About us

Spring Valley Presbyterian Church – a PC(USA) congregation – is a community of sinners saved by the grace of God through Jesus Christ and inspired by the Holy Spirit. We seek to glorify God, nurture one another and express the love of God in word and deed. Spring Valley is the founding church of the Souper Bowl of Caring effort and is the home of a vibrant youth program that is the heart of the church's local/national/international mission program.

We greatly value the inclusive nature of our Children, Youth and Families program, which serves children and youth from a diverse array of personal and family backgrounds. The ideal candidate for this position will share those values and bring a heart full of love for all of God's children.

  • Participate in the planning and leadership of special Sunday events, such as Celebration Sunday, Advent Festival, Celebration of Children Sunday, Holy Week, etc.

  • Supervise the Nursery Coordinator.
