Welcome to

refuge church!

We are an open fellowship of like-minded families and individuals that seek to follow Jesus Christ, nurture relationships in community with one another, and enter into the brokenness and spiritual darkness of the world around us. We desire to live out the reality that God is our Refuge, our Strong Tower, and is worthy of all of our worship.

Refuge church vision

The identity of Refuge Church is based on a 3-part vision:


RETREAT

Together we recognize our worth in the Lord’s eyes as we walk alongside of each other in joy, in brokenness, and in hurt. We live out the reality that God is our refuge as we provide a safe and accepting place for those who are near to Christ and those who are far away.


Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust."

Psalm 91:1-2 (NIV)



RENEWAL
Together we draw closer to the Lord, we receive His healing, and we grow to be more like Jesus. We respond to His goodness and Glory through worship, the study of His Word, and intentional living in relationship with Him.

Show me your ways, Lord, teach me your paths.  Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.
Psalm 25:4-5 (NIV)

RESPONSE
Together we engage the community around us and the greater world of lost souls through missional living. We equip ourselves to live out our faith while teaching and training others in the way that leads to salvation and eternal life.

Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.  Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,"

Matthew 28:18-19 (NIV)


what to expect

Casual Dress
Come as you are and be comfortable! Most people dress casually. Jeans, shorts, or business casual are all appropriate.  We’re more interested in being in community with you than what you wear.


Worship Services
We believe worship to be the glorification of God, regardless of time and place.  When we gather on Sunday mornings, we use culturally relevant music, prayer, and teaching from God's Scriptures to bring Him glory as a congregation of believers.


CONNECT

Between our worship services our CONNECT program offers classes for all ages on a variety of discipleship topics.  Our information booth in the lobby will give you more information about these opportunities.


Communion and Offering
Communion is offered the first Sunday of each month to all Christ followers. We provide a time of financial giving is an act of worship for those who call Refuge Church home and others who wish to participate.


Baptism and Baby Dedication

We baptize believers upon profession of faith in Christ usually followed by a meeting with one of our pastors.  Our youngest children are of great importance to us as well, so once a quarter we invite families with babies and young children who have not been dedicated to meet with a pastor and bring them before the congregation to be dedicated to the Lord.
