Compass Children's Church

antioch community church in beverly kids ministry

Pointing Each Child To Life’s True North, Jesus.

Compass classrooms are dynamic and fun environments where kids can encounter God, be discipled, and be trained to live on mission. Each Saturday, your child will learn about the Bible and how it relates to Jesus in a creative and age-appropriate way. The lessons are fun and approachable and are taught by committed volunteers who love to serve Jesus by serving you and your kids. We also want to equip parents to help their kids grow in their relationship with Jesus throughout the week.
