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

Worship Service Times & Styles

We worship together on Saturdays at 5 p.m. and Sundays at 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m in the Sanctuary in Avon. There's also a service at 10:30 a.m. at the Avon Campus in The Venue. There are communal dinners on most Saturday and Tuesday evenings at the Avon Campus. We also meet as small groups and classes throughout the week.  We look forward to meeting you.

Bristol: 718 Pine Street, Bristol Connecticut. We meet at Greene-Hills School in Bristol.

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.

Weekend Programs

We seek to provide a creative place where children are learning more about God and the Bible in a dynamic environment. We value a partnership with the parents, knowing that this is the best way for children to grow spiritually. The classes are based on the age of the child. Various teaching methods are used to engage the children in the learning process.

The classes are taught by volunteers who have an expressed interest in children and who have completed the KidSafe process (an application, references received, security background check and an interview).


Parents: How Amp40 Works 


Children's Saturday Programs (Valley Avon)


5 p.m worship service

Infants through Kindergarten


Children's Sunday Programs (Valley Avon)



Nursery care for Infants & Walkers will be provided for the entire time of each service.

Age 2 through Kindergarten classes will include Bible lessons and fun activities, also for the entire time of each service.

At Valley, we encourage families to worship together. During the 9 a.m. and
10:30 a.m. services, children in Grades 1-5  join their family for a time of corporate worship.Before the sermon begins, there will be a dismissal time for children and students to attend Amp40. Parents may choose to keep their child in the service or send them to Amp40 (40 minutes of age-specific teaching while the sermon is being preached).

Children who attend Amp40 will be in graded classes looking at the big picture of God’s story from Genesis to Revelation and seeing how they fit in it. 



Community, Serving, & Amp70 

We encourage families to attend another hour on Sundays at the Avon Campus in order to meet with a Community or serve in some capacity. For the children of those families, Amp70  (70 minutes of age-appropriate teaching and fellowship during the entire service) is offered at the 9 a.m. hour. Children must be registered to be in this class. Amp70 classes consist of combined Grades 1 - 5.




Special Needs

We have an inclusive setting for children with special needs. As we partner with parents to provide
a loving and educational environment for all of the children, we attempt to meet the needs of each child. If there is a need for a child to have one-on-one assistance, the child is assigned a "Special Buddy" to work with them in the age-appropriate classroom.
