Frequently Asked Questions

We have services every Sunday at 9am and 11am. We currently meet at Dripping Springs Middle School on Sundays, located at 111 Tiger Lane.

Please note: Occasionally we host special outdoor services at our future campus property, located at 3100 US 290 (immediately west of Malone Diesel).

We recommend arriving at least 15 minutes early, so you'll have plenty of time to find a parking space, drop off your children and/or students, grab a cup of coffee, and find a seat. From the moment you arrive, we have volunteers to help direct you!

Each Sunday we gather for meaningful worship and biblical teaching that can be applied to everyday life. In every service, we have live worship followed by a relevant, straightforward message that will help you know Jesus, grow in Him, and serve Him daily. Watch some of our previous services here.

We have classes for children from birth through 5th grade during our 9am and 11am services. Ridge Kids is a place where kids learn about God's love for them in a safe, fun, and encouraging environment. An amazing team of volunteer leaders teach, challenge, and encourage children each week, using age-appropriate lessons from the Bible, activities, and games!

If you are a first time visitor, you can pre-register your children for Ridge Kids here.

We want to be a great place where your student can be with friends and learn about Jesus. Ridge Students offers large group gatherings, small groups, events, and opportunities to serve — all to pursue God and love people!

Please note: Middle School meets at 9am on Sunday mornings, and High School meets at 11am.

We have several opportunities to get connected at the Ridge! Our Young Adults ministry meets weekly on Tuesdays at our Southwest Campus. Our Men’s and Women’s ministries offer Bible studies, classes, and events throughout the year. We also offer Events, Classes, and Life Groups, which are great ways to grow in your relationship with Jesus and build community.

We offer accessible parking, entrances, and seating.

Embrace, our special needs ministry, connects individuals of all abilities to our Sunday morning experience. We offer inclusion services and classes for children and teens with special needs, creating an opportunity for the entire family to worship and study God’s Word. If you are planning your first visit, let our Embrace team know you are coming by filling out this form.

Please note: Our Inclusion Middle School Service meets at 9am on Sunday mornings, and our Inclusion Ridge Kids (Birth-5th) classes and Inclusion High School Service meet at 11am.

    Breanna calls Austin home, but was raised a country girl. She attended college in San Marcos to lose her accent and pursue a degree in music. Although being part of an orchestra was her goal, she instead landed a career in retail management and is in awe at how God used that experience to prepare her for her role as Connections Director at Austin Ridge. It is Breanna's pleasure to lead the First Impressions volunteers, to assist our pastors and ministry directors in coordinating events, and to be a great resource for those seeking to get involved at Austin Ridge. Breanna has a heart to help the body of this church experience how God can use them and how God can reach them. Look for her in the lobby on Sundays. She would love to meet you!
