Welcome

Welcome to Valley Community Baptist Church.

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.

Middle School

Middle Schoolers: Come join a group that has been formed and fashioned completely for you! At Valley's Avon Campus, you and your friends can come together, be yourselves, have fun, and get to know God.

Every week, over 130 students (Grades 6-8) just like you gather from all over. We meet for Amp40 and Amp70 on Sundays and for Riot on Wednesdays (during the school year). And if you're a part of the Student Ministry Team (SMT), we meet monthly.
