The homilies during Liturgy become our expression to be with and shaped by the mysteriously living words of Scripture. We have made them available online.

Each week at Liturgy we provide an opportunity for the community to voice prayers of thanksgiving and petition in a corporate setting. You can follow those prayers on the website to celebrate with and support our community.

Rhythm of Life
As a participating member of our community, we strongly encourage you to fill out a Rhythm of Life for each season. There are different areas within our Personal, Communal and Missional lives that will help enable us to live in the way of Christ. We believe that each person has unique expressions of each of these areas. So each season, each of us will fill out a Rhythm of Life in our Midweek Groups and use it as a tool to facilitate growth in our spiritual development.
Submit a Rhythm of life
(The online submission will only be accessible to the Pastoral Team and your Midweek Group coordinator as a means to support you in your spiritual formation)

Lectio Divina (“Divine Reading”) has been likened to “Feasting on the Word.” It’s a contemplative approach to engaging Scripture. Hearing it multiple times and reflecting on it allows the text to speak to our current environment and context. The goal is to listen to the Scriptures and have it shape how we live currently. There are four movements to this practice. The four parts are first taking a bite (Lectio), then chewing on it (Meditatio). Next is the opportunity to savor the essence of it (Oratio). Finally, the Word is digested and made a part of the body (Contemplatio).

Prayer of Examen
The Prayer of Examen is a daily spiritual exercise developed by St. Ignatius Loyola. This practice seeks to grow followers of Jesus in their capacity to discern God’s will, find God in all things, and enhance their understanding of God’s good creation. The prayer may take between ten and twenty minutes. The majority of that time will be spent reviewing your day. Try not to dwell too long on thoughts. Instead, allow yourself to become aware and move on.

Evangelical Covenant Church (ECC)
We understand the value and benefit for our church to being a part of something larger than ourselves. In the summer of 2011, Vox became a part of the Evangelical Covenant Church.
The ECC is a rapidly growing multiethnic denomination in the United States and Canada with ministries on five continents of the world. Founded in 1885 by Swedish immigrants, the ECC values the Bible as the word of God, the gift of God’s grace and ever-deepening spiritual life that comes through a faith with Jesus Christ, the importance of extending God’s love and compassion to a hurting world, and the strength that comes from unity within diversity.
The Evangelical Covenant Church is:
- Evangelical, but not exclusive
- Biblical, but not doctrinaire
- Traditional, but not rigid
- Congregational, but not independent
The Covenant Church
We can do more together than we can alone. We have all been gifted and resourced in specific ways to participate with others.
In becoming a Covenant Member of Vox, we enter into a relational agreement for the sake of committing to God, Mission, Community, and Formation. To commit to participating as a member of a functioning Body with your gifts, passions and resources (1 Corinthians 12).
Once a year, we will make the Covenant Member application process available (in the fall).
