Our Vision

The Preschool and Elementary Ministry of Richland Creek seeks to teach children to Love God (in His Word, prayer, our witness, our worship) and Love Others (through our church, ministry, generosity, while on mission) all while partnering with parents in the Biblical Discipleship of their children.

We will not hide them from their children, but tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the Lord, and his might, and the wonders that he has done. He established a testimony in Jacob and appointed a law in Israel which he commanded our fathers to teach to their children, that the next generation might know them, the children yet unborn, and arise and tell them to their children, so that they should set their hope in God and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments. (Psalm 78:4-7)

First Time?

We want you and your children to have a safe and fun experience if you are visiting Richland Creek for the first time, and want your children to participate in the Creek Kids ministry.

Before You Arrive

Our space uses the check-in/security system, KidCheck.  If you haven’t already created your free account, please do so by going to and selecting “Create Your KidCheck Account.” Or download the KidCheck Mobile App from the App Store or Google Play Store to create, manage, and update your account right on your mobile device.  Creating your account prior to the your first visit helps your first check-in go more quickly so you can get on your way.

Check-In Process

During this season of Covid, we will have volunteers waiting to check your children into the correct classrooms, stationed to assist you at the entrance to the Lower Level Children's area. When you enter the front doors of the church, look for the stairs and elevator on your left!


The Nursery Ministry at Richland Creek strives to show babies and toddlers the love of Jesus through His Word while keeping them safe and well cared for. Our desire is to love and encourage each family in discipleship through being a resource for them. 

On Sunday mornings, parents are greeted by trained servants who will get all needed information for your child so they can have the best and safest time possible. During this season, all volunteers will wear face masks to maintain a safe as possible environment for everyone. Nursery aged children are not required to wear masks. Within the class your child will be held, sung to, played with, and loved on while learning God’s Word. Every child is checked and changed during each service hour and will be fed according to your schedule.


Creek Kids Preschool Ministry exists to assist parents in laying a spiritual foundation for your child that, through prayer and guidance, would lead to their salvation. We minister to children from age 2 through pre-K during all of our Sunday Morning worship times using The Gospel Project curriculum. Preschool aged children are not required to wear face masks, however all volunteers will be masked.

Kindergarten-3rd Grade

In the Kindergarten - 3rd grade Elementary Ministry we work to continue building up a strong, gospel-centered foundation for our children. We do this by teaching children about the nature and character of God in creative environments that are safe and fun. We look forward to seeing you at any of our Sunday morning programs!

With dedicated and loving teachers, our aim is to encourage and grow a child's relationship with Christ.  Using Lifeway’s “The Gospel Project” curriculum our classes help children dig deep into God's Word in an atmosphere where they feel a sense of belonging. Get ready to be equipped with foundational Bible knowledge and the tools needed to live a life for Christ.

CK 4/5

Creek Kids 4/5 is a ministry intended to bridge students in 4th & 5th Grade to middle school. Students will learn how to have a relationship with Jesus, grow in their Christian walk, and learn how to share their faith with those in their church, school, and community. We accomplish this by providing a safe and engaging place for students to be discipled using God's Word and prayer as our main tools.
