Welcome to Compass KIDS!
Compass Friends Staff
The philosophy of our Special Needs Ministry is broad and yet tailor made to the needs of your child and family. The ultimate goal for each ministry is to achieve maximum learning and spiritual development. Our goal is to provide a time that is educationally and socially enriching to your child. We desire to give your child and family the personal care and attention needed to make coming to church a joyful and beneficial experience. We seek to provide a support network for the parents as well.
