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 and Preschool Classes serve Infants through 5 years old and is located on the first floor.
Children's Ministry K-6th meets upstairs both 9:30 and 11:00. We also offer special needs class and 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).
Our nursery serves infants through non-potty trained 2 year olds and is located on the first floor.
The nursery policies are stringent in regard to cleanliness, safety and care and are strictly adhered to and monitored. We maintain a ratio of 1 caregiver to every 3 children. When a baby is checked in, the parent will be given a specially coded tag that corresponds with their child's tag. A name tag will have the child's name and parent info and is attached to the child, and one tag stays with the parent. The child will only be given to the person with the corresponding numbered tag. If your child has allergies or special needs, we ask that you notify the nursery staff so that we may be sure to meet your baby's needs. Please put names on the diaper bag and any bottle or cup.
The Preschool Dept. serves potty trained 2 year olds through Pre-Kindergarten and is located on the first floor. We ask that the children not bring toys, bottles or cups from home. If your child has a security blanket or animal, be sure to label it with your child's name. Children must be checked in and out by a parent. Please fill out a family info card on your first visit.
Our Elementary Dept. serves children from Kindergarten through 5th grade and is located on the second floor. Children must be checked in by a parent. We encourage parents to pick their child up after service; however, if a parent provides written permission, children 3rd grade and older can be released at the end of the service (daylight hours only).
