Why are we serving here?

One rewarding way ForColumbia serves its city is by bringing Christians together to serve other churches that are actively working every day to share the gospel and bring hope into the lives of people in Columbia.

Progressive Missionary Baptist Church is a congregation situated in Columbia’s First Ward. This congregation has a long history focusing its efforts outwards on the surrounding neighborhood, hosting neighborhood barbecues and community events. This congregation is aging and could benefit from help in maintaining the large corner property they use regularly to host these events.

We want to offer to make light work with many hands for this faithful congregation. This is why we think your day will be well spent serving at Progressive Missionary Baptist Church.
