COMPASS is a series of Bible class curriculum that has been created from the ground up by faithful Christians. By taking the best practices from the different approaches to Bible class, COMPASS provides a fresh resource for quality Bible class programs. A chronological study through scriptures provides the foundation for understanding God, His interaction with mankind, and how students can relate to Him today. Each successive age group is presented with new Biblical texts, and a deeper study of Gods Word, allowing students to gain an understanding of the Bible narrative at an age-appropriate level. Each week students are challenged with memory work that will help them to hide God's Word in their hearts. This includes the memorization of scripture, along with pertinent facts about the Bible that will serve students well as they learn to navigate scriptures throughout their lives. An end-of-quarter quiz will help students, teachers, and parents gain insight into progress in spiritual development and knowledge. COMPASS recognizes that students face different struggles each week and at each stage of life. Accordingly, each lesson begins by presenting a real-world problem or situation that is relevant to everyday life, then takes students to God's Word to find solutions for that problem. After drawing out the key principles of the Biblical text, students are finally challenged to make specific application in their lives during the next week. Over the course of study, this produces a habit of spiritual growth and the everyday practice of Christianity. New COMPASS resources are being added all the time, so keep an eye out for other useful teaching tools!
