Our hope is that your missional community will develop into an extended family environment and one way we want to do that is through family meals. At family meals, we want members to use this time to eat, pray, and share life experiences with fellow church members and outside guests. We want our missional communities regularly partake in family meal each month because it's a regular practice for most families.
For those who desire to "go deeper" into the bible, we have what we call Life Groups at The Refuge Church. We want our missional communities to gather at Life Groups with the purpose of studying the bible, obeying what we have learned, confessing sins to one another, and praying for opportunities to share Christ with our city. Our hope is that these groups will not only deepen your knowledge of scripture, but also help you spur one another on to obey God's Word.
At The Refuge Church, we want our missional communities to intentionally create a time and place for our non-Christian friends to become a part of our community. We want our missional communities to create a neutral space that isn't a Sunday worship service so that non-Christian friends can see and relate to Christians in a relaxed environment and possibly be drawn to learn more about God's love for people.
