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, April 10- Middle School

Topic: Addictions (7 Deadly Sins)

Theme: Lust

Key verses: 1 John 2:16

Key point: The word "lust" in the Bible (1 John 2:16) means a "desire or craving," and it is used in many cases to depict unsanctified desires for sex, possessions, self-righteousness, self-love, etc. We're not limiting this definition to an intense sexual craving, as it is often used, although some groups may slant toward that direction in their study this week.

If we don't kill the unholy cravings inside of us (Romans 8:13), they will invariably and eventually kill us. Because the subject and relevance of lust varies greatly from 6th graders to 8th graders, and from boys to girls, different lessons will be used in huddle groups.

Ask:

1. What did you discuss?

2. What are some other ways lust is manifested?

Some Assembly Required– Use it or Lose it

Luke 12:41-48

As parents, your faith and example are critical for your children. Our hope and desire is that your faith is the foundation for your children and teens. How you use your time, treasure, and talent directly connects with your kids and how they use their time, treasure, and talent.

For those who have been given much, much is expected. God gives us resources with the purpose of using them for His Kingdom. We must use them, or He will move the resources other places. Are you maximizing your ability to step into the resources and opportunities that God has given you?

Our group will be investigating Luke 12:41-48. Read this passage and ask yourself, what would Jesus say to you about what you’re doing to serve your “master”?

What are you doing to prioritize faith as a family? Are you planning time to be in the Bible together? How are you praying for and with your teens?

What are you saying “no” to so you can prioritize faith as a family and engage in a community of believers?
