On Saturday, April 28, 2000, the National Brotherhood Department of the Progressive Church convened a special day of activities for the brothers at the Headquarters Church in Columbia, SC.  Several hundred brothers from around the Progressive Churches were in attendance. The morning began with prayer from 7:00 to 8:00 a.m., which was opened by the Chairman of the National Brotherhood, Deacon Phil Ross. Following prayer, a fellowship breakfast was held in the Progressive Family Life Center from 8:00 to 9:00. Following breakfast, special break-out seminars were held for the various brotherhood groups.  All in attendance were encouraged and inspired.   We look forward to the next Brotherhood Weekend!
