Refuge Student Ministry
Our Focus: The Students involved in Refuge Student Ministries would discover a faith of their own that will prepare them for a lifetime of ministry and influence.
We strive to see this happen by focusing on 3 principles:
SAFE — CONNECT — GROW
SAFE — We want to create an environment where you can come, be yourself and be welcomed. A safe place. We want to help navigate you through a journey of faith in Jesus Christ so that when you graduate out of our student ministry, you will have a solid foundation in Christ to help guide you in the future.
CONNECT — We want to be a part of a ministry where you can come and connect with God through solid Biblical teaching, meaningful interactions with caring adults and with one another in real, authentic, accountable relationships.
GROW — We desire to give you a place where you can grow in your personal walk with Christ through Bible studies focused on what you are going through and through opportunities for service.
Weekday Ministries Summary-
Refuge @ the Chapel @ 6:30 p.m. - The goal of Wednesday nights is to be the “open door” of our ministry as a student can walk in the door at anytime and quickly be assimilated into what we are doing. Our Wednesday night gathering purpose is to provide a student worship service with our student praise band leading our time of corporate worship. Our worship time is followed by various series and messages geared for students to connect with the Scripture on their level.
Sunday School @ 9:45 in the Chapel- The goal of Sunday mornings is for our students to study God’s Word in a small group setting with an adult small group leader facilitating this time. The material we are using in this small group time is Lifeway’s The Gospel Project. This material is very theologically driven and is giving both our teachers and students opportunities to grow “deep” as they study together.
D Groups @ 6 p.m. in the Grounds- The goal of Sunday night D groups is to provide some topical discipleship material for our students to help them deepen their personal walks with Christ. These studies are typically short in nature which provide us with the opportunity to study various issues that students may be going through. Right now we are going through the Book of Colossians.
