REAL COMMUNITY • REAL FAITH • REAL TRANSFORMATION
Our student ministry is called Refuge for a reason. Our goal is to be a place where every teenager can belong, believe, and become. The Refuge Student Ministry is a safe place to stretch and grow alongside other teens, but supported and loved by faithful adults.
WHAT WE VALUE
People that love Jesus love other people. We want our students to live their faith out by serving other people, so we spend time and resources loving people near and far.
While we work hard to foster relationships between teens, we take special care to put faithful adults around our students. This leads to students not just feeling like they belong in youth group, but that they are connected to the church as a whole.
The foundation of every faith is Christ. We want every teen to enjoy encountering Jesus through biblical truths. We pray this will lead to them seeking Him in their own time.
HOW TO GET INVOLVED
We believe community is best in small groups, and we think those small groups should be in homes! Every Wednesday we have a High School Huddle and a Middle School Huddle that meet in homes to hang out and talk about life with Jesus.
Bible Class Hour
We meet every Sunday morning in the youth center for breakfast and Bible Class. We start breakfast at 9:00am and usually begin class around 9:20. We think it’s so important to learn about God in ways that engage the mind, body, and spirit, so no class is ever the same!
During the school year, we meet one Saturday evening per month to worship God in a setting that is pretty unlike most offerings. There is no agenda other than to let the Holy Spirit lead the way. We typically meet the second Saturday of each month at 8:30pm in the Refuge.
