Compass Friends

A ministry for families with Special Needs

Meeting Times

Thursdays at 6:20-8pm

About The Ministry

Compass Friends is a ministry for families with special needs that currently serves infant-8th grade. The Compass Friends classroom provides a customized place for kids with more pronounced special needs to learn about God, the Bible and the Church, as well as develop friendships with other peers in their own learning environment. For students who need support in the general classrooms, our Buddy Up program offers assistance through an older buddy during service to provide encouragement and support.

Our Purpose

To share Christ’s love and teach His word to children with special needs and to serve their families by bringing them into the body of Christ.

Matthew 25:40 “And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’”
