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.

Spring Class & Group Descriptions

Study of the Book of Hebrews | Alan Fosberry: Hebrews was written to encourage 1st-century Christians facing difficult times, and it is just as applicable in the 21st century. Engaging with this twenty-lesson in-depth study will give you confidence, not only in what you believe, but in whom you believe, enabling you to persevere through any of life’s circumstances. REGISTER HERE

Women: He Speaks to Me | Jeannette Brennan: In He Speaks to Me: Preparing to Hear from God, a video study with Priscilla Shirer, we will draw life lessons from the account of God speaking to the boy Samuel in 1 Samuel 3. We will learn six characteristics found in Samuel that are applicable to women today as we tune our hearts to hear God's voice. By listening to God's voice and obeying Him, women will be drawn into a closer relationship to God that brings a deeper desire to serve Him faithfully. Book cost is $15.  REGISTER HERE

Precepts - Philippians: How to Have Joy | LuAnn Turbiak: How do you live the Christian life joyfully regardless of people or circumstances? What is the purpose of suffering and the Christian perspective on death? Do you have "the mind of Christ"? Discover true, deep-down joy in your life that the world cannot take away. This nine-week study for women begins Tuesday, February 7. Book cost is $18. REGISTER HERE

Second Coming Prophecy: Events throughout the world point to the second coming of Jesus Christ. Join us for an in-depth study of what the Old and New Testaments have to say about this vital subject. REGISTER HERE

Prayer Group: Do you enjoy praying for others? The team prays through the prayer card requests turned in during the worship services. The group meets in the Prayer Room at 6:20 p.m. Ongoing. REGISTER HERE

God Prophetic Plan for Mankind: In this 12-week study, we will explore prophetically important events from Genesis to Revelation with a focus on how they apply to end times. Topics include: Creation, the Flood, the Exodus, God's appointed feasts, Daniel's visions, the Olivet Discourse of Matthew 24, and the book of Revelation. Study begins Wednesday, May 17. REGISTER HERE

Community Bible Study | Irene Mosher and Linda Teixeira: Come see what happens when people discover God through the study of His Word. CBS, which is open to women and men, meets weekly during the school year. Each class member receives a course book with a commentary and home study questions. Each week, you’ll participate in small group discussions and a large group teaching. From time to time, fellowship meals will provide special times of sharing and relationship building within the class.
