Welcome

Welcome to Valley Community Baptist Church.

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.

High School

Ironic #2

At Synergy, we talked about "destroying a domesticated faith" by looking at what Jesus said in Matthew 10:34-38. In this passage, Jesus talks about bringing division and a sword rather than peace. The radical faith Jesus desires means that we must be so committed to Him that we prioritize His kingdom over our personal priorities and those that are closest to us. This culminates when Jesus calls His followers to lose their lives for Him. While this might seem extreme, Jesus says that this is how one truly finds his or her life. Below are some of the questions that the students will be discussing in their groups.

  • Why did Jesus say He did not come to bring peace?
  • What are your thoughts when He talks about dividing family members and "hating" them?
  • What are the kinds of things in people's lives that might demonstrate they are seeking to "find their life"?
  • How might one "love their life" but in the end gain it?
