Sundays @ 10:30am
In the Orange Chapel
4400 Maybelle, Austin

Austin in in Stage 5 of COVID-19 safety guidelines. Here’s what you can expect:

  • Masks are required. Most of the adults and children over 12 in our community are vaccinated. However, we have a large number of younger children who are an important part of our liturgy on Sundays. We say the liturgy is the work of the people. Part of the work of the people includes wearing a mask to protect those around us who aren’t yet vaccinated or are otherwise vulnerable to the virus. 
  • If you have cold-like symptoms, stay home. We are asking this of everyone regardless of their role. Whether you are an participant, observer, reading prayers, leading music, or preaching – if you don’t feel well, please do not come on Sunday. But, DO let us know you’re not well so we can pray for you.
  • Passing of the Peace is outdoors, Coffee is ICED! We are serving cold brew on Sundays until the weather cools off. It’s toasty outside, the coffee will be cold.
  • Kidurgy will begin in September. Until then, kids will remain with us throughout liturgy. We welcome their presence and are planning liturgy with their needs in mind.

What is liturgy?

One meaning of the word "liturgy" is "the work of the people." We all band together as participants and hosts, to create a space for learning about Jesus and each other.

Why Lunch

We're a seven-day-a-week church, not just a few hours on Sunday morning. We end each liturgy by saying "See you throughout the week." That's why we always do lunch on Sundays -- we go out and begin the week together.

Kids in Our Community

Kids participate in liturgy and learn on their own level.

FAQ

  • What if I'm not sure what I believe?

    Great! Austin Mustard Seed is a church for passionate believers and hopeful skeptics. We are all in different places along somewhere on that spectrum, and we come together to experience community and learn the practices of Jesus.

  • What about kids?

    Kids participate in the beginning and end of our Liturgy but have their own teaching time. You can learn more here.

  • Where do I go?

    Austin Mustard Seed gathers for Liturgy at 10:30 am in the Orange Chapel at Rosedale Baptist Church (4400 Maybelle). You can park on the street or in the parking lot on the south side. Come on in and grab some coffee.

  • What do I wear?

    This is Austin, so people are usually pretty casual.

  • Why do you do Liturgy?

    We love how Liturgy forms us as people and gives so many an opportunity to help lead. You can learn more about it here.

  • How do I join a Community Group?

    Just visit the one nearest you. You can find a list here. It’s always a good idea to drop a quick email because times and locations are subject to change.

  • How can I participate?

    Come back a second week, and we’ll probably give you a job! We always need people who can help set up, make coffee, lead prayers, not to mention, many other opportunities throughout the week. You can send an email to our staff to learn more.

  • What do you believe?

    We stand alongside centuries of Christian tradition in embracing the Apostles Creed and the Nicene Creed. We also see Christianity as a continuation of the long story of God’s work in the world — read how we understand that story. You can also get a taste of our approach to belief by listening back to our Catechesis teaching series.
