We are people-driven church, not program driven. Ministries exist to meet the spiritual, emotional, physical, psychological needs of people. But, they also provide opportunities for members to grow in maturity in Christ through giving to others. GCCC ministries provide opportunities for you to serve others and actively pursue fulfilling God's purposes for your life.
Small Groups - Women - Men - Home - 8 ATE and more!
God created us to live in community: to gather together, to encourage and challenge one another- to discover how God is calling each of us into a deeper relationship with Him, each other and the world. For many of us, trying to understand this three-fold relationship can be problematic. Although we are in the large congregation on Sunday and receive God’s word we sometimes neglect developing close relationships.
Small Groups offer a safe place to connect with other believers in fellowship. Our purpose is simple - to grow in our understanding of God and our role in His plan for our life whether it is by ministering to others, becoming equipped to share Christ’s message or developing a lifestyle that worships God. It is our firm belief that life change happens best in community. We believe that when people gather in groups with a shared mission to pursue God, to love one another, and to serve others - God tends to show up and do amazing things!
“Jesus replied: ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself.'” Matthew 22:37-39
8 ATE GROUPS - Gather, Eat, Rotate, Repeat
8 ATE groups are Granite Creek's way to get connected, meet some people and enjoy a meal together. 8 people gather for dinner, in a home, a park or a restaurant. The group meets 4 times over 4 months, rotating "host" homes. "Host" provides main dish and drinks, others bring side dish, salad, or dessert. Sign up on the Connect Card and drop in the offering on Sunday, or email Pastor Janie, [email protected]
If you are interested in hosting, leading or just attending a small group, 8 ATE Group or HOME Group contact Pastor Janie at the church office or email by clicking here.

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.
Director Sara Frias
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.
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.
When a baby is checked in, the parent will be given a numbered four part tagging system. One of the parts will have the child's name and parent info and is attached to the child's back, two others will be used for identifying the diaper bag and bottle/cup and the fourth part 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, please notify the nursery staff so that we may be sure to meet your baby's needs.
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 Children's Ministry serves children from Kindergarten through 5th Grade and is located on the second floor. Children must be checked in by a parent. Please use the special tag given at check-in to pick up your child after service.
