Join the fun and experience a place where kids meet Jesus on their level.

Compass Kid happens during every Sunday Service experience and is from children aged 8 months all the way through 6th grade.

What is Compass Kids?

Here in Compass Kids, we aim to be an “arrow pointing north” for your child. As your child grows, they will decide for themselves what they believe. It is our goal to point them to the love of Jesus as they find their way. Every Sunday in Compass Kids, your child will experience safe, age appropriate, and interactive environments where the Bible is taught in a creative and relevant way. Join the fun and experience a world where kids meet Jesus on their level!

What We Value

Safe

Safety is the precursor to everything else we want to do here in Compass Kids. Therefore, we go to great lengths to ensure every child is safe. Each child is given a PIN (Parent Identification Number) for check-in/out, every volunteer (18 & up) is screened and given a federal background check. Additionally, every hallway is monitored with security personnel, and because every child is unique, every teacher is made aware of all allergies, preferences, and special needs. We can't do what we do each Sunday without first providing kids with a safe environment to engage, learn and grow!

Clean

The environment a child walks into creates a lasting impression on both the child and parent. We strive to cultivate a clean, organized, and well-structured atmosphere because attention to detail underscores the value we see in every child.  Each one of our Compass Kids classrooms are thoroughly evaluated on a weekly basis to ensure they are both child safe as well as clean. Toys are wiped after every service and are replaced often. Storage bins are organized regularly.  We are committed to the overall health and wellness of our Compass Kids -- spiritually, emotionally and physically.

Relational

Jesus knows every child's name. We want to show kids that Jesus knows them intimately by creating a culture that allows them to be both known and loved by their peers and teachers. We are passionate about developing lasting relationships with each child who attends our program. We believe that personal connections with peers and adults alike are essential in every child's journey with Jesus.

Fun

We serve a creative God! His creation shows us He has a heart that is innovative, interactive, and fun. One thing we adults can learn from our children is to remember to be silly and joyful. In Compass Kids, we strive to create an environment that leaves kids with their eyes wide in wonder and their bellies aching with laughter, because we believe that this glorifies our God.

Check in ProCess

If you are new to Compass Kids, first of all, welcome! We ask that you arrive 10-15 minutes early to check your child in. Your first stop will be our check-in station. At check-in, we provide a secure system to ensure your child is safe while in our program. We make sure to enforce our check-in policy so you can view the service with confidence that your child is well taken care of. Upon arrival, you will find our welcome team members ready to greet you, hand you a coffee, and direct you to our check-in location. We can’t wait to see you!

Special Environments 

Nursing Mothers' Room

A nursing mother’s room is provided for moms to relax and enjoy the service privately while tending to their babies. This is a “moms only” room just for women.

Rangers Program Special Needs

Our Ranger's program aims to introduce children with a variety of special needs to Jesus and disciple them to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. The team is made up of individuals who have been trained in house or who work professionally with children with special needs and are committed to serving families in our community whose children require unique care. We accomplish this by providing curriculum specifically designed for special needs children using both verbal and tactile experiences as well as a secure classroom environment where students are able to focus and thrive. Our current program runs during our 11am Mantua Campus Service.

Baby Dedications

Here at True North we practice baby dedication. This is a time when parents pledge their commitment to raise their child according to Christian values and beliefs. While a very meaningful event, this is not a Christian baptism, according to the Bible.
