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 are passionate about helping children come to know and follow Jesus. We desire to see all children have the opportunity to hear about Jesus while in the security of a safe, clean, and loving environment. We view our role as twofold:

  • partnering with parents in growing their child’s faith
  • reaching out to children who don’t have this training at home.

but Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them,
for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.”  (Matthew 19:14)
