Every Wednesday night at 7:00 p.m., senior and junior high students gather for a time of sharing and growth. Guests are always welcome at the Refuge. On the first Wednesday of the month, the Refuge meets at 6:30 p.m. at New Life Church, featuring a meal, recreation, and special presentations. The Refuge is led by a group of adult leaders who are committed to seeing young people follow Jesus!

Missions at the Refuge:
We have sent teams with TeenServe for several years.  This year, the team we are helping to bring TeenServe to our area!!

The week of July 7-13, 200-300 teens from across the country will be based at the high school in Pine Island and working on homes in the surrounding towns.  They will be helping needy residents with home repairs, painting, cleanup, etc., as well as have many opportunities for worship, growth, and bible study.  You can learn more about TeenServe by visiting their website, or call the church office at  824-3019.

Several young people from the Refuge have also served as summer missionaries in places like Kenya, Nepal, and Scotland with an organization called Royal Servants.  This summer we will have young adults traveling to Greece, Nepal, and Israel! To learn more about how you can spend the summer as a missionary in another country, visit the Royal Servants  website.
