The Compassion Experience

The Compassion Experience will bring you as close to another country and culture as you can get without a passport. This interactive, immersive display allows you to step into the life of a child who has suffered under the crippling weight of poverty.

In the span of 20 minutes, you will travel with that child from hardship to hope. In addition, in the midst of hope, you will see that child's story transformed through the support of Compassion and the child's life-giving relationship with a sponsor. Don't miss this life-changing event brought to you by Compassion International and Blue Ridge Community Church.

This event is free. Walk-ins are also welcome.

  • Blue Ridge Community Church, 2361 New London Rd. Forest, VA 
  • Starts: TBD
