“Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6
Our goal in the Spring Valley Church Children’s Ministry is to become “Someone who Values Christ.” We want your child to feel special and loved. We strive to share God’s word in a way that kids will come to know, love, and serve him. Our volunteers seek to introduce and enhance the children’s relationship with Jess, allow them to grow in spiritual formation, and to encourage maturation in their faith.
Wisdom Talks about Work | 4th & 5th Grade
Our preteens are working together to discover God’s purpose in our everyday lives. We are using the Bible to talk about: Why is work hard? What attitudes does God desire me to have as I work? How can I work for God’s glory and not for man? Can my work get me into heaven? We are also helping the children apply what they learn by serving in our church (greeting, setting out cookies, making and delivering cards, and helping with worship).
Our 4th/5th graders meet every other Sunday morning during the worship service. We do not meet during the summer or during school breaks.

Jr. Youth Group | 4th & 5th Graders
We are using slime to learn that God specializes in messy situations, because sometimes in life it feels like we’ve been slimed! Sometimes it’s because of decisions we make, sometimes it’s from decisions others make that hurt us. Through the life of Jacob, kids will learn that when we stick to God, He can make something beautiful out of any slimy situation.
Svc Club | 1st & 3rd Graders
We are using the “What’s in the Bible” Curriculum to study the Old Testament. We are learning the Big Story of the Bible and finding out about God’s rescue plan.
