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.



Welcome, Moms! Whether you are a regular attender at Valley or just curious about our programs,

we're glad you're here. Browse through the programs and activities below; this is your one-stop guide

to everything Valley offers to support, encourage, and inspire moms of all life stages.

Moms Bible Study 


This Bible study group meets twice monthly at the Avon Campus. 

Moms Bible Study equips and encourages women with biblical principles to be the women God designed them to be. With large-group teaching and small-group discussion around tables, we’ll get to know one another as we grow together.

Using the book None Like Him by Jen Wilkin as a springboard, we’ll dive into the Bible together and study the character of God. Knowing God’s character affects our daily lives, our relationships -- just about everything! All women are welcome. Please join us!

We meet from September to May, roughly every other Wednesday, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Book cost is $10.

Email Olga Borek at oborek@valleycommunity.cc for details.
