Compass Kids is a ministry created with your child in mind.
Our amazing volunteers are gifted and passionate about providing dynamic worship, creative teaching, and intentional small group times to capture your child’s attention and their heart.

We have a deep desire that children would not only experience what it means to know and follow Jesus Christ but even more that they would become His disciples. Each week the environment and age-appropriate teaching methods are designed to help your kids understand the Bible and learn to apply its teaching to their lives. A monthly take-home sheet is also available for each age group.
Children in nursery through senior kindergarten use curriculum from Orange
Children in grades 1-5 are taught from Gospel Light.
First time at Compass Kids?
For children up to age 2, our Nursery is on the main floor just to the left of the Auditorium. You can register your little one here and leave instructions for our volunteers.
For older kids age 2 up to grade 5, head up the stairs to your left as you come in the main doors at Compass. Upstairs you will be greeted by one of our volunteers who will guide you to our guest kiosk located down our main hallway. Once you are registered you will receive a set of stickers with a family identification number for you and your child. Our registration volunteers will help you get you registered and your children to the right room.
If for some reason your child were to need you during the service, your family identification code from your registration sticker will appear on the display in the auditorium. Head to the nursery or upstairs and one of our leaders bring you to your child.
When you arrive, head to the Compass Kids Check-In Centre (if you don’t see the sign, ask a greeter to lead you there). Your kids will be checked in, and you’ll receive instructions from there.
We know your child’s safety is important to you and we share that concern. From matching parent and child security tags to ensuring every volunteer is screened with an interview, reference checks, and criminal background check, we have aimed to make Compass Kids a safe and fun place for your child to learn about God. We also have security volunteers in place in the halls of both locations.
