Refuge Ranch hosts day of prayer and blessing

We are part of The Trust Project.

BYRON — Refuge Ranch, a nonprofit equine ministry dedicated to youths 4-17, is hosting a day of prayer and blessing from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at the High Highview Equestrian Center, 7706 Salem Road SW.

"This will be a day dedicated to prayer and asking for God's blessing over the farm, the horses, the volunteers and the students that will be coming to Refuge Ranch Ministries' sessions this year," said Executive Director Stephanie Bruggeman. "We welcome all community members to join us for a morning they won't forget and a light lunch to follow on grounds."

The goal of the ministry is to provide a safe place for children and horses to heal and grow. An adult mentor pairs a child with an activity or horse that will encourage them toward personal growth and healing any psychological scars.
