At Refuge Church, we want to help you and your family grow closer to Jesus through age-appropriate worship experiences, small groups and opportunities to serve our in communities and around the world. Below you'll find just a glimpse of ways you can connect and be a part of the Refuge Church family. 

Refuge Kids

Refuge Kids offers a place where children from birth through fifth grade can discover and develop a passion for Jesus in age-appropriate environments. Through worship, teaching, and a variety of fun activities, children are exposed to God’s Word and challenged to grow in their relationship with Jesus.

Refuge Kids services are fully staffed with leaders who are committed to teaching and ministering to children. You can be confident that your child is well-cared for and having a great time learning about Jesus while you worship.

Refuge Students

At Refuge Church, we are devoted to seeing a generation of students who are connected in a life-giving relationship with Jesus, and planted and thriving in the local church. Refuge Student small groups are the connection point to authentic discipleship, new friendships, and tons of fun. In good times and bad, small groups are the source of life-giving relationships and support. 

Refuge Students meet every Wednesday at 6:15pm at our Athens and Huntsville Campuses. 

Small Groups

Refuge Church Small Groups are your source of friendship and support. They are your key to developing connections with those who share your interests or people who are dealing with similar life issues. Small groups are an opportunity to reach out to others, while growing in your walk with the Lord. Groups will meet once a week in homes, businesses, restaurants, or other locations throughout the city. The groups change and begin again three times a year, so you have the opportunity to try out different ones. You’ll never fully experience all that Refuge Church has to offer until you connect in a small group!


At Refuge Church, we love to serve our communities! We partner with various organizations locally and globally to make a difference in the lives of people. This past year we've partnered with organizations like: Refuge Community Center, His Way, CASA, Caring House, HEALs Clinics, Women's Resource Center of Athens, and more. 

Dream Team 

The Dream Team is a group of incredible people that have discovered their gifts and passions and are actively serving in them. From creating a comfortable environment by serving on the greeter team, to waving in the parking lot, to running sound for one of our services, to ministering to children, every role at Refuge Church is important. 

The Dream Team is all about one thing: serving God by serving His people. If you desire a life filled with joy and growth and community, come join the team!
