The Refuge is our weekly outreach to those in need in our area. Starting October 6th, on Thursdays from 2:00pm to 4:00pm we open our doors to provide a personal connection and a light meal for all those in need. There are many ways to get involved that are always appreciated at The Refuge. Contact Pastor Nate Huber ([email protected]) for more info.
Connection: It is important for us that The Mission Church is a safe, friendly environment where people can build trust and new relationships. If you enjoy talking to people, hearing their stories, or just playing a game, you are a welcome fit for this team at The Refuge. We spend time with the people who come in from 2:00pm to 5:00pm, but any amount of time that fits your schedule is perfect.
Cooking Food: If you would like to help you can sign up to donate part of a meal or simply prepare something of your choosing and deliver it to church for The Refuge. Go to our Events Page and pick a Refuge Thursday you’d like to sign up for!
Serving Food: There is always a need for people to serve behind the counters. We serve food from 2:00pm to 4:00pm, and there are always dishes to do, coffee and lemonade to be made, as well as other odd jobs. Whether you can stay for an hour or four, any amount of help is greatly appreciated.
Setting Up & Tearing Down: If you still feel called to help The Refuge, but worry about cooking or people skills or simply don’t have a ton of time, help setting up or tearing down is crucial. From 12:30pm to 2:00pm food and games are set out and 4:00pm to 5:00pm we clean up and get everything put back together. These responsibilities are always best when shared. Many hands make light work.
