This past Saturday night, on our live stream virtual gathering, we looked at the five meals in history (from a Christian) perspective that changed everything. Five meals we can look at that we can draw a line in the sand and see a clear “world before” and the “world after”.
Due to the coronavirus, Refuge has been holding our gatherings as a Live Stream together. Below you can find a video recording of that live stream. This week I had the opportunity of teaching the Parable of the Talents from Luke 19 as we compared how three servants to a king invested his resources, and what implications this had for us modern day servants of King Jesus.

This is the audio from our live stream, the first week we were unable to gather together. Since I know some couldn’t attend, or maybe some want to give it a second listed, I thought it appropriate to post. We talked about the three pillars of Refuge; deep study, deep relationships and deep service and ideas for continuing that during our quarantine and this pandemic. We also shared this link refuge.church/virus where we will be sharing all things Refuge as it relates to this situation, and included a link for those who need financial assistance, or would like to donate to help those who need financial assistance.
Saturday night at Refuge Church, special guest speaker Scott Morrison continued our look at the book of Luke. In this story, a paralyzed man is brought to Jesus for healing. Initially, the crowd was too big to get close to him. So do they give up? No, they get creative and make it happen. This is what we’re supposed to do for our friends who don’t know Jesus.
This week at Refuge Church, lead teacher Brian talked about the story of the Prodigal son. This is one of the most famous parables of Jesus, but as it turns out, there are 2 prodigal sons in this story. What does this mean, and why should we care? Check it out.
At Refuge Church on Saturday night, Lead Teacher Brian talked about the story of Jesus showing up to a funeral of a widow’s only son. Death is a natural part of life, but we see Jesus bend the natural, and bring her son back from the dead. It brings up an interesting question….should we pray for and expect this kind of miracle in our lives? Or was this just something that was done in Jesus’ day?
Saturday night at Refuge, Brian and Jaime brought us a message about healing and faith. Multiple times in the New Testament, we see Jesus heal someone in response to their faith. Does that mean that we are entitled to healing, as Christians? Check it out, and enjoy this acoustic music set.
Luke 7 & Daniel 3
This past Saturday night at Refuge, Lead Teacher Brian brought us the story of Jesus at a dinner party with a bunch of religious people. In this story, an uninvited guest shows up….the town prostitute. If the religious people were right, Jesus would have condemned this woman. Check it out, as we continue our series on the book of Luke.
Saturday night at Refuge Church, Lead Teacher Brian talked about something we can all relate to….Food. Jesus shared meals with people from a lot of different backgrounds. The religious people of his day were offended that he would eat with such ‘Scum’. Sharing a meal with someone can be a very intimate thing, and God wired us to be relational.
This past Saturday night at Refuge Church, we had our annual Christmas service to remember the birth of the Messiah. Jesus’ birth was the beginning of the change of EVERYTHING. But in our culture, it seems to stop right there. What is Christmas all about anyway? Well, it’s about a lot more than just a baby being born. After all, the baby was born…to die. Grab some hot cocoa and give it a listen….
