[Vox News] It’s Moving Day Edition

It’s upon us — the move from Mosaic to Space 12. This Sunday marks our first Liturgy in our new home, so if you’re around, join us for our housewarming Liturgy.

[Sunday Liturgy]
Our Sunday Liturgy is at 11:00 AM at Mosaic (5619 Airport Blvd…for the last time). Join us as we begin our journey through the church calendar known fondly around the world as the Lectionary.

[Liturgy Logistics at Space 12]
As we make our transition in becoming the newest tenants in Space 12, there are a few logistics we wanted to pass along.

1. Being a Good Neighbor
We want to encourage everyone to be mindful of the surrounding neighborhood. As tenants of this new space, we are surrounded by families and individuals who have called this section of East Austin home for dozens of years, if not generations. Let us be aware of our actions and try our best to be as good a neighbor as we can to the community.

2. Carpool/Biking Encouraged
One of the challenges we will be facing/addressing is enough parking for the Vox community. To help alleviate this, we encourage you all to try carpooling or biking to Space 12.

3. Space 12 Parking
We are anticipating a very full parking lot most Sunday mornings, and we will do our best to accommodate as may car as possible. There will be people on site to direct the parking traffic so as to best utilize the space.

When the Space 12 lot becomes full, there will also be off-site parking available on 13th St (between McKinley and Airport) and Oakgrove Ave (off of 12th).

For a map of all the available parking options during the Sunday Liturgy, it can be downloaded here.

[Free Movie Wednesdays]
There will be a weekly film showing hosted by KIPP, an organization that works with the AISD to empower underserved students here in the Austin community. Every Wednesday this summer starting at 7pm, there will be a free film playing at Space 12, so come enjoy a film if you can! Here’s the June lineup:

June 10: Grease
June 17: Bolt
June 24: The Hutto Project

For more information on the hosting organization, check out their website.

[Second Saturdays]
It’s that time of the month again!!! Join us next Saturday for our monthly installment of Second Saturdays where we spend an evening together playing games, watching engaging and entertaining films, eating delicious food and whittling an assortment of crafts. The festivities will begin at 7pm and will take place at Space 12 (3121 East 12th Street).

We would like to encourage you to invite your neighbors to join us in the fun. For more details, please see the Second Saturday facebook group.

[Summer Hoods]
This summer, we’ll be meeting by life stage (StuPros, Married, and Families). We’re having our kickoff on Sat, June 13 @ Space12 from 10am – 1pm. We’re having someone share their thoughts on Spiritual Formation to wrap up our spring conversation and then we’ll be having a BBQ lunch right after. Everyone’s invited, so come on out! If you have any questions, please email us.

[BYOM – Bring Your Own Mug]
Because food is such a great catalyst for community, we plan to have delectable edibles and drinkables available every Sunday morning during our liturgies. Although it would be easy to buy disposable cups for the drinks, we want to be an environmentally conscious community and ask that everyone bring their own mug. This way, you’ll not only feel more at home, but we can all do our part in reducing unnecessary waste.

[Rides to Vox]
If you live on campus and are in need of a ride on Sunday morning to join us for Liturgy, please email us and we’ll hook you up. If you could send an email by 11pm on Friday, that would be greatly appreciated.
