Welcome

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

Each weekend, there are six worship services in two locations: Sundays at 10 a.m. at Greene-Hills School in Bristol. Saturdays at 5 p.m. and Sundays at 8, 9:30, and 11:15 a.m in the Sanctuary in Avon. There's also a service at 11:15 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.

 

Locations

Avon: 590 West Avon Road, Avon, Connecticut. Get directions and contact information.

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.

Sermons

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.

We're Glad You Found Us

 

Whether you're on this page because you visited Valley or just happened to stumble here through an internet search, thanks for your interest in finding out more about Valley! We hope that you see or read something here that sparks a visit to our Avon or Bristol Campus. We invite you to explore the website or our "Connecting Points" links on the right; meanwhile, here are some questions you may have:

 

WHAT DO PEOPLE AT VALLEY BELIEVE?

Valley Community Baptist Church is a family of Bible-believing people who follow Jesus. We are imperfect people who, though we've done nothing to deserve it, have received and accepted Jesus' gift of forgiveness and eternal life. We have the same troubles, sufferings, and problems as everyone... but have found joy and truth through our faith in God's Word and plan for humankind. And we share these beliefs because the Bible tells us that anyone can receive this gift, if they truly believe.

 

WHAT HAPPENS AT VALLEY SERVICES?

To start and end, we  have terrific live bands and worship teams that lead us in songs about our faith. (And you don't HAVE to sing if you don't want to!) Sometimes we'll feature videos of people at Valley talking about their spiritual journey. We listen to an excerpt from the Bible that pertains to that day's message. We do take an offering, but it's for our regular attenders. We hear a message (a sermon) from Senior Pastor Jay Abramson or one of other pastors. It's that simple! Here's a short excerpt from a sermon by Pastor Jay, as an example. (Click here to watch or listen to any recorded sermon.)

 

 

WHY ARE THERE TWO LOCATIONS?

Valley Community Baptist Church in Avon was launched in 1976, and as membership grew over the years, two more churches were planted. In 2014, Valley began a multisite strategy by starting a new campus, as part of the same church, in Bristol, Connecticut. Each Sunday, Valley Bristol meets at Greene-Hills School at 10 a.m. Bristol has its own pastor, live music, and volunteers. But instead of a live sermon, Bristol shows a video of the message taped from a service that same weekend in Avon.

So that's why we say we are one church in multiple locations. Our staff, beliefs, and DNA are the same in both places. You may find that "Church in a Gym" at Greene-Hills is more to your liking! Or at least closer to home. We encourage you to give it a try.

Go to our Bristol page for a video about that campus and more information.
