1 Timothy 4:12 (NIV)
Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.

At Granite Creek, kids are a priority. One of our values is to see kids grow up to become everything God created them to be as they develop a personal faith and relationship with Christ in a safe and loving environment.
Our nursery serves infants through non-potty trained 2 year old and is located on the first floor.
Children's Ministries K-6th meets upstairs both 9:30 and 11:00. We also offer "special needs" classes or buddies.
Partnering with parents in providing experiences that will meet their child's mental, emotional and spiritual needs so that their children will become fully devoted followers of Christ.
All of our Children's Workers have been screened through a seven point security process which includes: the Dept. of Justice, the DMV and a background check. Our curriculum (from 2 year olds - 5th grade) is interactive and includes a variety of components to accommodate various learning styles. We present the Gospel in age-appropriate ways. We are firm believers that while the method of communicating the Gospel can -and does change, the message of God's love and plan of salvation does not. Our schedule includes worship, large group meeting (main lesson) and small group (life application and relationship building).
Sixth Grade Club
We have two major lines of Bible study, one for Sundays and one for Wednesdays.
- On Wednesdays we study the book of Ecclesiastes and the life of King Solomon. We undertook each and very aspect that King Solomon thought worthy in the life of men, and concluded with stance that a life outside God’s plan and direction is not a life worth living.
On Sundays we have been covering the basic concepts of Christian doctrine, such as salvation, faith, forgiveness, and love. Our classes have a dynamic structure with small videos, power point presentations and a set of visual examples that aid in the understanding and application of the Bible in our lives. We have discovered that some of the biblical concepts we thought we knew actually possess a much deeper meaning, and are more important than we thought. We are more knowledgeable of God’s personality and our relationship with Him.
