Hello Progressive,

​In response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) health crisis, I want to encourage you to be cautious, but refrain from succumbing to panic and fear. Remind yourself of God’s promises in Philippians 4: 6-7 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Know that God is able and present and He hears our prayers. And let us not forget that the church remains the church whether gathered or scattered. It might also indirectly remind us of the gift of gathering that we too often take for granted. As we continue to pray, be strong in the Lord and watch Him work on our behalf.

There are things that will change at Progressive Baptist
Church until further notice.

1.  No physical service on Sunday. We will no longer meet together for service. 

2.  Sunday service will be streamed
