Family and Friends Day – 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!

Family and Friends Day

Christ gave us a wonderful, sunny morning for our Family and Friends Day!

During service, Sis. Richardson delivered a welcome address that warmed our hearts and prepared us for the day’s fellowship. Sis. Willoughby gave a short testimony, which was followed by the Nurses Ministry’s health moment.

Sis. Vanessa Potter led the choir in a rousing rendition of “A Mighty Good God” that moved the spirit through the entire congregation.

Rev. Williams’ sermon, “Blessed are they that dwell in God’s house,” offered a powerful message about building a sound relationship with God and not allowing sin to cripple us.

Three key bullet points highlighted in the preaching of Psalm 84 were:

1. Tell God that you love Him and love being in His presence (vv. 1-3).
2. Thank God for the blessings of His presence (vv. 4-7).
3. Ask God to hear your prayer (vv. 8-12).
