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.

At a large church like Valley, small groups are the key to building relationships and staying connected. But perhaps you're not sure what actually goes on in a small group. This three-week "trial-sized" version of small groups will give you a glimpse of what goes on in a small group.

Details: There are two separate sessions. The Saturday group starts April 21 at 6:30 p.m., and the Sunday group starts April 22 at 11:15 a.m. Both groups will meet at the Avon Campus.

Registration: Email Heather James to sign up.

Valley is devoted to helping people come alive in Jesus, so "Tuesday Night Life" seemed an appropriate name for our new Tuesday night lineup of events. We’ve improved a few programs, added a group specifically for parents, and provided a time for all of us to spend just a few minutes with Pastor Jay as we do life together. More than 350 people gather each week for Tuesday Night Life -- come check it out at 6:15 p.m.
