This Week's Message:
Join us weekly for
v. res·o·nat·ed, res·o·nat·ing, res·o·nates
1. To exhibit or produce resonance or resonant effects.
2. To evoke a feeling of shared emotion or belief: "The love of God seems to resonate within the hearts of secular and religious people alike."
3. To correspond closely or harmoniously: "As the people joined together in worship, their voices seemed to resonate with the voices of the Heavenly Choir."
Resonate was formed as a movement of people gathering together outside of any "church building" to resonate in one Spirit, the Holy Spirit. Resonate is not only a gathering for the people of Emmaus Road Church, but for people of any church background. It is not only a gathering for Christians, but for anyone who is seeking more out of life. This is a time for people of any background to join together and find ways to resonate with one another on this journey of life. For more information or for the address of our gathering location, contact Melissa at email@example.com.
To cause to resound.
Resonate meets every 2nd and 4th Sunday night of each month @ 6PM
@ The Berleans' home
*Childcare is provided during our Worship and Prayer nights.
