Be Thankful Unto God – Co-op City Baptist Church

Church Building Fund

$2,690 of $0 raised


“The doctors said I probably wouldn’t live very long….”  

Our founding pastor, the late Rev. Julius Sasportas, would often share the story of his fragile start in life. But he defied the odds and lived for over 90 years.

Rev. Sasportas’ experience is a metaphor for the Co-op City Baptist Church.

We’ve had to scrape, sacrifice and fight for everything. Although we’ve been knocked down many times, by God’s grace, we have never been KNOCKED OUT.

Any day now, cranes will arrive on the site, and the “digging” will begin!

Our new church edifice will include a state-of-the-art facility to house a comprehensive youth education and recreational program.

But, we can do more things faster for our kids if we’re not in debt. Working in the red is why many large community-based projects shut down. And we will not fail these kids! We need to earn $100,000 in a year.

Kindly donate, and share this link through social media so others can join this effort.

It’s easy to say you want our kids to excel in math, reading, technology and science, but will you actively support such an outcome?

Even if you don’t know us, please do this **(seriously)** …

Pray over your credit card. Then make your donation as a love offering to God. He will bless you for being a blessing to children.  Thank you!

Be Thankful Unto God

Sunday November 23, 2019

Scripture: Psalm 100:1-5; Text: Psalm 100:4

The Psalmist is letting us know in this passage of scripture that we must be thankful unto God, for everything that we have. We must be thankful unto God, for the very life that we live. We must be thankful unto God, for all things.

Psalm 100 is the last in a series of psalms that emphasize the Lord as King. It describes God’s people going into His house to worship Him, and it spells out what their attitude should be as they go. It also calls out to all the people of the earth, urging them to recognize that the Lord is God and inviting them to receive Him.

In a very practical sense, this psalm teaches us the actual purpose of the church: to joyfully express praise and thanksgiving to God, to present ourselves for God’s service, and to urge all people of the earth to come into a relationship with God through His Son.

Psalm 100 teaches us what our attitude should be when we go to God’s house. Not only should we come before the Lord with gladness and joy, but we should enter His presence with thanksgiving and praise. God is good to us every day. He is ever faithful to us, and His love never fails. As we walk or ride to church, we should prepare our hearts to give thanks by reflecting on all He has done for us in the past week. As we walk through the doors, our hearts should be filled with praise. When we enter the sanctuary, and the service begins, we should lift our voices and wholeheartedly sing the praises of our good, loving, and faithful God.

We pray that you will come and worship with us. Our services are held Sundays at 8:00 and 11:00 am; Sunday School at 9:15am. Wednesdays noon day worship. Bibles Study classes Wednesdays at 1:00 & 7:30 pm. Plus every other Wednesday at 5:00 pm.

May God continue to Bless you and your family.
