[Vox News] Turn Them Tassels Edition

If you’re walking the plank from college to corporate, we salute you, graduates!! We hope you enjoy this weekend filled with memories, families and lots and lots of celebration. (But like a good college grad, please celebrate responsibly.) As your graduation present, this newsletter is dedicated to you. Huzzah!!

[Sunday Liturgy]
Our Sunday Liturgy is at 11:00 AM at Mosaic (5619 Airport Blvd). Join us as we continue our series entitled ‘Courage’, based upon the book of Joshua.

[Movin’ Like The Jeffersons]
You know the jingle…

Movin’ on up, to the East Side, to a deluxe apartment in the sky.
Movin’ on up, to the East Side, we finally got a piece of the pie.

That’s right!! Starting June 7th, Vox will begin having our Sunday morning Liturgies at Space 12 (3121 East 12th Street) at 11am. So it’ll be the same time, but different place. We’re really excited about this change of venue, and are looking forward to being a good neighbor to the community. As we begin the relocation process, there are a few things we wanted to make you all aware of.

1. New Chairs
We are on the receiving end of a plethora of new chairs!! Join us as we thank all the contributors for their generosity.

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. Thank You, Mosaic!!
It has been a tremendous blessing to have shared a space with an amazing church community like Mosaic. Not only have they been extremely generous hosts, but a great source of encouragement and inspiration by modeling what it means to be the body of Christ in the city.

Our Neighborhood groups will be happening next week (the week of May 17). If you have any questions, email us. For details of when and where we meet, check out the map.

[Community Initiated Events]
There are a couple events which have been initiated by people from the Vox community that we would like you to know about.

1. Pre-Requisite Wisdom
Due to the sheer number of Vox members going to grad/med/law school next year, we’re having a lunch for those going to school to meet up with those who have been there and done that. We’re meeting at Arpeggio Grill at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, May 17 (right after Vox). If you’re going to grad/med/law school, please come. And if you’ve been or currently going to grad/med/law school, please come, too and share your wisdom!

For more information, please see the facebook event.

2. Women’s Sunday Morning Bible Study
If you are interested in exploring the Bible and are a woman, this Sunday Pre-Vox gathering if for you!! Come to 4609 Ledesma Road if you’re interested or email Libby for more info.

[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.
