Who We Are
Refuge Church used to be called
"The Church of the Good Shepherd"
We changed our name, but we didn't mess with the stuff that has made this church great for over 40 years.
By any name, we are a community that welcomes anyone without watering down the message of Jesus.
What To Expect on a Sunday @ Refuge...
The weekend worship experience at Refuge Church is at 10am.
Each service lasts about an hour, with time for coffee and hanging out after.
Our "dress code" is typical Seattle - casual and full of unique people. Some people dress up, some people roll out of bed and come to church without a mirror check. So whether you're in Levis or Prada, you'll fit right in.
We teach the Bible in a clear way that connects with people's lives. Music and multi-media help us tie the changeless message of the Bible to our changing lives.
Children's Classes for Nursery through 6th Grade are available.
We're On A Mission from God...
Since the earliest days when we were planted as "the Church of the Good Shepherd" our vision has been crystal clear - to help spiritual wanderers become authentic followers of Jesus. Jesus gave us this mission as a divine imperative, and that command defines everything we do. We set the bar high, not resting until we become a biblically functioning community where there's transformational teaching, committed relationships, genuine prayer and worship, humble servanthood, help for the poor, and the ongoing miracle of people being revolutionized by Christ. And after almost 40 years, this goal still drives everything we do.
How do you fit in?
We want you to know that wherever you are on your spiritual journey, whether you're just beginning to investigate Christianity or you already have a mature relationship with Jesus, we're here to help you take the next step spiritually and to offer you a place where you can be as involved as you choose.
