Welcome to the official The Refuge Mobile App

This is the official app for The Refuge which is a healthy, growing community of people who don’t just “do” church but who seek to "be" the church.

We see people being changed, empowering them to continuously walk in the freedom and character of Christ. We see people being connected, enabling them to collectively accomplish the purpose for which they were made. We see people being challenged, equipping them to effectively demonstrate the power and the love of Christ to all they encounter.


We value every human being. (Mt. 18:14 & 25:45, 2 Peter 3:9)

We do church as a team, and mutually commit to excellence at every level. (Eph 4:11-16, Ps.78:72, Col. 3:17)

We are committed to creatively presenting the Gospel and to redeeming the arts. (1 Cor. 9: 22-23, Acts 17:22-34)

We believe spiritual growth and accountability happens in small groups. (Mk. 12: 29-31, Acts 2:44-47, Prov. 27:17)

We believe people were created to serve and are most fulfilled when doing so. (Mk. 10:45, Eph 2:10, Romans 12, 1 Cor. 12:14-20)

We courageously deal with conflict in a biblical manner, fiercely protect unity, and place high value on relationships. (James 1:2-3, 1 Peter 3:8-9, I Cor. 13:8, Rom. 16:17, Eph. 4:3)

We practice lifestyle evangelism and are passionate about seeing lives changed. (Pro. 11:30, John 1:43 – 45, John 4:28-30)

We are serious about identifying and training next-generation leaders. (2 Tim. 2:2, 1 Tim. 3:1, Titus 1:5-9, Ps. 78:6-7)

Awesome app

Great way to keep up if you can't make it to the service!

Keep Updated

While the app is great, it could be better. When I initially downloaded the app, sermon notes were made available along with an audio or video format of the service. These never get uploaded anymore. It's really disappointing. Also, the sermons aren't updated until several days after it has been preached. Again, when I initially downloaded the app, the sermon was posted (audio, video, and notes) by the end of the 9:00 A.M. Service.

This App has a lot of information and resources to grow in Christ

This is a great App. I really like being able to watch the service and taking notes hat I can later email!

May I suggest for future versions to be able to open the app when off of WiFi. Right now I can only open the App when I am connected to Wifi.
