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!


If you have any questions about The Refuge, please contact Peter Shea (507-732-7889).






Missions at the Refuge:
We have sent teams with TeenServe for several years.  This year, the team will go to Becker, Minnesota the week of June 24-30.  During the week, they will be involved with 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 talking with one of the trip leaders.  

This summer's team has 3 youth and 3 adults on it. To find out how you can partner with the team in prayer or by contributing to team expenses, please contact the church office.

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.  To learn more about how you can spend the summer as a missionary in another country, visit the Royal Servants  website.

Several older teens will also be a part of New Life's Dominican Republic Mission Teams this coming July.
