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 Information


What is a Growth Group?

A Growth Group is a small group of about 5-15 adults who meet weekly to study and apply the Bible and build relationships with God and each other.

What is the meeting format?

We meet weekly, primarily in homes, for about an hour and a half. We use provided discussion questions and Scripture from the weekend message for our Bible study. We spend time getting to know one another, and praying for and encouraging one another.

Is there a group near me and how do I join?

There may be a group near you. Check out the list of current groups with locations and times. New groups are started throughout the year. You can join by registering on the website, or you can contact Mary in the Adult Ministry Office at Valley.

What about childcare?

Each group is different and is encouraged to find its own best way to take care of the children. We can help with ideas if your group can't find a solution.

Why are Growth Groups important?

It can be hard to meet people and find a place to belong in a church. We want you to get connected and grow in your relationship with Christ and with others at Valley.

One of our values is KNOWING the truth of God and His Word; it is our goal that "every person at Valley is taking steps to grow in maturity in Christ through biblically authentic relationships centered around God's Word."

God doesn't intend for us to go it alone. He designed us to grow and flourish in relationship with others. Joining a Growth Group is one of the best way to do that.

Can I bring a friend?

Yes! Friends are welcome!
