- In 1961 Moraga Valley Presbyterian church started meeting in a school. MVPC then acquired a unique hillside property. In the first decade, MVPC became congregation of several hundred members. It was during this decade the chapel (now Fellowship Hall) and a wing of classrooms were built. In 1987, with membership now passing 500 members, plans were laid for the development of the church campus. In 1992 MVPC finally dedicated its beautiful new worship center. In 1997, MVPC's congregation raised nearly $7 for a Family Ministry Center. This complex provides space for our children, student ministries, and the Nurtury Preschool. The Family Ministry Center was dedicated in 1999 and is now a second home for hundreds of young people. There are now 900 official members and 500 friends who call MVPC their church home. MVPC’s programs include: Mom’s Council , Women’s Bible Study, Men’s Bible Study, parenting and marriage classes, bibli
- Nurtury Preschool - Our goal at the Nurtury is to provide a developmentally appropriate, enriching program that addresses a child's social, emotional, physical, cognitive and spiritual development. Our staff and teachers are trained in early childhood education and are committed to nurturing and loving children. We are thankful for the dedicated professionals God continues to bring to our school, teachers and staff who have committed themselves to maintain the standards of behavior in their Christian walk, work performance, and personal example. This careful attention builds trust and enables lasting and warm relationships to develop between the teachers and children. Our hope is that your child will associate the love and attention they receive with the loving care and goodness of the Lord Jesus Christ. The mission of the MVPC Nurtury is to convey, through our word, actions, and curriculum, the salvation of God in Jesus Christ, and provide a child-centered program that fosters a love for God, a love for each other, a love for His Word and a love for the world. The Nurtury Board, comprised of the Nurtury Director and members of the church, is responsible for overseeing this non-profit program including setting tuition and developing policies.
