Christmas Eve at Valley

We hope you, your family, and friends will make plans to join us at one of our four all-church Christmas Eve services at Valley Avon. The schedule is below. Our "Christmas at Valley" page is coming soon! 

All Christmas Eve services will be in the Sanctuary. Our "overflow" room will be The Venue, which will live-stream the services and be properly decorated for the occasion!

FAMILY SERVICES: 1:30 and 3 p.m.

Pastor Mark Woof will lead these family-friendly Christmas Eve services, including a special kid-friendly message and lots of familiar holiday music for all ages to sing. All those young and restless are invited; these services are a bit noisy and a lot of fun! There is childcare available during these services.

CANDLELIGHT SERVICES: 5 and 7 p.m.

Senior Pastor Jay Abramson leads these joyous and reflective Christmas Eve services, featuring the heart of the Christmas story and traditional carols and music. Childcare for kids 3 and under is available.

 

 

LESSONS & CAROLS: DECEMBER 15

You're invited to a worship service featuring traditional Christmas music and Scripture readings (no sermon), an event suitable for Valley attendees and guests! “A Thrill of Hope” will feature a full orchestra, choirs, handbells, and your voices. There will be two services on Sunday, December 15, 4 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.

Two important notes about ticketing: Tickets are free, but there is a limit of five tickets per email address. Please note that you MUST arrive at least 15 minutes before the start of the service to guarantee a seat in the Sanctuary. If you arrive after that point, you may be seated in The Venue, where we hold weekly worship services. Here you would enjoy large screens and excellent sound.

JOIN THE PRAYER FORCE

Anyone can join the Valley Prayer Force! We're inviting all attendees to use our Prayer Force Journal to record your prayers and help you listen to God's responses. You can join at any time. Pick up a journal in the Welcome Area before or after a worship service.

 

TRANSITION UPDATES

Jay Abramson announced in February that God is making it clear it's time for him to start a new phase of ministry. After nearly 30 years in ministry at Valley Community Baptist Church, including 25 years as Senior Pastor, he announced that he would be retiring in 2020.

The Senior Pastor transition process has begun and is going well. Read all about the background and next steps at our Senior Pastor Transition page.
