Whether you’re a guy in college, single, married, or an empty nester, this group is for you! We’ll be doing a great Bible study, but we’re also looking to head out to our local community and serve. It’s our goal to put our faith into action and to put our “gather, grow, and go” philosophy to work as we volunteer together as a team of men.

Ministry Center Group – Childcare provided

Parenting can be a difficult task even under the best of circumstances. But today many children grow up in homes with single parents, blended families, and other non-traditional households. It truly takes a village to raise healthy, Godly children. Our goal is to provide each other with support and knowledge to create healthy relationships within our families.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHY DO COMPASS GROUPS EXIST?

A group is made up of people who share similar interests, are in the same stage of life, or want to learn from each other. Groups get together for all sorts of reasons, whether it is playing video games, spending quality time, cooking a meal, or studying the Bible together. The point is not what you meet about, it is that you are regularly meeting with people and living in community as God designed you to do.

WHAT IS A COMPASS GROUP?

It is through life together that our problems become smaller and God uses others to bring support and encouragement to our lives. Even when you might not realize you need it, your small group will quickly become a place where others don’t just know your name, but care about what is happening in your life and want to support you in your spiritual journey.

WHY JOIN A COMPASS GROUP?

At Compass we want you to grow spiritually and connect with new people and Groups are how we make sure that happens. Our groups make us thrive as a church community and they are full of life and growth. Our small groups are season based, lasting 12 weeks.
