Easter 2015 – The Veil

Sin separated us from God. Once a year, one man was allowed beyond the veil of the most holy place in the temple and into God’s presence. But Easter changes everything.

Jesus bridged the gap between God and man. He died for our sin and at the very moment he released his spirit the barrier that separated us from God’s presence was destroyed.

Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split Matthew 27:51

Every year at Easter we remember Jesus’ death and resurrection. It is the turning point of history, the climax of the story. Every day before pointed to that first Easter Sunday and every day after is better because of it.

Did you know more people attend church Easter weekend than any other time of the year? It’s true and we are getting ready to welcome them to Shoreline.

Thousands of people will hear about God’s unconditional love and scandalous grace through the compelling Easter story, The Veil.  You can find out more here.  Invite a friend. Spread the word on social media. It is the greatest story ever told.

Service times are as follows:

NORTH Campus
Saturday, April 4th at 5 & 7pm
Sunday, April 5th at 8am, 9:30am & 11:30am

SOUTH Campus
Sunday, April 5th at 9am, 10:45am & 12:30pm

We can’t wait to share the beauty of God’s love and his amazing grace!


An Evening with Beth Moore – Thank You

I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for attending An Evening with Beth Moore.

If you’re anything like me, you were deeply touched by the message and the sweetness of God’s presence as we gathered together from every part of our beautiful city. I pray God met you right where you needed him most, and you were inspired to continue following him heart and soul.

What a privilege it is for us as God’s daughters to partner with him in loving the precious people in our communities back into the loving arms of our Creator. We may feel odd at times (much like the shape of a puzzle piece) yet God somehow fits us all together to create a grand mosaic called The Church. Each one of us has a part to play in the bigger story God is writing for his glory.

As we move forward from here, I pray you will position yourself well in a local church where you can CONNECT with God, live in COMMUNITY with others, and use your gifts and talents for this CAUSE that is bigger than yourself.

Again, it was an honor to have you at Shoreline Church for this citywide gathering! If there is anything we can do to be a blessing in your life or if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call 512-310-2244 or email

Cheering you on,

An Evening with Beth Moore

Beth Moore is a speaker and author of many best-selling Bible studies. We’ve offered several of her studies over the years at Shoreline. Women’s lives have been enriched and their relationship with Jesus strengthened through Beth’s teaching. We are thrilled to be hosting an evening with Beth Moore LIVE at the Shoreline North campus.

Beth is a woman of purpose, preparation, prayer, and passion. It’s apparent in everything she does, from teaching Bible studies at her home church in Houston and on her blog to speaking to the thousands of women who attend her events each year.

Beth Moore will be with us LIVE Friday, January 30, 2015 at 7pm. Doors open at 6:30pm. ASL interpretation and Spanish translation will be available but childcare is not provided.

This is a city wide gathering for the women of Austin and surrounding areas. Churches from all over the community are partnering together to make this a wonderful event for our city.

Tickets are available online for only $20, but don’t just buy a ticket for yourself. We want to challenge every woman to invite a friend who does not yet know Jesus.  We know their lives will be changed and the truth of God’s word will be planted deep in their hearts. Please note, the last time Beth Moore was in the Austin area tickets for the Cedar Park Center sold out. So purchase your tickets TODAY!
