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.


Amp40 Questions


Do I need to register my child for Amp40 or Amp70?

You only need to register for Amp70 in advance.


What is Amp40?

Classes for children in Grades 1 - 5. The kids will be looking at the big picture of God’s story from Genesis to Revelation and seeing how they fit in it.


What time do Amp40 classes start?

Children will join their parents for worship in the Sanctuary at the start of the 9:30 or 11:15 a.m. services and be dismissed before the sermon begins.


what about Nursery - Kindergarten aged children?

Information on locations for these classes can be found at the Welcome Desk.


How will I check my child in for Amp40 classes?

Before worship starts, you will check your child in at any of the kiosks in the building. If this is your child's first time, please go to the Welcome Desk and we will assist you. 


How will my child get to the AMP40 classroom?

At dismissal time, a sign on the large screen will indicate that the children may leave. Children will leave through the back doors of the Sanctuary or the front doors of The Venue, where they will find their teacher waiting. The teacher will be holding up an Amp40 sign with the grade of the class. Children line up in front of their teacher, and the teacher will walk them to their classroom.


Do I need to leave with my child to make sure they line up?

No. You do not need to leave, but if your children need assistance, you may walk them out.


Can I meet my child’s teacher before I send him to Amp40?

For the first two weeks, the Amp40 teachers and helpers will be available near the check-in tables. Look for their class signs and you will be able to introduce your child to the teacher, or share any special concerns.


Do I have to send my child to these classes?

No. As a parent, you choose to either keep your child in the entire worship service or send them to Amp40.  


Where do I pick UP my child?

You will check out your child from their classroom. A list of classroom locations can be found at the Welcome Desk. You are required to show your check-in sticker to the teacher as you initial the sign-out sheet.




What do I do with my child while I attend an adult Community or serve during the worship service?

While you attend an adult Community or serve on Sunday mornings, your child can attend Amp70.



Classes consist of kids from a combination of grades. Children will study a biblical topic for a month at a time, learning how to apply the truth to their everyday lives.
