Do you feel stuck in unhealthy patterns of behavior or relationships? Have you experienced trauma or loss?

At Refuge, we find healing in community through a transformative process of self-examination, sharing, encouragement and accountability. We strive to be a safe place where our pain and our struggles are met by Christ’s love and grace. 

In the fall and spring we offer closed groups of 4-8 people that make a commitment to each other to meet for 13-18 weeks, maintain confidentiality, and complete homework assignments. We find trust, support, and accountability walking with others who are experiencing similar life struggles. Together we work through a Biblically-based curriculum of healing, transformation, and grace.

Interested in potentially facilitating a group?  Refuge facilitators help provide hospitality, safety and accountability within their group while continuing their own healing process. This is not counseling, it’s community.  Facilitator training is about to begin, starting February 2, meeting every Sunday in February at 10:30am, Central City Campus, Ankeny building room 204. Come check it out. All are welcome!
