At Grace Creek Church, children are a priority. We prioritize children because we understand they are a gift from God (Psalm 127:3). As a church, we know that we are developing tomorrow's leaders by sowing biblical truths into their hearts today. Children naturally want to know they have a significant purpose in life, and it is our hope to see each child fulfill their God-given purpose. Our vision is to see each child develop a dynamic, personal relationship with Jesus Christ, and to see the Holy Spirit work through them to spread the Gospel to others.
We consider it an honor to encourage and equip parents to invest in the next generation (Proverbs 22:6). Our children's ministry, called GraceKids, is a safe and fun environment for kids to grow in their relationship with God and others. GraceKids offers the following programs for children:
Nursery: 0-2yrs | Preschool: 3 Years Old – Kindergarten
Elem1234: 1st – 5th Grade
Has your child recently accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior? Here is your Next Step.
New to Grace Creek?
In order to make the check-in process easier for you, we encourage all first time visitors to print and complete the Family Registration Card and bring it with them Sunday to expedite the check-in process.
Water baptism is an important step for every person who has accepted Christ as their Savior. Jesus instructed us to be baptized as an act of obedience, demonstrating submission to God. Baptism is a way of showing others that you have entered into relationship with Jesus Christ. Sign your child up at gracecreekchurch.com/baptism.

How is my child kept safe?
When you sign up your child at the check-in kiosk, you will be given a unique code tag and a matching coded name tag for your child. The only person who may pick up your child is the person who holds this unique code tag. All of our volunteers are required to pass background checks, so you can participate in the service assured that your child is not only having fun, but is safe as well. Should your child need you during the service, their unique code will be flashed on the screens in the Worship Center so you can attend to their need.
WHAT TO EXPECT
GraceKids Guest Check-In
As you and your child arrive at our guest check-in desks, you will be greeted by a Grace Creek volunteer. Here you will complete a family registration card and receive a name tag for your child, an asset tag for your diaper bag, and a corresponding security tag for yourself.
Your child’s age-appropriate classroom name can be found on their name tag. As you escort your child to their classroom, please have your security tag handy as you will be asked to present it as you enter our children’s area. Once you arrive at the classroom, a GraceKids volunteer will meet you at the door to welcome your child, receive your child’s diaper bag and any other necessary items you may have. Please inform the volunteer of any specific instructions you may have for your child.
Enjoy the Service
After you have completed the check-in process and taken your child to his or her room, wave a quick good-bye and head into the main worship service. As you know, it is common for little ones to cry when a parent leaves. Typically, this does not last long. Our leaders will immediately engage with your child to assist them with the transition. If your child cries for an extended period of time, we will page you via text to the cell number you provided or put your security tag number on the screen in the main worship service.
We ask that you bring as few items as necessary to service. Please label all personal items (including pacifiers and sippy cups) with your child’s first and last name before arriving at your child’s class. This helps us know which items belong to your child.
When the time comes to pick up your child, please return to the appropriate room and present your security tag to the GraceKids volunteer at the door. The tag will be matched to your child’s name tag before he/she will be released into your care. A child will not able to leave the room with a parent without the presentation of the security tag. In the event you lose your security tag, you will be asked to return to our guest check-in desk to show proper government identification before your child is returned to you. Please make sure that you have all of your child’s belongings with you before you leave.
