What is “The Refuge?”
 
Homedale Assembly of God believes that there is a large need to encourage, inspire, and love on the youth of our community. The youth today have a lot of challenges to overcome and our prayer is that we can be a part of that process. We are in the process of praying into existence a safe, fun, loving place to share the light of the gospel to our youth.  The word Refuge in the bible means a place of resort and safety.  It is used in the bible as a dwelling place, a high tower, a shelter and a place of hope.
 
Several years ago we acquired the little church on the corner of W Montana Ave. and N. Main St.  “The Refuge” is currently being used every Sunday and Wednesday during renovations and has scheduled several special events for the community.
 
With the funds we have raised with the Car and Bike Show this has enabled us to put a fresh coat of paint on the exterior of the building.  We have updated plumbing, installed a new heater and a/c unit.  Things are happening! There is quite a bit of work to be done before we are completed with the renovations.  But we are well on our way, thanks to the community.  
 
Each week things are happening.  We are so thankful for all the volunteers that have given of their time.  Good things are happening, and better things are coming!!!!
