Chris, who could you invite this weekend?

This Sunday, August 25, we will host our second ever "Taster" Liturgy. We'll gather at 4:30pm at Foodheads (616 W 34th St.). They've offered to let us use their space, so we're going to try it out and see how it goes.

We call it a "taster" because it's our chance to give our friends and neighbors a "taste" of what our Sundays together will be like

We call it "liturgy" because the word means "work of the people," and everyone is a valued participant.

This Sunday will be a multi-generational liturgy -- the kids in our community will participate with us. As many of us experienced growing up, there is great value in kids seeing and participating in how the big people pray and worship together. We will have an element geared specifically for them, but adults seem to learn a lot from kid stuff too. There will also be an activity table in the room where you can sit with your children if they want to be hands on with something for part of the service.

Our goal is to host the liturgy on a weekly basis this year, and meeting at Foodheads is one step toward finding a location that might work for us. But it will take a group of people committed to following Jesus and working together. We hope you'll be there and you'll bring a friend to learn about this exciting opportunity.

Please RSVP on Facebook or send us an email to let us know you're coming.

Midweek Meetup: Draught House

It’s easy to spend our days at work and our nights with Netflix and then forget how much we need friends and community. That’s why we’re always saying “See you throughout the week”. Sometimes, it's good to put fellowship on your calendar.
Who: You and your friends
What: 45 drinks on tap and excellent conversation
Where: Draught House, 4112 Medical Pkwy, Austin, TX
When: Thursday, August 22, 8pm

We can’t follow Jesus alone, we need each other. We need more than just an hour or two on Sundays. Parties. Babysitting. Helping each other move. Mourning the hard times. Celebrating the wins. Life together.
Let’s resurrect a worn-out old church word: Fellowship

Save the Dates

  • Midweek Meetup: Draught House, Thursday, August 22, 8PM

Building a Team

Austin Mustard Seed building a team. Our hope is that this team will commit to God and to each other to being a church for North/Central Austin. While the church will have many expressions, we are specifically looking forward to launching a public liturgy later this year.

So what are we doing now?

Every week we host get-togethers, including cultivate meetings, service projects, lunches and happy hours. These are opportunities to meet new people, and introduce them to aMS. Here are some types of people we are looking for in our team:

  • People who don't know much about Jesus, but want to learn.
  • People who want to serve their neighbors.
  • People who get excited about building new things.
If this describes you or someone you know, we hope you'll drop us a line and join us soon! Invite your friends to the next Liturgy Taster or forward them this email.
