We want to help you live and have the spiritual life you’ve always wanted. For most of us this takes some work. There is both a science and art to it all. In that way it’s a lot like a song or symphony. Here’s what we mean.
At Resonate the melodies are our Sunday morning experience. If this is all you ever get, you’ll get the song. Sunday morning is the anchor or core of our church. It is here that we talk about faith as a way of living, instead of a way of knowing. Sundays are also when we gather for worship (experiencing God) and practice communion (spiritual formation.) This is also a place to make friends, which leads us to the harmonies.
The harmonies are your relationships. But not just the casual ones, but those that go beneath the surface. These types of friends help us go into the dark places and they light candles for us. They give us hope. They spread grace. We call them the harmonies because they resonate with the melody. They aren’t different, but they’re not the same. You’ll find these relationships in our small groups (Dinner Church) and one on one.
Musically, it’s the bass that grounds us. It lets us know when to clap, helps us feel the music and fills the room with sound. Simply, it makes the music more real. The same is true at Resonate. The bass are the things we do that help our faith fill the room. These include spiritual practices (like Bible reading, Examen, and others) as well as corporate practices like Lent and Advent. In all these the goal is simple. We want to tune it and amplify the presence of God in our hearts, minds, lives, and the world.
