Nice people, good mix of young and old, many kids, open-minded theology, thoughtful sermons. Active in the community--IHN, Montopolis Community Center, wheelchairs for Africa, MFSA, a host of others. My wife and I began attending 4 years ago after extensive research and visits to Methodist and other mainline churches in north/northwest Austin, and we love it. When our son was born, we made good use of St. John's-Austin's ""cry room,"" which allows parents to stay with infants and still see and hear the service. With the many young people, there's active kids' programs and tons of small-group opportunities such as adult Sunday schools, strong music programs, and a wonderful preacher (and sometime guitarist) in lead pastor David Gilliam. People dress as they like--for a lot of the younger people, that means casual. Mid-sized, growing church, maybe 250-300 attendance? Highly recommended!
Pros: mix of ages, kids' programs, pastors/sermons, community work
