Spring Valley was “planted” as a neighborhood Methodist church in the wheat fields of north Dallas, just as homes and schools were beginning to spring up more than 50 years ago. A small group of visionary founding families believed the new neighborhoods would need their own Methodist church. These founding families were devoted to spreading the love of Jesus Christ, extending Christian goodness into communities through missions near and far, and helping individuals and families strengthen their personal relationships with God. Their actions ignited a congregation of like-minded people and set the friendly, loving and community service-orientation of Spring Valley UMC that continues today.
