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.



Baptisms are held four times a year: Thanksgiving service, February Synergy (for students only), Easter service, and at the Farmington River during the summer. Completion of a Baptism Class and brief interview is required prior to Baptism.

What is Baptism? 

Throughout the history of the church, Baptism has been one of the two ceremonies believers are commanded to observe, the other being the Lord's Supper or Communion. Baptism is the ceremony that portrays the beginning of a person's spiritual life in Jesus Christ; as such it is an outward, visible sign of a person's inner commitment to Jesus Christ.

Being baptized does not save you. It is an act of obedience to demonstrate that you have been saved. Jesus Himself was baptized and instructed His disciples to baptize others. When we follow Jesus in baptism, we are making a public declaration that we belong to Christ and that we now have new life in Christ.

You may come from a church tradition where you were baptized as an infant. At Valley, we believe that baptism by immersion in water is to occur after a person makes his or her own decision to follow Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. So in choosing to be baptized, you may now affirm the intent of your parents who baptized you with the hope that you would follow Christ.

Valley offers baptisms several times each year. After completing a Baptism Class and a brief interview, you can be ready for this exciting step of Christian growth!
