Where Do My Children Go?
Children are welcome to join you in worship. Nursery is available for 0-2 years during all worship services, and Sunday School for all ages is offered at both 9:30 AM and 11:00 AM.

How Do I Dress?
In keeping with the Austin spirit, you will find us in everything from dresses, suits and ties, to jeans and t-shirts. The praise and worship style services tend to be a little more casual than the traditional services. That said, wear what you feel most comfortable in, and join us for worship!
