Compass Church is in the business of navigating people to God, and that begins with showing His love to families during their time of need.
This integral partner has been a faithful ally to GRACE since the agency first began. Since 1995, Compass Church has devoted $241,000 to further GRACE programs.
While we thought it was hard to outdo the love they have shown to families these many years, the congregation has gone above and beyond in generosity and service for local families.
Compass Church made a surprise visit during GRACE’s monthly staff meeting, with a check for $50,000 to advance GRACE services to more families. The first installment of their charitable giving initiative, the generosity was inspired by their Uncharted 50 campaign, celebrating 50 years of ministry by the Compass Church family.
The movement encourages members with three noble charges: go beyond borders to navigate thousands of unreached people across the globe, beyond their walls to prepare for new ministry opportunities, and beyond themselves by serving the local community.
This defining season at Compass spurred discipleship groups organically into action at GRACE. Those who participated in Rooted, intimate discipleship groups that completed a 10-week curriculum designed to evaluate biblical applications, were inspired to serve in creative ways.
Groups greeted donors and sorted items at Donation Station, pulled weeds outside the homes of isolated seniors, painted fences, collected canned goods, hosted collection drives and benefit events, and even sang Christmas carols to encourage families facing hardship.
Not only have members given of their financial resources, we are moved that they would employ their talents and devote time and energy into making our community a more beautiful one.
“Many wonders and miraculous signs were happening through the apostles, and everyone felt great respect for God. All the believers stayed together and shared everything. They sold their land and the things they owned. Then they divided the money and gave it to those who needed it. The believers shared a common purpose, and every day they spent much of their time together in the Temple area. They also ate together in their homes. They were happy to share their food and ate with joyful hearts. The believers praised God and were respected by all the people. More and more people were being saved every day, and the Lord was adding them to their group.” Acts 2:43
