Joy to the world

Hillsong Worship

Deep Study.  Deep Relationships.  Deep Service.  The three pillars of ongoing discipleship at Refuge.Church as we allow the Holy Spirit to mold and shape our hearts.

This past week, we shook things up, to be sure what we do as we gather is not a show.  It was a beautiful (and at times a little messy) time of discussion and working through God’s word TOGETHER.  Everyone participated.  Building one-another up.  Sharing.  Learning.  Flexibility.  Everyone given an opportunity to speak.  Organic and emerging worship.  Mutual edification.

This week, while doing our more traditional worship gathering, I still want to encourage you to read and study the text in advance.  I’ve included some information below to help get you started.

Bible Text

Matthew 6:19-34
