About The Austin Stone South

A Thriving Church in South Austin, TX

Back in 2014, our South Congregation was created and fueled by a desire to love our city and the people God has placed within it. Even as many things changed throughout the years, that core passion remains—we're devoted to Christ and devoted to one another. Here, we're more than just a group of people gathering once a week on Sundays—we're a family.

Even though we come from all different backgrounds and walks of life, we’re united by our deep love for Jesus and a heart for serving each other as brothers and sisters. But this family isn’t just for us—we want you to be a part of it!

Kids Ministry at The Austin Stone South

Each Sunday, we host programming for children 8 weeks old through 5th grade at 9am. 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.


Students Ministry at The Austin Stone South

High School Students

Rather than meeting on Sunday mornings, we encourage students in 9th through 12th grade to integrate into the life of the church body. Whether by worshipping alongside their parents or friends, sitting under the teaching of elders, or serving in other areas of ministry, we want to empower students to love the church!

High school students gather weekly on Sunday evenings from 6:30-8:30pm for food, fun, and gospel teaching.

Middle School Students

On Sunday mornings, we host a weekly gathering for middle school students at 9am with worship, teaching, and donuts!

Middle school students gather weekly on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8:30pm for food, fun, and gospel teaching.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where do you currently meet on Sundays?

Our South Congregation meets at Paredes Middle School (10100 S Mary Moore Searight Dr. Austin, TX 78748) on Sundays for a worship service at 9am! As you arrive, follow the big blue flags and park in either of the parking lots near the school. We’ll have coffee waiting for you!

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 an Austin Stone 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.

We also have a Students Ministry that hosts a service for 6th-8th graders at 9am!

Do you have ASL interpretation at your services?

Yes! We offer live ASL interpretation during our services, equipping classes, and Bible studies. We also have community groups for our deaf brothers and sisters to connect with!
