invitation to community

the refuge is a mission center and christian community dedicated to helping hurting and hungry people find faith, hope, and dignity alongside each other.

we love to throw parties, tell stories, find hope, and practice the ways of Jesus as best we can.

we're all hurt or hungry in our own ways.
we are old, young, poor, rich, conservative, liberals, single, married, gay, straight, evangelicals, progressives, book-smart, street-smart, certain, doubting, hurting, thriving.

yet Christ's love binds our differences together in unity.

at the refuge, everyone is safe, but no one is comfortable.
we're at different places on our journey but we share a guiding story, a sweeping epic drama called the bible.

we find faith as we follow Jesus and share a willingness to honestly wrestle with God and our questions and doubts.

we find dignity as God's image-bearers and strive to call out that dignity in one another.

we all receive, we all give.

a blessing for our neighborhoods

see, I will create new heavens and a new earth.
be glad and rejoice forever in what I am creating;
for I am about to create broomfield, federal heights, arvada, littleton, thornton, erie, and lafayette as a joy, and its people as a delight.
no more shall sighing, sorrow, and police sirens be heard there.
no more shall it happen that parents or children are taken from each other, that the poor and vulnerable are exploited…
