Cabot UMC Refuge Student Wednesday Night Ministry
Renewal Ranch came and talked to our youth during Youth Wednesday Night Worship
on 10/30/19. Powerful testimonies!
At Cabot UMC we believe strongly that weekly corporate worship is vital to a healthy spiritual life no matter your age .  Refuge Worship, led by the youth praise band – The Refugees, is a weekly Wednesday night worship experience for both youth and young adults. Youth Worship is from 5:45 – 6:30PM in the Refuge, then we break into Youth Small Groups from 6:30-7:30PM. Below you will find more information about the Junior High and High School youth worship programs.  We are always happy to welcome energetic, enthusiastic role models to come be a part of our student ministries! Click on the logos below for more information on our mission trips.   


Junior Highcanoeing062412_LargeWide The Refuge Junior High School ministry is a place of acceptance where 7th and 8th graders can connect with God, their peers, and LifeGroup leaders committed to helping lead students closer to Jesus. In these two years, we are devoted to helping build a foundation of faith, character, and relationships.


High School

High School is exciting, trying, and at times very stressful! The Refuge helps high schoolers find a safe community in which to navigate these waters and prepare for what comes next. With everything we do, we are intentional about equipping and empowering high schoolers to continue to live as disciples of Jesus through college and young adulthood.

Mission Trips/Retreats

Throughout the year Refuge Student Ministries participate in mission trips and retreats.  We believe that serving others and spending time with other people of God are the best ways to understand the life to which Christ is calling us to live. Local, state-side, and international missions as well as fall retreats and summer camps allow our students to experience God in ways that are impossible sitting at home in front of their computers and video games.
Senior High Fall Retreat Oct. 12-13, 2019
