What to expect when you visit
At 10am the band takes the stage to lead the church in some modern worship songs that are easily understandable and relatable.  Not that traditional is bad, but there is no organ, no choir, and no hymnals. Instead our band led by electric guitar, bass, drums, and vocalists, lead us in a couple of upbeat praise songs, followed by a few contemplative slow worship songs designed to help us connect with God.  Some people raise their hands and praise God verbally as a biblical expression of worship. You can praise God as little or as much as you feel comfortable.

After the music there are a few announcements as the offering is taken.  First time visitors are encouraged not to make a financial offering, instead you are invited to fill out a Connect Card and toss it in the basket instead. This is so we can send you a welcome note in the mail.  Don’t worry, we won’t stalk you. The Connect Card is also a way for you to ask questions about us or sign up for things. Then a teaching pastor (most often Pastor Tom Ouweleen) will come and deliver a relevant and timely teaching from the Bible that you can apply to your real, everyday life. Often we wrap up with a song together if the message warrants it.  Otherwise there will be a prayer and dismissal. You are invited to hang out at the cafe after church and enjoy getting to know people over a cup of coffee and snacks.


How should I dress?
Casual dress.  Just be yourself.  No need to impress at Refuge.  Come as you are.

Service Times
Sunday Services – 10am
Kidz4Christ and Nursery provided during the service.

23672 Schoenherr, Warren, MI 48089
We are located on Schoenherr at Stephens (9 1/2 Mile), just South of Groesbeck.

We are located in an industrial area.  At first our building looks like a small factory.  That’s because it once was.  In 2012 we transformed a factory into a church with a cool industrial vibe.  Look for our sign on Schoenherr.  We try to keep a few parking spots open near the front doors, so please don’t be shy about taking a close spot.  We want you to feel welcome.
