More Information

Love

Sometimes it is the smallest thing that has the greatest impact.  So we are challenging all of our Springvale family during the week of April 11 to intentionally show love to your neighbours in small, meaningful ways.  If you don’t know where to begin, prayer is a great way to start!  Ask God to show you the “who” and the “how”.

Love Your Neighbours

 

We have put a list of ideas together to help get you started.  Choose one or several!  This is a great opportunity to do something intentional as a family or challenge your Life Group to do something together.

The Great Walk for Restore

 

Restore Canada is an organization that Springvale, along with other Stouffville churches support.  Restore’s work allows churches to connect people to available local resources for a variety of purposes.

Serve

Sign up to join one of our many service projects around York Region on Saturday, May 29, 2021.  COVID-19 safety protocols will be in place!  If you don’t feel comfortable with joining a group, then we have two “from my home” options. You could do a neighbourhood clean-up with your family or a few friends, or we do have a special project that can be done at home.  In the sign-up form just select “From My Home” option.  T-shirts provided for all who sign up.
