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.


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.

Why Growth Groups?


We want you to get connected here at Valley. 

We value knowing the truth of God and obeying His Word; therefore, our goal is that every person at Valley is taking steps to grow to maturity in Christ through biblically authentic relationships centered around God’s Word.

Sermon-based small groups (Growth Groups) primarily meet in homes with the goal of helping to connect people with God, each other, and the Bible.

In these groups we build relationships, learning to love, serve and encourage each other. We learn to share our stories of how we came to know Jesus and the changes He has made in our lives. We study and apply God’s Word using discussion questions and the scripture from the weekend messageGot questions about Growth Groups?
