UPCOMING EVENTS


MOBILE APP & ONLINE GIVING


If you haven’t downloaded our official Compass Bible Church app on your mobile device, now is the time! It’s a great resource for watching sermons, taking notes, registering for events & doing your Daily Bible Reading. And now is a great time because we have just introduced a new system for Mobile Giving called Pushpay. You can set it up right in the app by tapping MOBILE GIVING from the WELCOME page. This will allow you to setup one-time, recurring and even food donations for future events. If you want another quick way to set it up, you can also text ‘givecbcav’ to 77977 and you will receive a link to our custom giving page where you can also setup your account for all future giving.

PASTOR MIKE'S WEEKLY WORDS


With so much in the Bible about our call as Christians to live holy lives, I nd that we often focus on the challenge and the obligation, but forget to ponder the payoff. Even when we hear the word “payoff” our minds tend to drift to the “then and there”—which of course will be beyond our most imaginative expectation. But there is plenty of “treasure” that we store up “here and now” which is worth considering. For instance, in Romans 6, after reminding Christians of their mission to pursue holiness, Paul asks, “What bene t did you reap at the time from the things you are now ashamed of? (v.21). That is a great question, one that should get our minds thinking about how much better it is for us right now when we actually live according to God’s standards. Think of how great it is for us when we obey God’s word. Acts of obedience are free from shameful regret, enslaving addictions, and all the destructive repercussions. Righteous decisions, on the other hand, yield the rich bene ts of a clear conscience, a mind at peace, a joyful sense of solidarity with our righteous God, and a compounding assurance of our own regeneration. So today when we make progress in our sancti cation let’s be grateful for what we’re missing and enjoy the current fruits of obedience.
