Moving is difficult, but trying to find a new church community can be even harder. Spending time ‘church shopping’ around a new city while you’re still getting adjusted to the area can be physically and mentally exhausting. When it comes to moving into a new home, you want to ensure that your transition is as smooth and easy as possible for your family. So to help those of you making a move to South Austin, we’ve done a little research into some of most trusted churches in Austin Oak Hill’s area. Below are five that you should check out as you look into churches.
1.) Oak Hill Bible Church
This non-denominational and independent Bible church is lead by Pastor Stephen Armstrong. The congregation is made up of a small, loving Christian community that focuses on truth and grace. Here, the worship style is contemporary with a variety of scripture-based songs and hymns. Sunday services begin at 10:30 A.M., and sermons are taught in a verse-by-verse manner of preaching.
2.) Woodlawn Baptist Church
For practicing Baptists looking for a home church, Woodlawn Baptist Church is a great community to get involved in. With a focus on connecting people to Christ and growing in relationship with God and community, Woodlawn provides opportunities in ministry, worship, and life groups. Best of all, if you’re still investigating whether or not you want to become a Christian, the church welcomes you, and accepts every race, ethnicity, and faith.
3.) All Saints Presbyterian Church
This Presbyterian worship community’s mission is to live and function as the body of Christ. In addition to their Sunday services, they have weekly prayer services on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays at both 9:00 A.M. and 4:30 P.M. that focus on meditation. There are many ways to connect and serve within the church and Bible classes are offered for both children and adults.
4.) Sunrise Community Church
Sunrise Community Church is a Christian community that believes all differences and diversity should be praised. As a result they do not discriminate against any race, faith belief, or class. The church’s chief mission is to live out Jesus’ love through service, which it does through many ministries it supports that involve helping the homeless and planting new churches. Sunrise also offers intimate small groups that focus on community, as well as learning new scripture.
5.) Crossroads Community Church
This diverse community is all about proclaiming the life-changing reality of Jesus Christ to those around the world. Each worship service is an hour and a half long with a focus on worship, prayer, and communion. The church also has a large student ministry for those in 6th – 12th grade with many opportunities for kids to get involved within the church body.
