Compass Children's Church
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 Sunday, 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.
We believe God designed your home to be the center of your children’s spiritual development. You have the awesome responsibility and opportunity to be the most influential person in your children’s lives! We encourage all parents to cultivate family devotional times in their homes, and model Christian faith for your kids. First and foremost, we desire parents to be growing in their own personal relationship with God, and to become secure in your identity in Christ.
We encourage you to make every effort to stay connected in small groups (lifegroup, accountability, or discipleship groups) as we believe this is an effective way to spur you on in your personal relationship with God. This centers your life and enables you to pour into your children from a place of confidence in your identity.
Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."
Matthew 19:14 (NIV)

Online Resources for Parents
Our Compass Director Ben Hanchett has graciously taken the time to provide resources for families so that you can be equipped to have your very own, at home, Compass Children's Ministry session! Each week Ben will provide a suggested lesson plan with interactive activities that are age-appropriate. We hope that these will be times of Christ-centered encouragement for you and your children. Please know that there is no pressure whatsoever to use any of these resources but we wanted to share some ideas just in case you were looking for additional ways to engage your kids with the Lord.
