Refuge (Youth) Update - March 30

Mar 30/2020


Dear Refuge Student Community,

 we hope you are all doing well out there in isolation. We want to let you know that the Refuge team is here to support you as a family. Please feel free to connect with us in how we can pray for you, support you, provide resources, connect with students or anything else.

Just because we aren't able to gather in physical spaces does not mean we are not available. 

During this time, we have both, online Refuge services and online Small Group experiences. I encourage all of you to engage in both avenues of connection.

Here is the information for both...

Online Refuge Service

Last week we launched our first online Refuge service.

In case you missed it, here is the information:

The service will be uploaded every Wednesday by 12:00 pm.

Online Refuge Small Groups

Refuge Small Groups will be meeting every week, online!

If you have questions about student small groups please contact Sydney Shymko at or call/text 780-619-8715.

Here are the details...


Groups meet ONLINE weekly on Mondays at 7:00 pm
