Ever feel down on your luck and you feel like thing after thing keeps going wrong? When you feel overlooked, is it enough to say “I have God as my portion?" This weekend's message tackled the feeling of disappointment and how that is a powerful source that can either push someone away from or towards God. Remember that even when we have lost all else, we always have God. Let us know you're here!

If we are going to follow Jesus we must love all of God's children. Jesus shows us what true love looks like. This week we tackled the topic of why love is not optional. The Lord’s core desire is that we love like he does, and that we show other people the love that he shows us. Whether that be by providing food, water, shelter, clothing, or caring for them when they are sick and in need, we are called, above all else, to LOVE and show MERCY to everyone around us. By loving other people, we are also showing our love for the Lord. Let us know you're here!

Ever called to love someone who is... less than perfect? Truth is that ALL of us are imperfect people who are called to find ways to love other imperfect people.Week four of Revolutionary Love was all about Loving Imperfect People. The Bible tells us that all sin, no matter what the sin is, is equal in God’s eyes. There is not one sin that outweighs another or has more gravity than another.  We learned four important truths this week about living imperfect people; sin is serious, we should love sinners, we shouldn’t throw stones, and we have to lead with Christ’s forgiveness. While Christ does not condone sin, he don’t not condemn sinners. Christ meets sin, with grace. Let us know you're here!

Where does love even come from? Jesus shows us the source of love and how we can experience God's love for us in order to show it to others. In this service, Jeff talked about four ways that we can grow to experience the love of God so we can better love those around us. We can 1) believe God is loving, 2) believe Jesus' loves us, 3) move into the outpouring, and 4) never leave the outpouring. Specifically, we learned that the love we are shown from God is the love that we show to others around us. Jeff used the symbol of a trickling fountain to demonstrate how God loves Jesus, Jesus loves us, and we love others. This is such a powerful message that really teaches us the source of our love. We hope you are blessed by week 3 of our series, Revolutionary Love.Let us know you're here!

We're so glad Jesus came to challenge our worldly instincts in saying, “Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you." Welcome to the second sermon in the Revolutionary Love Series! This week, we tackle the subject of how to love our enemies.  This is something that is extremely hard to do even when you know exactly what the Bible says about it.  In today's sermon, Jeff talks about specific ways we can love our enemies by doing good to, blessing, and praying for those who hate us, curse us, and mistreat us.  We learned that by showing love, we start to feel love.  One of the big takeaways from this week is that the Bible clearly states that our job as Christians is not to bring justice to those who wrong us and we are not to participate in reciprocal mistreatment.  We are called to break the cycle of mistreatment and show kindness and love to our enemies.  Let us know you're here!

Jesus introduced a love of another kind. His love has the power to transform our world in beautiful ways. Welcome to our new sermon series, Revolutionary Love! Week one of this series started off with Pastor Jeff talking about being Known By Love. We looked at John 13:34-35 and dove deep into what it looks like to be known by our love. We learned about three keys things about the way Jesus loves - His love is selfless, unconditional and non transactional.  Christ wants love to be the defining characteristic of His movement. Do you know what it means to be Known by Love? Let us know you're here!

Do you realize that there are over 3 billion people around the world who have never heard the Gospel? This weekend we want to shine the spotlight on what The Compass Church is doing to advance the kingdom of God globally. We have invited our partner, Shane Dodzweit from Eagle’s Nest Ministries in Uganda to share his amazing story of life transformation and what God is doing through his ministry. We're privileged to come alongside Eagle's Nest Ministries as one of our CompassGlobal partners. Eagle’s Nest Ministries works with the extreme poor in the capital city of Kampala, Uganda and regions in Northern Uganda to provide food, clothing, shelter, education and church and community support. The Dodzweit family and their team run a boarding school in Kampala that houses and educates over 700 children and young adults (from pre-school through high school). In addition, they assist refugees from surrounding countries who have suffered under the terrors of conflict and war.Let us know you're here!

In our series “Whiplash,” we are looking at ways to survive life’s ups and downs. This week we'll be talking about conflict in relationships. Friendships, families, marriages, neighbors, coworkers, teammates... all relationships take work. Join us this weekend as we learn how to be courageous in fighting for healthy relationships in the face of conflict.In this message, Jeff touched on four points, or principles, that we as Christians can rely on to help us get through relational conflict. These principles will help us to resolve relational conflict in a way that will best protect our hearts and honor what Jesus has taught us about loving people.  1) Beware of rationalization - when we convince ourselves that we only have one good motive but deep down we are being driven by more negative motives.  We can’t justify treating people poorly! 2) Show Undeserved Kindness - when it comes to conflict, we often find ourselves wanting to return hostility with more hostility! When people treat us poorly, we have to want to go above and beyond and treat those people with kindness.  3) Establish Necessary Boundaries - evaluate and establish boundaries. There are some people in life who are just unhealthy to have a relationship with. Establishing boundaries protects your heart and soul from the negatives about that relationship. 4) Courageously Convey Affection - when it comes to someone who you have had conflict with, you have to convey your affection! Whether that be hugs and kisses or words, convey the affection you have for them so they know that you care about them.  Stepping into expression of affection is key to overcoming conflict with the people you care about.  Let us know you're here!
