IS A NEW ENTRANCE AVAILABLE?
Yes! If you are coming from the Westlake area, there is a new entrance available for you to take right off of Bee Cave Rd before you get to Cuernavaca. This entrance is right-turn only and only available as an entrance at this time. Our parking volunteers will direct you to an alternate place to exit the parking lot after services.
WHEN SHOULD I ARRIVE?
We recommend arriving at least 15 minutes early, so you'll have plenty of time to find a parking space, check in your children with Ridge Kids, and find a seat in the Worship Center. From the moment you arrive at Austin Ridge, we have volunteers available to help direct you!
ARE COVID PROCEDURES IN PLACE?
Beginning Sunday, April 11, worship services and ministry events will become mask-optional. Please note that some ministries and events are exempt from this policy and will require masks due to special circumstances. If you are part of one of these exceptions, you will hear directly from that ministry. If you would like to know more about the safety procedures that we have in place at our campuses, click here.
CAN I STILL WORSHIP AT HOME?
Yes! We will continue to offer an online worship experience for those who are more comfortable worshipping from home. The livestream of our Sunday services will be available at 9am and 11am on Sunday mornings. You can view the live stream by visiting our Austin Ridge homepage here at those times, or by visiting our Facebook page here. After the 11am live stream is complete, the service will be made available for you to watch on our Worship at Home page here.
WHAT DO YOU HAVE FOR KIDS?
We have classes for infants through 5th grade. Ridge Kids is a place where kids learn about God's love for them in a safe, exciting, and encouraging environment. An amazing team of volunteer leaders teach, challenge, and encourage children each week, using age-appropriate lessons from the Bible, applicable activities, and games that are more than just fun! Birth-1st grade meets in Bldg A during both services, and 2nd-5th grade meets in Bldg C during both services. Please note: All families will still need to check in your children with Ridge Kids upon arrival. For more information on what you can expect on Sunday mornings with Ridge Kids, click here.
If you are a first time visitor with us, you can pre-register your children for Ridge Kids HERE.
WHAT IS AVAILABLE FOR STUDENTS?
We want to be a place where your student can connect with Jesus and connect with other students! Ridge Students is a movement of high school and middle school students (grades 6-12) committed to pursuing Jesus in a deeper way and loving people. Middle School meets at 11am on Sunday mornings in Bldg D, and High School will continue meeting at 6pm on Sundays.
HOW CAN ADULTS GET CONNECTED?
Attending a Life Group or Bible study is the first step in making a large church feel smaller. A great way to grow in your relationship with Jesus is to have intentional relationships with people who have the same goal. A Life Group is the ideal place for cultivating these relationships!

IS THERE A SPECIAL NEEDS MINISTRY?
Yes! Here at the Ridge, we believe that God created each of us unique and special in His image! As we long to reach kids and families in Austin, we understand that some of His children have unique abilities and needs. Embrace Ministry is designed to support families of kids, teens, and adults affected by disability. This ministry meets in Bldg A during both services. Click here for more info on Embrace.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING SERVICE?
You can expect meaningful worship and biblical teaching you can apply to everyday life. We have live worship with a full band in each venue, focused on who God is and what He has done for us. In every service, you will hear a relevant, straightforward message walking through Scripture that will help you develop a growing, vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ and provide a strong biblical foundation. Sample some previous sermons here.
ARE ALL SERVICES THE SAME?
Every campus is unique, so start with the one that is closest to you. Go to our Sermons page to watch some past sermons and to get a feel for the teaching element in services.
