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.


Growth Groups


One Another Groups -- Fall 2018


We want you to get connected at Valley.

 This fall, our various groups (Growth Groups, Communities, Men’s Fraternity, Moms Bible Study, Tuesday night groups, and others) are helping you to experience biblical community as we focus on the "One Another” statements of the New Testament (love, encourage, forgive, serve, comfort).

In our worship services, Pastor Jay will lead us in an eight-week series called The “One Another” Community beginning September 8-9.
