Welcome to Refuge

Special Events

Jesus Center Service Day – March 3, 5:45 a.m. 

People from BPC usually serve breakfast at the Jesus Center on the first Sunday of the month. In March, Underground and Refuge will step up to the plate! Sign ups will open soon, so in the meantime check your calendar and decide what shift to take:
Prep starts at 5:45 a.m. (6-7 people).
Serving starts at 7:30 a.m. (6 people), accompanied by serving drinks (4 people).
Breakfast service stops at 8:50, at which point the cleaning crew begins so we are done before 9:30 a.m.


Refuge Winter Retreat 

Last February, Refuge spent a fantastic weekend at La Porte Union Hotel near Lassen National Forest. In the wake of all the chaos and trauma of the Camp Fire, we think getting away and spending quality time with God and our friends is all the more important. Join us in this elegant, historic building (which we get all to ourselves!) for a time to renew and refresh. Depart: 3:30 p.m. Friday February 8 (Meet at BPC at 3:00 p.m.), return: ARound 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, February 10. We’ll provide transportation, Friday’s dinner through brunch on Sunday, and two nights at this unique, exclusive hotel. Cost: $150.
