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

There are communal dinners on most Saturday and Tuesday evenings at the Avon Campus. We also meet as small groups and classes throughout the week.  We look forward to meeting you.

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.

Middle School (Riot)

This past Sunday, in our NextGen Parenting Class, we heard Doug Fields talk about a new term called “technoference", which is when technology interferes with relationships and life. A study showed that perceived inaccessibility from one or both parents was the No. 1  factor that produced anger, rage, and hostility in kids. Being distracted by our phones, laptops, tablets, etc. is a challenge for us as parents.  Phones and technology can also be a distraction for our middle school students. 

In this second week of our “phone” series, Caren will be talking about the choice we have to make in a practical way: What is more important, our priority/trust in God or our phones? In Isaiah 40:25-31 we read about God’s incomparable greatness! Possible topics to discuss with your student:

  • Is it possible that we enjoy “fun stuff” on our phones such as games and social media, and then find ourselves saying “but I don’t have time to read my devotion and Bible?"
  • Is there a way we might change how we use our time so we can make God a priority (instead of our phones)?
  • What do you think would be the result of making God our priority in the coming week?
