Walking through the doors of a church you’ve never attended can be intimidating.
We hope to take a few of those concerns away by addressing them right here:
What kind of church are you?
We’re a Lutheran church. That means we believe in the Bible as God’s Word, in Jesus as the only true Savior of all the world’s sinners, and in the gracious work of God through baptism and the Lord’s supper. Find out more about our beliefs.
Where are you located?
We have two locations (campuses) one in Northeast Austin off I-35 and Braker Lane, and the other in Pflugerville near Kelly and Weiss Lanes. Here’s a map.
What should I wear?
There is no dress code at Holy Word. You’ll see some people dressed in jeans and a polo, and others will be dressed in their Sunday best. God isn’t that interested in our threads. Come as you are!
What can I expect during the worship service?
Our services are generally a little over an hour. During the service, you’ll hear a 20-30 minute sermon from one of our preachers on staff. The message is always based on the Bible, makes sense, and makes a difference in daily life.
Oh, and we love to sing at Holy Word! At every service an acoustic guitarist, a keyboardist, and/or song leaders will assist us in singing praises to Jesus. We offer a blended worship service which means that we include beloved hymns and also contemporary hits you may hear on Christian radio. Hang around after the service for refreshments and get to know us. First-time guests receive a free gift as our way of saying “thanks for coming!”
What about my kids? Will they attend worship with me?
We love having children in the service. Right before the sermon, the children are invited to come forward for a simplified message.
- After the children’s message at Austin, your kids can return to their seat with you. Children’s Sunday School is offered at 9:30 a.m.
- After the children’s message at Pflugerville, children ages PreK to 10 years old walk with a trained youth leader to a children’s area where they will hear a Bible story and complete a supervised activity. Children return at the end of the service.
