FOR THE CITY

For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea. – Habakkuk 2:14

For the City exists to encourage and equip everyone to serve others and live on mission for God’s glory. Whether we are befriending our neighbors, encouraging our coworkers, meeting the needs of the homeless, investing in at-risk youth, supporting local schools, or reaching beyond our city’s borders, let’s share the radical love of the gospel. Everyone has gifts he or she can use to share God’s goodness with neighbors, the marginalized, and the world.


MINISTRIES

Street Ministry

By bringing meals to those who are homeless, we are able to build relationships and share God’s love. Join us in going to the streets, cooking, picking up donations, or planning events. Every week we get to spend time getting to know our neighbors in Fremont, Hayward, Newark, and Union City who live in tents, cars, and motels. We use foods as a means to meet needs and to open the door for investing in real relationships. Missional Communities can get involved too! Join us in going out to the streets any Tuesday evening, preparing meals that will be served to our friends who are homeless, or helping with special events.

Safe Families

We are currently looking for host families who want to get certified to care for at risk children while parents in crisis get back on their feet. Safe Families is a volunteer movement that connects the children of parents in distress with host families who have been called to open their hearts, their arms and their homes to serve those in need. The Safe Families experience starts at church, where families are invited to not only change the lives of a fellow family for better, but to enrich their own with untold blessings by living out the gospel. By hosting these vulnerable children along with support from the church, this extended family environment helps keep children safe and reunite families all in the name of Christ.

Make A Difference Day

Since 1992 National Make A Difference Day has been about neighbors helping neighbors, and at Resonate, we believe that dicipling and mission should start right here in our own communities! Each year, Resonate partners with a local school in our communities to clean, build up, and love on with hearts of giving and compassion.

Turn It Up!

Turn It Up is a summer academic camp for students who require some extra academic support in the summer. This is our SIXTH year serving in this way because we believe that both you and the students at Turn It Up have God-given gifts and talents. If you have a heart for kids, or you are wondering how you can be used this summer to make an impact on a child, consider volunteering at
