music

The Music Ministry here at Spring Valley is truly a blessing to many in our church and community. Through worship we experience God's Call to love through action. Our music ministry is one of the many ways our neighbors can encounter Christ at Spring Valley.

    Spring Valley was blessed by several devoted members with the gift of an organ of such magnificence that its type is usually found in only the largest of cathedrals or concert halls. The generous gift of Zoe and Dick Thompson, the Thompson Organ’s warm and exquisite tones provide an inspiring accompaniment for worship services and special musical events.  The organ was specifically built for Spring Valley beginning in 1996 and was dedicated on February 13-14, 1999.
