Founding Pastor Larry Kapchinsky
Larry Kapchinsky has served since 1984 as founding pastor of what today is known as Granite Creek Community Church (GCCC). GCCC grew out of a 1997 church merger between Ontario Vineyard and New Life Community Church.
Vision for the Church
Pastor Larry desires to see the lost come to know Christ in a powerful way and to grow in Him through perseverance and character. Compelled by the Great Commission and Christ's commandment to serve the widows, orphans, and those in need, pastor views the church as the greatest tool to deliver hope to the hopeless.
He also believes that regardless of where you are on your spiritual journey, God has a plan of significance and meaning for your life and your family's--an ultimate plan of God's love which offers you hope for a bright future through His Son Jesus Christ.
Granite Creek’s Unique Culture
Granite Creek Community Church (GCCC) is a mid-sized church (300 adults attending Sunday services). We are not a mega church but we think big. We are not a small church, but if you give us a try you won't get lost in the crowd. If a mega church were like a Wal-Mart, then Granite Creek would be a Trader Joe's.
Every family is unique and every church family is unique. What makes Granite Creek unique is our values of:
- Strengthening families (especially those who have kids with special needs)
- Affirmation of education
- Hard work
- Ethnic, economic and age diversity
