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.

summer service times now permanent

Times are changing, quite literally, at Valley Avon!

The summertime worship service changes have been made permanent. Here's our schedule for this fall and the future (exactly the same as our current summer schedule):

Saturday, 5 p.m., in the Sanctuary (Contemporary service)

Sunday, 9 a.m., in the Sanctuary (Contemporary service)

Sunday, 10:30 a.m., in the Sanctuary (Blended service)

Sunday, 10:30 a.m., in The Venue (Contemporary service)



Saturday evening communities stay on the same schedule. 

On Sundays, communities that had been gathering at the 9:30 service will now meet at 9 a.m. Communities that were previously scheduled for 11 a.m. will now meet at 10:30 a.m.




The same sermon series will be preached at all three Valley locations this summer. "The Tablet of Your Heart," featuring God's wisdom from the book of Proverbs, will be preached live by various pastors at Valley Avon, Valley Bristol, and Valley Simsbury.

Reading plan: Make sure to pick up a Proverbs reading plan card at your location this weekend! It's an easy way to develop Bible-reading habits, and you can start any day!

Discussion guide: Valley's discussion guide for the Valley Avon schedule, suitable for individual and group discussion, is available for download here.



Jay Abramson announced in February that he believed God was making it clear that he was in the final phase of his ministry at Valley Community Baptist Church. After nearly 30 years in ministry at Valley, including 25 years as Senior Pastor, he announced that he would be retiring in 2020.

The Senior Pastor transition process has begun and is going well. Read all about the background and next steps at our Senior Pastor Transition page.
