Weekend Worship

We gather for worship on Sunday mornings at the 11:11 a.m. service, where leaders and students worship together with the rest of the congregation. 

Worship Participation

Every weekend, high school students have the opportunity to participate in our Sanctuary worship by volunteering as an usher, greeter, or children's ministry leader. For more info, contact Cody Jensen at 949.574.2279 or

Refuge Focus Groups

Join us on Sunday mornings at 9:30 a.m. in the Youth Center for an in-depth Bible study. Focus Groups are a chance to dig deep into the Bible and ask the hard question with a group of your peers. For more info, contact Cody Jensen at 949.574.2279 or 

Follow us on Instagram and Snapchat at @refugesapres to be in the know for impromptu bike rides, hikes, and beach days!

Sonshine Houseboat Camp (High School) 

High school students are heading up to Lake Shasta for a fun week on the water August 7 - 12! Sonshine camp is a great opportunity for your student to take a break from the hectic nature of schedules and spend quality time with leaders, peers, and Jesus. Add to that a bunch of awesome water sports and you get a pretty great week.
Cost: $520

**IMPORTANT NOTE TO CAMP & TRIP POLICY: Due to the high rate of last minute cancellations and hectic nature of filling spots days before the trip, in order to sign up a student for a trip we will require the full payment at the time of signup, and the entire cost of the trip will now be non-refundable. Please, please, please be sure your student is able to attend before signing him or her up. If you have any questions, please contact Kristin Latourelle at


Students can serve in many different ways: they can be a leader in Children's Ministries, they can go on the Tecate Serve Trip, and they join the larger congregation throughout the year to serve locally and around the world.
