West Congregation

Ross Lester

Welcome to the West Congregation of The Austin Stone!

Our desire is to be in the geographical center of West Austin - to be a place where people of all generations come together to worship Jesus, hear the Bible taught, develop spiritual friendships, and live in such a way that our community comes to know and love Jesus! We want the people of West Austin to know Jesus personally and for our church family to build relationships with neighbors and co-workers, demonstrating and declaring the gospel in everyday life.

Our West Congregation gathers for worship at the 916 S. Capital of Texas Hwy.

Your Congregation Pastor,
Ross Lester

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I wear?

The Austin Stone is a casual environment. Please wear whatever you are comfortable in. Some people wear shorts. Some people wear sports coats (but not many). Jeans are also very common.

Should I bring anything?

Nothing is necessary. The scripture passage we’re studying will be on the screen during the sermon. Some people like to bring their Bible or use a Bible app on their phones.

Who are we?

We’re a multi-generational group of people from all walks of life. Our people are young professional, single, married, married with 1 – 6 kids, single again, empty nesters, and so on.

What should I expect if I’m in Junior High or High School?

If you’re between 6th–12th grade, make sure to check out our STUDENTS ministry. At all of our locations, our students hold their own worship service with teaching that is specifically intended for all teens navigating this important and unique stage of life. During the school year Junior High meets during our 11:15am service, and High School meets at 5pm on Sunday evening. Starting May 26 and for the remainder of the summer semester, STUDENTS will not formally meet on Sunday mornings but there will be many events throughout season. For more information, feel free to reach out to Sam Drew, our STUDENTS Director.

What do we do on Sundays?

We gather to celebrate what Jesus has done for us. A live worship band leads us in worship, which is followed by a live sermon or live video stream of the sermon from our Downtown campus.

What activities are available for my children?

At The Austin Stone, rather than simply babysitting, we believe in actively teaching your children and supporting your leadership as parents. If you have a child between the ages of 8 weeks to the 5th grade, follow the signs to the KIDS check-in area. When you drop-off your child in KIDS, you can rest assured they will be cared for by screened, interviewed, and trained volunteers who love Jesus and your children. On the first Sunday of each month during the summer season, June 2, July 7, and August 4, all grade school KIDS will join their parents in the auditorium for Sunday services. There will be no grade school programing, kids completing kindergarten through fifth grade. For more information, feel free to reach out to Bo Schwarz , our KIDS Director.
