REFUGE Student Ministry
REFUGE refers to the total youth ministry of the POA.  REFUGE consists of three major divisions: Junior High, High School, and College & Career.  REFUGE Student Ministry’s purpose is to make disciples by reaching every new generation of youth with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our student ministry is housed in the GAMC (G. A. Mangun Center) and Family Life Center (FLC). Click here to download a Refuge Consent Form
REFUGE - Junior High
REFUGE Junior High is for specifically for students in grades 6, 7, and 8.  We meet each Sunday at 9:00AM and on Wednesday evening at 7:00PM in the REFUGE Junior High room, which is  located on the second floor of the the Family Life Center.  There are tons of activities and gatherings for our Junior High students to enjoy.

REFUGE - High School
REFUGE High School is for students in ninth through twelfth grades.  We hosts a weekly Sunday School at 9:00AM in the FLC (Family Life Center) and student worship service on Wednesday evenings at  7:00 pm in the GAMC (G.A. Mangun Center) Auditorium.  This unique service features student worship leaders and is supported by a student team that provides everything  from music and media to sound, lights, and cameras.  With contemporary music, high energy, and timeless messages, REFUGE High School services are geared to the high  school student.  REFUGE is a vibrant student ministry connecting with youth not only in  Sunday School or a POA Wednesday service, but through group gatherings, outings, activities and events.
