What to Expect

Many who walk through our doors do so with trepidation. We’ve all been there. Just be YOU and you’ll fit right in. You’ll find those who have all but given up on church. You’ll find those who know what it’s like to deconstruct. You’ll find those who have been in a church their entire lives. And those stepping through the doors of a church for the first time.

What do I do with my kids?

Parents are welcome to have their children with them in the church service, but if you choose, your kids can join “big church” as we sing and then break away for Refuge.Kids to learn about Jesus in interactive, fun and age-appropriate ways just catered to their age group.  Best of all check-in begins at 5pm, so you can drop off the kids and just relax for a bit before the service begins.

What can I expect during the service?

We generally open with songs led by our worship team (all volunteers).  This can range from a full band and multiple singers, to a an intimate acoustic setting.  The songs range from modern worship songs to vintage hymns.  There is no one style of music to praise God, so we believe in being eclectic and inclusive.

Between the music there will be a message (sermon) that works verse by verse through books of Bible, teaching how the entire story fits together and points to the true hero … Jesus.  We’ll typically close the sermon with a few announcements, and then many stay around to talk with each other (but many also bolt for the door, and head to dinner).

What do I wear?

Clothes would be good.  Whether you look like you’re headed out for a night on the town, or sporting flip flops and shorts, you’ll find lots of people dressed like you.

Can I check Refuge out online before I come in person?

Absolutely.  The links are below.  You can watch us LIVE (at 5:30pm) on Facebook, or catch the edited version later on YouTube.
