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.


Summer Trips

Each summer, many of our Middle School and High School Students take part in trips that play a significant role in their spiritual growth and in the growth of those we minister to. We'll be taking summer trips this year that vary in their focus, intensity level, and age range. Please read through the descriptions and find the trip that is best suited for you or your student.

Impact Week is designed to broaden our 8th-grade students' worldview, engage them in service opportunities, and equip them to share God’s truth with unbelievers. It is designed for students who are serious in their relationship with Jesus Christ and want to serve others and share God’s love with people. Students will serve at work projects in the morning and participate in local outreach programs in the afternoon. Work projects may include deck construction, digging trenches, plumbing, and painting. Afternoon outreach happens at the town pool, where our team facilitates competitions, dramas, crafts, personal testimonies, and a live concert. All of these activities are designed to guide people into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

All students will go through an application process to ensure suitability for the trip. Students must be committed to the team for the entire duration of the trip.

Impact Track

Sutton, West Virginia

July 5-13

Cost: $300

Open to current Sophomores and Juniors

Our high school ministry is preparing students to lead the way next year. When students begin to invest in others and take ownership of our ministry plans, they grow in their own spiritual journey and impact others in ways adults can’t. Impact Track provides significant leadership training and gives opportunities for students to put this training into practice. Students will travel to Sutton, West Virginia, to spend the week investing in our 8th-grade students who are serving there for Impact Week. Students interested in applying should have a demonstrated background in building up others and a commitment to growing and investing in our youth group.

All students will go through an application process to ensure suitability for the trip. Students must be committed to the team for the entire duration of the trip.
