Membership has benefits!

Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk so that by it you may grow in your salvation, now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.
I Peter 2: 2-3 (NIV)
The New Member's Ministry exists to ensure that every new member finds their place of service at Progressive. As a New Member of Progressive, you are a gift from God. We are glad God ordered your path to be part of our fellowship. If there is anything we can do to assist you, please don't hesitate to call.

I'm a new member! How do I get started?

Welcome! We praise God you are here! To get started, we ask that you complete our New Members Experience, comprised of three components.

1) Intake. When you join, we partner with you to keep in touch.

2) Welcome Launch Party. To launch your journey at Progressive, we throw you a party. This is a 1 hour fellowship with Pastor Charlie, key leaders, and other new members that includes a tour of the church, an introduction to the church structure with food & fellowship. Please use the Welcome Party Registration Form in the side column to sign up.

The next Launch Parties will be

3)  Orientation Classes. The First Step Orientation classes are designed to orient new members to the essentials of the Christian Faith and the uniqueness of the Progressive Baptist Church. Classes meet at 9:30 a.m. every Sunday in the computer room on the mezanine level. 
A new series begins EVERY FIRST SUNDAY and you are encouraged to participate no matter when you joined Progressive. 

As a member, what is expected of me?

We are so glad you're here! As an new member, we ask that you:
  1. Attend and Complete the New Member's Experience within 3 months of joining the church.
  2. Serve in a ministry. God has given you special ability to do something well. We will help you to find areas in the church to use your special ability.

Progressive offers several meaningful discipleship opportunities. They are Sunday School, Wednesday Noon, Men and Womens Discipleship, and Growth Group. There is a place for you!
  4. Attend: The more opportunities you give God to speak to you, the more progress you will see in your life. Our worship services are designed to connect you with God. Above all else, regularly attend worship.
