Grace & Mercy

All About Grace & Mercy

In 2012, Valley corporately accepted the challenge put before us by the Elders to take on the responsibility of sharing the grace and mercy of God with every person in Hartford and Litchfield Counties.

We began a campaign to fund this ambitious effort, which over the years has taken on several forms -- multisite churches, church plants, support of other Bible-believing churches, and new methods of doing ministry through Valley. Explore below to see some of the ways we're putting Grace & Mercy into action throughout Connecticut ...

Valley Simsbury

Valley Simsbury was launched in fall 2017 with a passion to bless the unchurched in Simsbury and surrounding towns. Valley Simsbury represents Valley's efforts to try a different form of ministry. Rather than attracting people to a church building, we decentralize and offer opportunities to connect with Jesus and discipleship where we live, work, and play.

Bridge Community Church (Bristol)

In September 2019, Valley Bristol entered into shared ministry with Bridge Community Church, united by the vision to reach the city of Bristol for Christ. Using our combined resources we hope to be stronger together in our efforts to serve God and others in the Bristol community. This combined ministry plan represents the next phase of Valley Community Baptist Church's Grace & Mercy efforts in Bristol. For the previous five years, Valley Bristol gathered at Greene-Hills School in Bristol.
