The Refuge

"God is our refuge and strength,

    a help always near in times of great trouble."--Psalms 46:1

The youth ministry at DFUMC has adopted the name "The Refuge" to show that it is a safe space to learn and to grow together with other students.  We are not afraid of tough questions here and many of our meetings are discussion based so that we can help students understand the Word of God better.  We also have a lot of fun at The Refuge.  Crazy games, fun events and retreats, and time just to hang out with other Christians are all things you will find here.  We want The Refuge house to be YOUR space to live, to learn, and to grow together!

Illuminate Worship Service

We love worshipping with our larger church family!  That's why, once a month, our youth and adults come together to worship.  This service gives adults a look into what goes on in our youth ministry and allows a space for people who simply want to worship in a contemporary style.  This isn't a youth service, but many of our youth are involved in the band.  We see this as the Refuge's way to lead in the charge of modern worship of a great big God!

Join us every 4th Sunday (unless otherwise noted here!)
