Potential Merger with Leesville Baptist

UPDATE: This past Sunday, our congregations voted unanimously to commit to pursuing this merger. So, while final details and documents are worked on for a final vote, our congregations will continue to meet together! Our prayer is that this process will be complete by Easter Sunday!

Refuge Church is prayerfully considering merging with Leesville Baptist Church. As part of this process, we will be leading services at Leesville Baptist Church. We're excited to see how the Lord leads our congregations through this process! And, we would love for you to join us!

This past June, Leesville Baptist Church reached out to Refuge Church asking if we might be interested in merging with their church body. They let us know that they are a 150 year old church, but have been struggling with a declining membership and have about 14 people attending each Sunday.

After a series of initial meetings, we felt that this may be an answer to prayer for both churches. We're a church plant in need of a building and they are an established church with a building. They are currently without a pastor or staff, and Refuge is blessed with 4 elders and 3 staff members. Also, we have both sensed the need for additional volunteers to accomplish all that we desire in our communities for the glory of Christ.

We would love to have you join us as we seek the Lord's will together and as we together strive to breath new life into this strategic location in North Raleigh! We pray that Christ is glorified, the lost are reached with the gospel, and the saints would grow in their faith through this potential merger. May all glory be to God!
