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

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.



At Valley, we desire to help women discover assurance and hope in their identity in Jesus Christ and to find safety and satisfaction in Him. 

We will treasure Christ together through ...


Christmas Open Houses 

Christmas is a wonderful season to share Christ's message in a meaningful way. People's hearts are unusually open to spiritual matters and connecting with others. 

Again this year, we are encouraging Valley women to invite friends, neighbors, and co-workers into homes for a more intimate gathering: a “Christmas Open House.”

 How? It’s simple….

  • Pray and schedule a get-together in your home (you choose the time and date).
  • You can team up with a friend to host your event.
  • Invite a few (or quite a few!) women to your home for a relaxed time with friends.
  • Share God’s grace and mercy with those around you as you build and deepen friendships.

In our isolated society, many people are honored to be invited into a home. This is a great opportunity for women throughout Hartford and Litchfield Counties to experience Jesus’ love this Christmas season!

God does not care as much about our ability as our availability; allow Him to work in your heart as you consider a gathering in your home. When we open our hearts as well as our homes, we're practicing Christian hospitality.

Download more ideas as well as follow-up information and opportunities. For booklets for your guests, prayer support, or if you have questions, contact Heather James, Women’s Ministry Coordinator at hjames@valleycommunity.cc.

We'd love to know about your gathering!

Precept | LuAnn Turbiak | Avon Campus

Jesus promised His disciples that they would take the Gospel to the remotest parts of the earth. Observe Paul's transformation from persecutor of the church to preacher. Join him on his journeys across the Roman world to proclaim the saving message of Jesus to Jews and Gentiles. Learn how to witness and how to live an authentic Christian life in all circumstances in the power of the Holy Spirit. Learn to be like Paul, to be bold in proclaiming the name of Jesus and to trust our sovereign Lord who enables us to endure persecution and suffering at the hands of those who hate Jesus...and therefore, hate us.            The study meets Tuesdays at 9:30 a.m. in Room 206. Book Cost: $20. REGISTER HERE
