Depends on your definition of progressive! :)

Well I guess a church that still has Jesus at it's core but also cares about social justice and ecological issues and doesn't have a Republican hidden agenda.  I hate labeling Christianity but I can't think of anything else to decibel what I mean.

Hmm...I go to New Life Providence which I think would fit your description. But thats all the way down here in VA Beach and it looks like you're closer to Yorktown. I know Greensprings Chapel in Williamsburg is a quality church. Sorry I can't help more :/

Thanks, I was going to a church in VB when we first got here but it was too much of a drive and I hate the tunnel.  I'll check the Williamsburg one out.  Thanks smile.gif

Depends on your personal beliefs, but Water's Edge Church in Yorktown and Newport News is pretty progressive, I think.  We enjoyed their Easter service.  Unfortunately, they are a believer's baptism church, which is somewhat of an issue for me, so we haven't pursued attending there regularly, even though my dh would like to (his parents are Baptists) because of their fun and outgoing services.  

 

My personal opinion (and I'm admittedly biased) is that Methodists, in general, are relatively socially and even religiously liberal.  Unfortunately, all of the churches around here seem to be stuck in the mud of the old people, and their services don't meet dh's standard for entertainment.  A Presbyterian minister friend of my parents has vowed not to perform any marriages until EVERYONE can get married (LGBT, etc.).  Unfortunately, he doesn't live here, or I'd be attending his church.  St. Mark's Methodist is a pretty good church here in Hampton.  They have a LOT of little kids, though we haven't been there a while now.  Good luck!
