 God, Our Refuge from the Storm

Psalm 46:1-3: "God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, Even though the earth be removed, And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though its waters roar and be troubled, Though the mountains shake with its swelling." The truth of the matter is that God, our Lord Jesus Christ is the refuge we need from this world of lies and destruction. The problem is that most people, especially young people, don't know where to go to find this refuge and they get sucked into the world, going on a never ending roller coaster ride of confusion, lost hope. Today's youth are desperately seeking after something to believe in; but do not always know where to look. The Refuge is a God inspired ministry run by truly blessed people who have been down those dark roads, seen and experienced what drugs and alcohol can do, understand what it feels like to be lost and without answers and searching for hope. We at The Refuge don't have all the answers to life's problems, but we know SomeOne who does, His name is Jesus and He's waiting with arms wide open to be just the refuge you need from that raging storm in your life! Come join us and see what God is doing! We are open most Saturdays 6:00p.m. - 10:00p.m. Special events are listed on the events page. If you have any questions or would like to sponsor this ministry, contact us ( We are located in the old middle school cafeteria in Cherokee, AL.
