2015 Year of The Child
Wednesdays at Progressive Baptist Church!

This initiative is named Year of the Child, but it is our desire to minister to the needs of the entire family. For each person placed in the body at Progressive Baptist Church, there is a place of service for you and the Lord has placed your name on it! It is now up to you to walk in that high calling! Step up to the plate "Team Work, Makes the Dream Work!".
