Meet Pastor David Bliss
We are so glad you have taken a moment to check us out. Refuge Church (formerly named First Assembly) has been a major part of the spiritual landscape of this community for more than 60 years. Refuge Church is affiliated with the Assemblies of God, one of the largest denominations in the world seeking to flow in the full expression of the Holy Spirit.
We maintain a full-service Prayer Center, staffed to receive needs phoned in from around the world and here at home. We have 12 prayer stations at which one can sit and literally pray the heart of God around the world. The Prayer Center is the heartbeat of our church.
Beginning in the fall after our summer break, every Wednesday night you will find the church alive with a program for children, Pastor Dave’s Bible study called, Revelation – A Study of the End Days. All the activities are designed to meet the needs of every member of the family.
Preaching the Gospel to the ends of the earth is not just a slogan. In fact we give tens of thousands of dollars every year that represent nearly every corner of the earth, including our city.
The church also owns and operates Manteca Christian Pre-School. They have been serving this community for over twenty-five years.
Please feel free to call our office for additional information or questions regarding our church. We would consider it an honor to have you visit and look forward to meeting you in the near future.
