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.

Special Needs

At Valley, we want every child, teenager, and adult to feel welcomed, loved and secure as a part
of the body of Christ who gather here. We believe everyone deserves an equal opportunity
to worship, learn, and serve in our church, regardless of their abilities.


Children & Youth

  1. Buddy Program – based on the needs of the child or teen, an adult "buddy" is assigned to work one-on-one. This program allows them to participate, along with their peers, in the classroom environment on Saturdays, Sundays or during Tuesday Clubs.

  2. Champions Club - a place for children and youth with special needs to be comfortable and engaged so their parents can attend church and/or Community on Saturday or Sunday. Learning and faith-based activities are provided.

Each child’s needs are considered and the family has input into where and when the child participates in any environment. We may be unable to accept a child or adult without previous arrangements being made. Contact Laura Costley to arrange an appointment with a pastor to discuss any special needs that you or your child may have.
