Risen Refuge in Worship & Prayer
Worship & Pray with us
A vital part of the Christian Life and the health and growth of the church is joining together to worship God and to lift our prayers to him.
Sundays Starting at 10:30 am
We come together, as the children of God, to give praise and glory to our Wonderful God for all He has done. We Worship in Spirit & Truth. We pray to our Father as His children coming before His throne. We explore His Holy Word to grow in Faith, Understanding, and Love
Praise & Worship
Fridays Starting at 8 pm
It is such a blessing to return to our Friday evenings in the Sanctuary to join together for an informal time with God. The Sanctuary fills with music and voices lifted up to glorify God, and it fills with His Holy Spirit, creating an authentic space to encounter God.
Risen Refuge in Ministry
Called to Serve One Another & Our Community
The Christian walk is not one that is done alone. We walk with Christ and our brothers and sisters, and, with the Power of the Holy Spirit, we boldly proclaim the Truth of the Gospel through word and action.
Our Ministry areas are both to the saved and to the unsaved. In the church we are dedicated to help one another in the church grow in faith. Outside of the church our desire is to proclaim redemption offered by Christ Jesus through the Loving Grace of God to the Lost and the Lonely in Jersey City and surrounding areas.
Feeding The Needy
Every Saturday, the Risen Refuge meets at the church to prepare food and pray before heading out to Journal Square to meet those in need in Jersey City. We provide food, water, drinks, sometimes clothes and toiletries. But most of all we give love, compassion, prayer, and the Gospel of Christ Jesus.
It is important that every person in the Risen Refuge has a place where they can grow in their faith. In our Small Groups, groups of usually 5-9 people, individuals get to evaluate their own Christian walk, and get personal encouragement and prayer from their Christian brothers and sisters. They also get to be a part of each others spiritual journey, growing closer to God and stronger in their knowledge and faith.
More than a Building - We are a Church
A Welcoming Church at the Heart of Jersey City
We are a refuge for all persons who yearn for a love, peace, and forgiveness that can only be received by accepting the Gospel of Christ Jesus.
We are a place where those who don’t yet know Christ, come to discover there is a refuge for them in God, if they repent and accept the gift given by God through the crucifixion of His Son, Jesus.
We are a refuge, where the Risen Lord Jesus is glorified by those who are the children of God, and where these children grow in strength and faith, and are sent out into the world to proclaim the Gospel of Christ to the lost and the lonely.
