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.

World Outreach Weekend



 November 17-19, 2018

 saying is believing 

I have become all things to all people, that by all means I might save some.
1 Corinthians 9:22

Orality refers to reliance upon the spoken word for communication. Orality is an ancient phenomenon that continues to the present. Oral societies pass along everything that matters from one generation to another without putting anything in writing. They rely on the spoken word, including its sung and chanted forms.

Even in highly-literate societies, technology has driven people toward using voice and photos, rather than text, to communicate. Today's world has more access to cell phones than it does to toilets! So, even in cultures where people can read, a growing number prefer forms of communication that don't require reading.
