Why we're here

How do we work?

God has revealed himself to us through the written words of the Bible and through the example of the Living Word, Jesus Christ.  

It is our goal to teach students:  Who God is, What he has done, How he sees us, and How we should live.

We believe that a mark of discipleship is doing the work to integrate the ancient wisdom and teachings of the Bible into our modern life.

We accomplish this by:

 

Slowly reading the Bible

Worshipping through songs and service

Sharing Stories to one another

Asking questions

Guiding students towards gospel relationships

Praying together

:

What does it look like?

We use a threefold model of discipleship.

The Passionate Heart

REFUGE: Wednesday nights 6-8 pm

At REFUGE, we sing songs to God about what he has done and our relationship with him.  We have discussions about what it looks like to be a disciple of Jesus. and we learn how to develop relationships that last. 

The Informed Mind

Mosaic: Sunday mornings 9-10 am

At Mosaic, we focus on Bible study and how to read the Bible as well as practicing the Jesus way

The Active Body

Small Groups: Wednesdays and Sundays

We Believe that Small groups are where Gospel relationships are forged and where paradigms are challenged.  When it comes to going out into the world with the gospel of Jesus our small groups are the leading edge.

The 3 Rules

At Refuge we have 3 rules that govern our behavior and attitudes torwards each other.

Be Honest

Be honest with yourself and be honest with others.  The Christian walk is lifelong and difficult, it requires a commitment to scriptures that are ancient and strange.  When we’re honest in our questions and our struggles as well as our triumphs we open ourselves to deep relationships with each other and with God.

Be Gracious 

To be gracious to others means we extend understanding and patience to everyone. We will not make jokes at the expense of others.  We will not put others down. We will seek to include all who attend. We will respect others when they’re being honest. This also means that we will be good stewards of the building and resources. 

 

Be Present

We’re not here to waste your time.  If you attend we expect and encourage you to participate. To be present means that we will try to avoid and resist things that would take our attention away from what's happening in the present.
