Our Middle School After-School Program (MAP) offers 6th, 7th and 8th graders a great place to hang out after school. Some days are spent at the church and some are spent at the Refuge. There is always a delicious snack and something to do for your students after school. MAP is run by our 7.8 Ministry Coordinator, Lynell Kennedy.
