Hangouts

Hangouts are getting together and doing what we love: hiking, biking, basketball, baking, book club, movies; you get it. Hanging out and inviting others to join in the fun.

Host A Group

Shoreline values relationships.

“Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.” -Acts 2:46-47

Small groups are a great way to meet people and make life long friendships.  No matter where you are in life or in the Austin area, there is a small group perfect for you.  You will fully experience all that Shoreline has to offer when you connect in a small group.

Generation Change is an all-new suite of Bible studies designed to lead teens to a better understanding of God, themselves and their money—and how it all works together. In the three different teaching series, students are equipped with biblical principles to BE who God created them to be, DO more with their money, and GO out into the world ready to write their story. Lesson videos with Dave Ramsey and his daughter, Rachel Cruze, along with engaging hands-on activities, will bring new biblical and financial truths to this generation, making them a generation of change.

Sola Gratia

God’s Grace Abounds, this study will help you better understand that it is not about works or your ability to do good. You can never do enough good to earn your way into heaven. It’s all about what He did at the cross and not about what you do or don’t do. God’s grace abounds in the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. And when God’s perfect creation made an imperfect choice, grace was there. Learn more about God’s amazing grace in this 6 week study on Living in Grace.

Relationships

God is all about relationships. He is unified as The Holy Trinity of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. This relationship the three is so intimate, that He created man in their collective image. Within us all is the longing to relate; spiritually, emotionally and physically. God meets our need for spiritual connection with His Spirit. Relationships are so important in God’s order that Jesus main ministry was to reestablish man’s relationship to God. This study will take you into a deeper understanding of God’s desire to have relationship with you.

Love Wins

There is nothing greater than God’s illogical, immeasurable and unconditional love. It’s love that is not established by what we can do for God or others; it is purely based on what’s been done for us. As God’s amazing love for us is unveiled, our hearts and lives will reflect that love. Love Wins will challenge you to shift your focus from how much you love God, to His passionate love for you. It makes all the difference in the world!

IN Justice - Making wrongs right

There are so many wrongs in this world that sometimes God prompts you to help make some right. The passion and desire that bubbles up in your heart when you see something wrong taking place, so much so that God moves you to take a stand. This study will go over how God moved in the hearts of His people and no matter how small we feel God can do BIG and Great things through us.

The Fight of Your Life

Faith works through Love. The more you know how much God loves you the more you surrender and trust in Him. The more you surrender and trust in Him the more faith plays a role in your daily life.
