Family, I pray this writing finds you well. This past two weeks has been a challenging time for the Progressive Baptist. Last week Friday we held the home-going service for Deacon Donald Foster and on Tuesday we had a home-going service for Rev. Martin Woodard. Let us keep our family, their families and all families who are grieving in prayer in this season.
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted. He saves those whose spirits have been crushed. Psalm 34:1
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. Rev 21:4
The adults will have their regular weekly class today, Saturday at 5 pm on the regular call in/zoom line. Youth have their Sunday school on the 2nd and 4th Sundays at 6 pm.
As always, we have a regular churchwide chat at 7 PM on Sunday evening. Join us as we share happenings in the church and, recently, I’ve been discussing dynamics about COVID and getting the vaccine. And if you are interested in participating in a discussion about the vaccine, please notify the church office at 414-462-9050 or firstname.lastname@example.org
I was blessed to have the following two articles show up on social media-one about post-George Floyd and the other is biographical:
This is a reminder to join us on Wednesdays at 12 noon for a midweek message from one of the ministers.
A Little New Music
Being in the pandemic and running the prayer line has caused me to dig a little deeper and look for diversity of music to share during our time of worship, fellowship and prayer each day on the prayer line. Below are a few links to some songs that are new to me and that have blessed me along the way:

- https://youtu.be/ZPX-RdeitF8. Fix Me New

Black Church Week for Healing of HIV/AIDS | WINGS
If we were not in pandemic, we would be at Progressive tonight enjoying the wings concert for the healing of HIV and AIDS. We still, nonetheless must continue in prayer. I am asking that we all commit to lifting a prayer at least once a day for God to continue to intervene to heal HIV and AIDS and to accelerate our recovery from the coronavirus.
In abounding love,
