Our Sunday Gatherings are a safe place where our church family comes together to spend time with one another in worship of God. During our gatherings believers, nonbelievers & everyone in between are welcome to come, worship & learn more about God, as well as the Gospel message of Jesus Christ. We would love to have you join us on a Sunday.

Our services begin at 10:00am with a time of prayer and fellowship, and then continues at 10:30am with music and teaching.

What Should I expect?

Our Sunday services follow what we call a liturgy. Liturgy is a pattern or order for how something is to be done. For us here at Refuge, everything is about the Gospel. We pattern each aspect of our service around the Gospel story. We like to break that liturgy into four distinct parts:

  • Creation - We are Called to Worship through Scripture & music just as we were created to do at the beginning of creation.

  • Fall - We are Called to Confess our sin through scripture reading & song to lament our separation from God.

  • Redemption - We hear God's word preached & take part in the communion meal to be Assured of Christ's pardon for us.

  • Restoration - Lastly we are sent through song & benediction to go and be a blessing to our communities & our city.

Kids Ministry

Infants through Pre-K are welcome weekly in our nursery. Our Family Ministry is for ages Infant through 5th grade and changes every two weeks for K-5th. We desire as a church to have our little ones learn the rhythms of worship alongside Mom & Dad as well as observe the saints around them. However, we also hope to foster intentional discipleship, education, and opportunities for our children to learn from other family members of the body of Christ. In order to accomplish this goal, we rotate our Children’s ministry every two weeks. We hope this proves profitable for your family as they learn the rhythms of worship and trusting the body of Christ.

If you have questions about the rotation or would like to know what group is in service this coming week, please email us!

Children can be checked in at our family ministry area, just inside of our gathering. If you would like to pre-register your family, please fill out the form through the button below:

Ensuring Safety

– Parents receive a corresponding pick-up tag that is required to pick up your child.

– Every Kids worker goes through a thorough screening process before they may serve in our Family Ministry.
This includes faithful attendance, background check, membership interview and training.
