At Refuge Church we are building God a house and people a place of refuge. It is our desire that Refuge would be a crossroad where people from every background and experience can meet to encounter God. No matter where you are on your faith journey, there is a place at Refuge Church for you. This page will introduce you to our church family and let you know what we are all about. Also, audio files of Pastor Matt’s messages are available to challenge and inspire you. Whether you are a long-time believer, or you’re simply investigating a relationship with Jesus, you are always welcome at Refuge!
Services at Refuge generally focus on three main components:
-A time of contemporary worship
-A time of corporate prayer
-A message brought from the Word of God followed by the opportunity to respond in prayer to what was preached
Because we are a Pentecostal church, you will find our worship to be very free as people take their liberty to worship God fully from their heart. Our services are always open to the Gifts of the Spirit and the leading of the Holy Spirit. At times there will be prophetic words given, also tongues and interpretations, words of wisdom, and words of knowledge, as well as other Gifts of the Spirit. Generally there is an opportunity to receive prayer on an individual basis for specific needs during the Sunday evening service.
There is no dress code at Refuge. Members of our congregation wear everything from jackets, ties, and dresses to t-shirts and jeans based on individual comfort and preference.
We encourage all who decide to make Refuge their church family to go through this important process. Many of the volunteer position of ministry at Refuge require church membership.
Those who are interested in membership attend an eight week course taught by Pastor Matt that familiarizes them with the vision, organization, and doctrine of the church as well as the commitments of membership. Upon completion of the course those who desire may submit their names for membership to Pastor Matt and the board of the church. Those names are reviewed, considered, and welcomed into membership during a monthly meeting of the Pastor and board. For more information on membership or the membership class schedule, please contact the church office.
