We are dedicated to creating a life giving space for students to be built up in the midst of a world that constantly seeks to tear us down. We believe in students because God believes in students!

Psalm 46:1 – God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.

The Refuge

The Refuge is our student ministry dedicated to seeing students experience the abundant life found in following Jesus!

When: We meet on Sunday nights from 5-7:30pm.

Where: In the Youth Barn at Pierce Chapel UMC.

What: On Sunday nights we gather as a youth ministry for fellowship, community, worship, and teaching! We have a time of dinner and games, followed by worship through song, teaching from Scripture that applies to the life of students, and finally we end the night with age and gender based small group discussion.
