refuge STUDENT Ministries

Wednesday Nights 

For students in 6th through 12th grades. We meet in our Youth Center from 6:15-7:45 pm during the school year. We are blessed to have a gym where we kick off our nights with some fun. We worship, pray, and dig into God's Word in both large and small group settings. Small groups are important to us! We are intentional about incorporating regular service opportunities and special events and trips where students have opportunities to take next steps in their faith. 


Grades 6th-12th meet in the upper youth center during connect hour, which is 9:45-10:45 am on Sunday mornings. We start with a little hangout time: students can lounge on comfy couches, enjoy some donuts and orange juice, or play pool or foosball. Then we breakout into peer led groups where students spend 20 minutes praying together and memorizing Scripture together. We come back for a 30 minute bible study--we are working through Genesis this year. We also mix up our schedule occasionally with jeopardy review days or hot breakfasts.


We open the church from 7:00-10:00 pm for fun nights--$2 for gym games, NERF WARS, pizza and pop, and a gaming room set that's set up with Xbox One, Wii, and a PS4 (only rated E games). FUSION dates: Nov 1,  Jan 10, Feb 21, Apr 3, and May 8th

Summer Ministry

We'll continue to meet on most Wednesdays during the summer. We shake up our routine a bit in and meet at various locations with more of a focus on fun relational ministry--beaches, parks, game nights etc. Summer 2020, students have opportunity to go to Trout Lake Summer Camps, serve in urban ministry projects in Cincinnati and spend a day at the Ark Encounter, and enjoy a weekend camping trip.
