Series Starting May 30th
Hope inspires us and helps us persevere during tough times, while giving us peace that surpasses all understanding. Throughout history, brave men and women have inspired others through hope—hope of a better life, hope for civil rights or liberties, hope for freedom. From Martin Luther King Jr. to Rosa Parks, to Joshua of the Old Testament or the apostle Paul—these individuals have made bold statements that have declared hope. There was perhaps no greater beacon of hope in history, however, than John the Baptist. He proclaimed to the people the greatest message of hope humankind would ever know—Jesus Christ in the flesh, coming as their Savior.
In this powerful six-week series titled Forerunner, people are invited to discover the “behind-the- scenes” story of how John the Baptist was prophesied for centuries to be the forerunner for Jesus Christ. Each week of the series explores passages from the Old Testament, which foreshadow not only the forerunner’s coming in John the Baptist, but also the coming of Messiah and how the two are intertwined.
This series will help show us how to declare hope to their communities by serving as a forerunner for Christ. Just like John’s ministry pointed to Jesus, so should our lives point to Christ.
Starting May 30th, Compass holds one service at 10am.
We also stream our service on Facebook Live and are posted on YouTube and right here on our website.

We look to God and His word for direction in our life. That's our Compass. It's a simple and singular focus that joins our hearts and minds together. We don't follow cultural norms, church trends, denominational rules or media pressures. We just open up the Bible, some for the 10,000th time (it never gets old), many for the first time (which is exciting), and we see a message of love and forgiveness that is personified in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Join us! The view is spectacular!
It's amazing how the truth of God's word penetrates every area of your life, regardless of your age. So, we listen. We listen to how God created and designed this world to function. We listen to God's perfect plan for relationships. We listen to how God cares about your future, not your past. And what we hear is life-changing.
We know that our faith isn't about how much we know, but how well we love... and we LOVE to serve others! Whether it's locally, serving families in our church or organizations like the Boys & Girls Club, Shepherd's House or the Pregnancy Resource Center; or globally serving families and kids in Mexico, India, Africa, Honduras and Hungary, we strive to be "beautiful feet" (Isaiah 52:7) to those around us.
We take God very seriously, but don't take ourselves or our opinions too seriously. The Bible tells us that "joy is our strength" and we want to be strong. If you feel beat down by life, maybe a little weary, we understand that crying is sometimes a good place to start, but it's not where God wants you to end. You won't find a bunch of frowns or wagging-fingers at Compass, just people who are thrilled to welcome you and put a smile on your face.
We don't just meet for Sunday services, we do life together. We know that everybody needs a place to belong, a place to feel loved and valued, a place to build lasting friendships. We're thankful that Compass has become that place for so many.
