so in Christ, we, though many form one body,
and each member belongs to all the others.
Romans 12:5, NIV
We are excited for this year's virtual retreat. On the weekend of May 22-23, Resonance Church will be hosting a couple of virtual events for the entire church community.
Given that we haven't been able to worship and meet together for over year, it seems only right to reflect on the truth that though we are apart, we are still BETTER TOGETHER. While we miss being together physically, we are still brothers and sisters in Christ. And we can still come together in prayer, conversation, meal deliveries and fellowship to support and love one another.
This retreat weekend is meant as a time of joy and laughter, so.... we are planning a day of games and challenges on Saturday and worship and sharing on Sunday.
Here's what you need to know:
Download the Actionbound app. The game code will be released on Saturday.
YouTube Video Announcement to kick-off the challenges. You will also need this document with the QR code for the game.
10:30am - 6:30pm
Let the games begin!! It will take 1 to 1.5 hours to complete the challenges so plan ahead and ensure you have enough time to complete the activities. Many of these activities can be completed inside or outdoors with minimal supplies but props, costumes and cookies may be involved!
Join us on zoom for a time of fellowship AND a mystery challenge!! The zoom link is being sent out via e-mail. If you can't find the link in your inbox, please contact Chris Fong (firstname.lastname@example.org).

Retreat Theme Song
Rend Collective's song FEELS GOOD is based on Psalm 133:1 which says "How wonderful, how beautiful, when brothers and sisters get along!"
This pretty much sums up how we feel about this year's retreat! Check it out:
