What to Expect on Sunday

First of all, welcome! You are important to God and important to us. If you live in or are visiting the Salinas area, we would love to have you join us for services this weekend.

We are a purpose-driven fellowship of Christians whose purpose is to change the world through Jesus. Approximately 4,000 people call Compass Church home, with 2,000 attending services on any given weekend. Our atmosphere is casual and friendly. We place high value on authentic relationships and teaching. Our music is current and easy to recognize. We are equally committed to helping people find faith and helping people grow in their faith. We are best known in the community for our extensive offerings for families, children and junior/senior high students.

Contemporary Service

The Contemporary Service uses a full live band, a team of vocalists and our Worship Chorus. Our team blends contemporary, gospel, country, jazz and pop styles to create a moving experience of celebratory praise and meditative worship.
