congregation does offer live American Sign Language interpretation during their 9am service each Sunday! We also post each sermon online with closed captioning.
