Welcome

Welcome to Valley Community Baptist Church. We are one church in multiple locations with campuses in Avon and Bristol, CT. Our mission is to honor God and grow in Christ by worshipping God, equipping believers, bringing people to Christ and serving our neighbors. We would be honored to have you join us

Worship Service Times & Styles

Each weekend, there are six worship services in two locations: Sundays at 10 a.m. at Greene-Hills School in Bristol. Saturdays at 5 p.m. and Sundays at 8, 9:30, and 11:15 a.m in the Sanctuary in Avon. There's also a service at 11:15 a.m. at the Avon Campus in The Venue. There are communal dinners on most Saturday and Tuesday evenings at the Avon Campus. We also meet as small groups and classes throughout the week.  We look forward to meeting you.

Bristol: 718 Pine Street, Bristol Connecticut. We meet at Greene-Hills School in Bristol.

Children & Students

We encourage families to worship together on the weekend, and then choose children's programs and communities for middle school and high school students. During the week, we offer age-specific clubs and gatherings for children, middle school and high school students

There are also special events like summer camps, student retreats and the family summit that will help children and parents grow in their relationships with each other and God.

Sermons

At Valley Community Baptist Church, we value knowing the truth of God and obeying His Word. Senior Pastor Jay Abramson is the lead teaching pastor. We invite you to listen to the latest sermon series.

Family Worship

This fall, we made changes to encourage families to worship together. These changes take place during Sunday services at 9:30 and 11 a.m.

Worship the Lord with gladness; 
come before him with joyful songs.
Psalm 100:2

At Valley Community Baptist Church, we value worship that includes the entire body of Christ.
We believe that corporate worship is an essential part of spiritual growth. Corporate worship is one
of our core values:

We value WORSHIPPING God in Spirit and Truth; therefore, our goal is that every person at Valley will be drawn into a connection with God through corporate worship. 

We also feel strongly that parents should be the primary disciplers of their children. If children are
to be taught the spiritual discipline of worship, they need to experience worship with their parents
at a young age.

 

Faith and Worship

A study by youth experts, Kara Powell and Chap Clark, found that 40-50% of graduating high school seniors, who were regular attenders of various evangelical church youth groups, abandon their faith in college. Most of these students only had a relationship with the church youth group, not the church as a whole. Those who attended church-wide worship services were much more likely to continue in their faith in college.

 

Worship

Our desire is to be a church that helps families worship together and grow together. Valley has made important changes to encourage family worship while still creating environments for age-appropriate teaching. These changes take place during Sunday services at 9:30 and 11 a.m. There will be no changes to either the Saturday evening or the Sunday 8 a.m. services.

  • Nursery - Kindergarten will be provided for the entire time of each service.

  • Children and students in Grades 1-8 will now join their family for a time of corporate worship. Parents may choose to keep their child in the service or send them to Amp40 (40 minutes of age-specific teaching). Before the sermon begins, there will be a dismissal time for children and students to attend Amp40.

  • High school students are transitioning into adulthood and will stay in the entire service. There will still be time through the week for them to worship and fellowship with their peers.
