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 Series: "Searching for Truth"


In the spring, Valley attenders submitted dozens of questions and topics for a series of standalone summer messages. Valley pastors reviewed the questions and selected these nine, plus an introductory sermon. We hope you will join us at Valley Avon throughout the summer as we dive into what the Bible has to say on these questions -- some simple, some complex, and all ... because you asked!
