First Christian Church, 5230 Broadway Ave. in Great Bend, is offering a new service called “Refuge” to people that have strayed away from God and have not been to church in some time. The service is designed to help people find their way back.
“We started this new service to reach out to people that moved away from God and don’t go to church,” the Rev. Joshua Leu said. “Statistics show that there are over 8,000 people in the Great Bend Area that do not go to church for different reasons or they do not know Christ. This new contemporary service is designed for them.”
The service is different from a traditional service, Leu said. It is in its own room of the church and it offers a coffee bar/club feel to it, even though it is a church service.
“It is a church that does not feel like a church,” Leu said. “We have live music, low lighting and tables to sit at. A really relaxed atmosphere. We want people to feel comfortable while attending the service.”
Everyone is welcome to attend the service, which starts at 11 a.m. every Sunday at the church.
