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

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.

Wednesday, October 10- Middle School

Topic: Your heavenly family

Main Point: Every day, we have the option. We can build others up or tear them down. The church is the representation of Christ in the world today, but how many of us truly represent Him well? Stop gossiping, making fun, calling names, or elevating yourself above others!  Start acting like the Body should!

Key verse: Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.  (Colossians 3:12-15)

Questions:

1. Why is it important that you "live at peace" with your fellow family members here at church?

2. What did you think about the scenarios you talked about? Should we stick up for our Christian friends even if they aren't in our school friend group?

 

Wednesday, October 10 - High School

The Bible says, if you simply hear the Bible, but don't follow it, you lie to yourself.

  • Why do you think this is the case?

James tells us to show the love of God by our actions, like helping those in need.

  • What are needs that you observe around you every day?
  • How do you think our family can better demonstrate that love by our actions?
  • What gifts do you think you have that you can use for demonstrating your faith?
  • What are the biggest barriers to serving others? Is there anything we can do about them?
