Welcome

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.

Sermons

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.

Drive Home

Drive Home is a guide for parents to see what their kids have learned about during Riot and Synergy.

Each week, we will post the topic and include questions about the lesson so that you can engage your student in deeper conversation.

We will not post for high school on Life Group weeks.

Wednesday, January 30 - Middle School

Series Topic: Unashamed

Theme: Transformed

Scripture: Romans 12:1-2

Main Idea: Paul tells us to offer ourselves as living sacrifices, and to do that we must not conform to the pattern of this world. That means we can't just go along with the crowd and do whatever it does. We need to allow our minds to be transformed, so that instead of constantly focusing on what the world wants, our minds focus on what God wants.

Questions:

1. What is the difference between what the world wants and what God wants?

2. How can we continue to transform our minds?

3. How is this worship to God?

4. What do you think would happen if we actually did this? What would it look like as we go back to school/work?

 

Wednesday, January 30 - High School

 

This year, we had a wonderful time on the High School Winter Retreat. So many times, you ask your child "How was it?" and they simply answer "Good." To give you a little more context and information, here's a synopsis of the lessons from the weekend and some tangible next steps for your child’s faith.

1. Remember God's Grace - Everything that God asks us to do is for our joy, not His acceptance. (John 15:9-11)


2. Get Back to the Basics - Do what you did in the past to renew your passion. (Revelation 2:4-5)


3. Take Sexual Purity Seriously - Purity is the pathway for future marital intimacy and intimacy with God. (1 Thessalonians 4:2-3)


4. Live Life on Mission with Jesus – (Matthew 28:19-20) As you live a life of mission, God's promise to you is His nearness. To stay close, you must stay on mission!


5. Seize Moments to Plug into the Local Church - (Hebrews 10:25) Get out of the friend zone with your church.


Based upon these points, here are some nice and easy action steps...

 Talk to your students about these tangible next steps as you disciple your kids.
