Enhancing the lives of families with special needs

Compass offers a place of hope and healing based on the Word of God for the special needs and disability community as well as support for their families.

Our belief is that everyone is a vital part of God’s kingdom. Through Compass, we’re providing a sense of dignity, value, and inclusion within the Living Word family.

A learning environment with special features

Individuals can participate in a flexible, safe, and developmentally appropriate church experience guided by teachers and caregivers who are specifically trained to meet their needs. In addition, Compass offers a large muscle space, quiet space, and sensory-friendly tools and equipment.

Programs and services

  • Services times: Sundays, 11 a.m. service
  • An individualized service plan developed by the teacher and parent(s) to provide building blocks for success.
  • Bible curriculum, praise, worship, and hands-on enriching activities.
