Each weekend worship service lasts ninety minutes. We start with worship songs and the reading of Scripture, and culminate in a careful verse-by-verse study of a portion of God’s word. A worksheet for note-taking is provided in the bulletin, which is also available digitally as a download on the main page of this website each week. We encourage you to bring your laptop, tablet, or smartphone to aid in your study of the Scripture. Free high-speed Wi-Fi can be accessed all over the Compass campus. For your convenience, we also have visitor parking spots located adjacent to the main auditorium and a “Compass Connect” information table to help you locate classrooms for your children.

Where We Meet
Compass Bible Church is located at 150 Columbia, Aliso Viejo, California. We have easy access to both the 5 and 73 freeways. We have plenty of parking, and if you are a visitor, there are special spots for you right up front.
What to Expect
Here are some practical details for your first visit.
When are services?
We have three services each weekend. Saturday at 5:00pm and Sunday mornings at 9:00am and 11:00am. Each service lasts approximately 90 minutes. We’d encourage you to arrive 15 minutes early, especially if you have young children. That will give you plenty of time to get your children checked in at their classrooms prior to the service.
How should I dress?
Most people at Compass dress as they would for a normal Orange County workday. People dress nicely but, there are plenty of jeans, even some shorts, and not a lot of coats and ties.
How do I get to Compass Bible Church?
Compass is located near the heart of Aliso Viejo in the middle of South Orange County. Plug “150 Columbia” into your maps app and you’ll find your way to the Columbia “loop”— as we call it. If it looks like a business park and not a church, you’re approaching the right place.
Where should I park?
As you approach our parking lot, you will be greeted by one of our Parking Ministry team members. This team serves to direct you, and help ensure a timely and efficient traffic flow before and after service. There is no parking on the streets (Columbia) surrounding Compass, so please note the signs and direction of the attendants to know where you can park.
I have hearing and/or visual problems. Is there any special assistance?
Yes! For those who are hearing impaired, we have special hearing devices that you can wear that will allow you to control the volume. If you think this would be beneficial to you, pick one up in the entryway of the main auditorium.
Where do my kids go?
Kids from infants-6th grade will take part in our Compass KIDS Ministry led by Susan Grover. Each weekend kids from infants through two years old learn age appropriate lessons from God’s word, the Bible. Kids three years old through sixth grade are taught from the same Bible passage, making reinforcing Bible truths at home easy and fun.
Is there someone I can talk to about getting more involved?
Our Compass Connect team, who will greet you at the doors when you enter, will be available on the patio after the services to tell you about Compass programs, activities, and ministries. We also have a small gift for you at the Compass Connect table. Look for the banner on the patio near the main entrance to the auditorium.
