Compass Kids


Because of the busyness surrounding spring break and Easter, we’ll be pausing our weekly releases of Pastor Mark’s Family Funday School for about a month. We’ve set up a special website as a “one stop shop” for Easter-related Bible Lesson Videos and Fun Activities that your family can use whenever it works best for you during this season. Use the materials in Pastor Mark’s Family Funday School Easter Toolbox for your family’s Sunday School times before or after church on Sunday… or use them for Family Discipleship Times or Family Fun Nights later in the week.

There’s a LOT of cool stuff in our Eater Toolbox! Use it over and over again… and feel free to share this toolbox with friends. We hope the “tools” in this toolbox help you to have a fun and meaningful springtime as a family!




Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.   Deuteronomy 6:5-7

Compass EFC loves kids… and their families!  Compass Kids, the children’s ministry of Compass EFC, believes that God created the family (not the Children’s Ministry) to be the primary environment where discipleship and spiritual transformation take place.


Knowing this, here is our Purpose Statement…


The purpose of COMPASS KIDS is to partner with parents as they assume the role as the primary disciplers of their children; Providing gospel-centered, Bible-saturated ministry to children that points them to the life-saving message of Jesus Christ.

  • Compass Kids will provide an environment where children feel loved, safe, and secure.
  • Compass Kids will make having fun a priority and be a place where laughter is encouraged.
  • Compass Kids will be a place where the gospel is proclaimed with clarity and urgency.
  • Compass Kids will commit to God’s Word as our guide and standard.
  • Compass Kids will be a place where volunteers serve with joy, with excellence, and without grumbling & complaining.
  • Compass Kids will be a place where family discipleship & family worship are modeled and encouraged.


Compass Kids has lots of exciting areas of ministry for your children to participate in.  Take a look at these areas of ministry as well as a list of Compass Kids’ Recommended Family Discipleship Resources.
