REFUGE at Crossway Fellowship is a group of jr & senior 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 takes root and transforms more lives for his glory.
Currently, we are studying Spiritual Disciplines, The Gospel, and How to have relationships as disciples of Jesus.
As disciples of the Lord Jesus, we understand that we are called to discipline ourselves for godliness.
Also, we know that the Gospel is the central theme of the Christian life; living under the Gospel's authority and proclaiming the Gospel is our sacred calling.
Lastly, we know that we have been created to live in community. God gave men and women the blessing to have the desire to know each other, and He has blessed humanity with the passion that a man and a woman will have the desire to grow in an intimate relationship with each other. Therefore, as disciples of Jesus, we want Biblical foundations to have relationships that will glorify the Lord.
REFUGE meets weekly on Wednesday nights, 6:30 pm-8:30 pm. 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!
