REFUGE at Crossway Fellowship is a group of jr & sernior high school students devoted to following Jesus, studying the word and pursuing one another in community. We wholeheartedly want to know Christ as our Savior and to make him known to others. We submit to the total truth of Scripture, and we believe time spent studying the bible deepens our understanding of God, grows us spiritually and encourages our faith. We want to make disciples—to equip young men and women with the truth of who Jesus is, what he has done, and what that means for us—and see that understanding take root and transform more lives for his glory.
Currently, we are studying a series called DISCIPLES FOR HIS GLORY!
We understand that our natural tendency is to live for ourselves, but not to live for God’s glory. We usually relate being a Christian or a disciple with doing things. We typically assume that we are better Christians in relation to how much we do, more than who we are. What we do is strictly related to who we are, but what we do is, at times, not related to who we are. In Christian circles, it is common to see people who know how to do the right thing most of the time, but they aren’t what they portray to the exterior world.
Most of the Christian failures or frustrations have to do with the inner world, the personal sin, the internal motivations, the lack of passion for something that, in theory, should be the most crucial thing in our lives.
REFUGE meets weekly on Wednesday nights, 7 pm-9pm. Come for a time of games, worship and study of the gospel. All Jr & Sr. High School students are welcome.
As Refuge leaders, we are first and foremost committed to the authority of Scripture. We believe that God has, in His grace, allowed us to get to know him better, serve Him, and glorify Him every day. We see ourselves not as activity coordinators or as entertainers of a youth group program but as shepherds of God's people. We believe that meaningful relationships are essential in the development of becoming more like Christ and we as a team are eager to come alongside the youth in a discipleship relationship. We believe it is essential to provide godly and qualified leaders to both girls and boys. For this reason we emphasize leadership that is provided by both. Refuge pursues building up men and women of God that will glorify Him with everything they have!
