What are COMPASS Groups?
Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 says “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: if one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!” God designed us to be joined with others: to learn, grow, and do life together.
Our COMPASS Groups meet during the school year and help us stay connected to each other. We were created for relationships, and doing life together helps us to know others and be known by others. More details about this year’s COMPASS will be available at the end of the summer.

We know that leaving your new baby for the first time can be overwhelming. The volunteers in our Nursery have been chosen for this age group because of their love for babies and their training to care for all the needs of your infant. While you are attending our adult service, your child will receive incredible care and a great experience, just like you will receive!
We hope that the following information will help you and your baby have a great experience on Sunday morning. Please bring diapers, bottles, pacifiers, and any special blankets that will soothe your baby through the morning. Label all items that belong to your baby.
For parents of infants that are fussy and don’t want to be in the Nursery, we have created a private area behind the Worship Center where you can sit comfortably and still see and hear the service!
In Kidztown, ages 4 – 1st grade, we use interactive and fun stories/activities to teach preschoolers that God made them, God loves them, & Jesus wants to be their friend forever. Every Sunday morning after the music (~10:40 am), they have free play, prayer time, game/craft, Bible story, and snack with caring adult leaders.
In KidStuf we believe that the Bible is never boring, that good leaders always care, and that we can have fun on Sunday mornings. For elementary school kids, all of a sudden life begins to move really fast. But no matter how fast life gets, we have a God who’s really BIG. To help students keep God as a priority as they grow, we emphasize three things: we can trust God no matter what, we need to make wise choices, and we need to treat others the way we want to be treated! KidStuf is for 2nd - 5th graders and meets every Sunday morning after the music (~10:40 am) in the LP Kids Center (lower level).
Outlet Group - Middle School
Grades 6th-8th can be a confusing and exciting time and FUSION Student Ministries is tailored specifically to help them sort it all out. In a fun and relaxed environment students can explore their relationship with Jesus and how that can influence every decision they make! Fusion meets every Sunday morning after the music (~10:40 am) in the lower level.
We believe it is important for teens to connect with all generations in the church so that they feel a part even after high school. Therefore, high school teens (9th-12th grade) meet bi-weekly with their youth leaders during the morning service for instruction, interaction, and fun. We also encourage them to participate in a Compass group and serve regularly in ministry opportunities.
