[Hill Country Rides for AIDS]
The Hill Country Ride for AIDS is coming up on April 25th. Partner with our friends, Care Communities, in their support of AIDS research. If you are interested in joining, “The Care Communities Cyclists Team”, check out and contact Roger Temme.

[Vox Baptism]
Baptism is the public celebration of participating in Christ’s death and resurrection. It connects us both to what God is doing in this world and with the global/historical community of friends following Christ. If you are interested in getting baptized or finding out more information, please contact Weylin.

[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.
