About The Austin Stone West

A Vibrant Church in West Austin, TX

Back in 2011, two churches merged together to become the West Congregation of The Austin Stone. Since then, God has been faithful to grow our church into a multi-generational community of faith where people can belong, connect, and be led for His glory. Even though our people come from all different backgrounds,

we’re unified by a love for God and for each other. We’re a mix of young professionals, married couples, busy families, and empty nesters. Whatever stage of life you’re in, there’s a place for you at Austin Stone West.

Kids Ministry at The Austin Stone West

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.


Students Ministry at The Austin Stone West

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 5-6:30pm at our West Campus for food, fun, worship, and gospel teaching.

High school DCOMMs meet throughout the week in host homes.

Middle School Students

On Sunday mornings, we host a service for 6th-8th graders at 11am for a time focused on building community, having fun, and establishing firm foundations of faith!

Middle school students gather weekly on Wednesday evenings from 7-8:30pm at our West Campus for food, fun, worship, and gospel teaching. Middle school DCOMMs also meet during this time.

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the best way to get involved at Austin Stone West?

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.

You can also volunteer on one of our service teams to get to know more people at our West Congregation!

What should I expect on a Sunday morning?

When you arrive, you’ll be greeted and guided by our Welcome Team! They’ll be happy to help answer any questions you may have. From there, feel free to stop by our Connections area. We’d love to meet you!

During the service, you’ll experience engaging worship with a live band and biblically-based teaching from an in-person sermon or a broadcasted sermon from one of our other congregations!

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. If it’s your first time visiting, please plan on arriving 20-30 minutes before the service to check your little ones in!

We also have a Students Ministry that hosts a service for middle schoolers during the 11am service and high schoolers at 5pm for a time 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.

Do you offer Bible studies or classes?

Yes! We have an Adult Bible Fellowship that meets at 11am every Sunday morning and each semester we offer a variety of studies and equipping classes throughout the year.
