God thinks kids rock, and so do we

Children's ministry at Granite City Church

Our goal is to provide a safe place for your kids to grow their faith in Jesus.

Your first visit

Each age-appropriate program includes a Bible lesson, crafts, games, regular times of Praise & Worship, and lots of encouragement along the way. All volunteers in our children's ministry have passed a CORI background check. 

  • Little Rocks: Ages 3-Kindergarten meet upstairs in our KidsRock room during the service. 
  • Rock Stars: Grades 1-5 meet in the Rock Star classroom during the service. 
  • Nursery: Our nursery is for babies and toddlers, 6 months up to young 3 year-olds. The nursery is staffed by volunteers who are parents and regular attenders of Granite City Church. Your infants and toddlers are also welcome to remain with you in the worship service.  Additionally, we have a comfortable viewing room on our lower level where you can watch a livestream of the service if your little one needs a quieter area or more space to move around.

Meet our KidsRock Director

Kathleen grew up right here on the South Shore of Boston where much of her family still lives today.  She is the mother of 3 boys, a certified spiritual director and you can even find her playing bass on the church worship team once and a while.  Kathleen has been married to Stephen since 2004.  When growing up, Kathleen had a deep love for the church and God's word, and she is passionate about seeing kids grow in that same love for Jesus and his ways.
