Classes designed to help you get connected at The Austin Stone. Most of these classes include a small group component with group meetings outside of class to facilitate community and mission, with many groups continuing after the class semester.
Classes that walk through core Christian beliefs with an emphasis on how theology should inform our choices and pursuits in everyday life.
This Connect Class is for people wanting to get connected into the community and mission of The Austin Stone. We hope to launch brand new Missional Communities through the relationships formed at your table groups during these four weeks. Connect Class is a great chance to get connected to people at our church for the purpose of launching as a Missional Community.
What does it mean that singleness is a gift? How do we know if we are ‘called' to singleness? How can God be glorified through the unique joy and pain of singleness? Between the world and the Church there is no shortage of mixed messaging about singleness. Join us as we search the scriptures to discover God’s view of singleness and devote ourselves to an undivided heart.
The 6 week class will begin 9/17 and will meet at Austin High School at 5pm.
Connect Class is designed to connect you with others at our church to form new Missional Communities. Over the course of launching these groups, we will help you learn the values and practices of biblical community, build relationships with others in your group, and move toward deeper involvement with this church!
This class is for couples who are engaged or married up to three years. Connect with others in this important life stage and learn principles of a Godly marriage, while discussing practical issues we all face when two become one. Couples are required to participate in a mid-week group during the class (you'll be able to select nights that work with your schedule when you sign up). If you are engaged and completing Pre-Marital Counseling, please take this class after finishing counseling.
Come learn what it means to be devoted to covenant community in this five-week class. We will explore the convictions and rhythms behind Missional Communities and connect you with people in your area who will link arms with you in living out this vision.
Christ Centered Parenting is a 6 week class designed to equip parents to responsibly lead their kids through key cultural topics of our day. From preschoolers through young adults this class trains parents to walk their children through the following topics:
- Gender Issues

This class is intended to help parents shape their children in a biblical worldview, so that their children can one day shape the culture.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning (John 1:1-2). Please join us as we pursue an in depth study of the Gospel of John with other West men as we seek to gain a deeper understanding of the historical context of this canonical gospel, and more importantly, seek to know our Lord and Savior more intimately.
New Testament Survey is an 8-week class designed to help all readers of Scripture understand and engage with the texts of the New Testament more meaningfully. Whether you’re brand new to the Bible or have been reading it for decades, this course is intended to draw out the literary themes, textual features, background, and theology that the authors of the New Testament were dealing with as well as give a framework for personal study and application. The goal of this class is for students to walk away with a more confident understanding of what is in the 27 documents that God has inspired for His church, known together as the New Testament.
Join us for an in-depth Bible study of the Old Testament historical narrative of Nehemiah to see how God sovereignly works through his people to accomplish his purposes. This class will use Kathleen Nielson’s study guide: Nehemiah: Rebuilt and Rebuilding and facilitated small-groups.
Debt, savings, generosity, contentment, spending... What are you doing with the money and wealth that God has given you? We'll learn and apply how to address these money categories in ways that honors Christ.
Most people are familiar with the idea of heaven, but very few of us, even Christians, know much about it. What is heaven? Where is heaven? What will we be like in heaven and what will we do there? In this 6-week Bible study, we will look to God’s word for the answers to these questions as we fall more in love with our Savior and our future.
Jesus calls the church to “Go and make disciples of all nations.” So how do we, as His church, do that? Is everyone supposed to go overseas, and are there really people who have never heard about Jesus? Can God use my business skill or degree for His Global purposes? What does it look like for me to make disciples while I’m right here in Austin?
These are just some of the questions we will cover during For The Nations. This is a 10-week class put on collaboratively by local Austin churches who want to join Jesus in seeing Austin and all of the world worship our great God! We will hear from God through His Word, His people, and His Spirit as we go on this journey together. We would love for you and your friends to join God in His mission!
Are you married? For how long? 1 week? 5 years? 20+ years? No matter how long you have been married, all couples need to be reminded what it means to have a Gospel-Centered marriage. In this class, we will explore how to place Jesus at the center of our marriages through times of struggle, times of blessing and all those times in-between.
Every follower of Jesus is called to be involved in Discipleship relationships, but what does it really mean? How do we invest in others the way Jesus invested in those closest to him? Join this class to learn what it means to make, mature and mobilize disciples of Jesus Christ.
Join us for Bible Doctrine, an eight week class on campus where we will teach systematic theology from the Word of God. As God's people we are to be rooted in truth, not tossed to and fro by every wind or doctrine.
