Background Checks for Church Volunteers

Due to recent changes in Pennsylvania law, certain volunteers that work with children are required to apply for and obtain child abuse clearances.  As such, the Stone Valley Church requires that anyone volunteering with children’s programs to obtain clearances.  As stipulated by law, anyone having valid clearances obtained for work can use these clearances for volunteer purposes.  The Commonwealth has waived the fees involved in applying for these clearances for volunteers.  Please follow the links below for more information or to apply for clearances.
