Worship is the reverent love and allegiance we as Christians accord Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior; it is the praise of God and the edification of His people. Here at Compass Church, we express this love and allegiance in a variety of ways, including prayer, being still before our God, instrumental music, voices raised in joyful celebration and honor, corporate scripture reading, and expository teaching from the pulpit.Times and Location
