Jubilee Baptist Church’s 23rd Anniversary – 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!

Jubilee Baptist Church’s 23rd Anniversary

Founded by Rev. William Ashby years ago, our sister church, Jubilee Baptist Church, has reached its 23rd year of existence. Rev. Dr. Lizzie Townes-Shuler is the current pastor and one of the founding members.

After kicking off the service with a joyous song, we were led into prayer by Evangelist Thomas who thanked God for bringing them through the years and for God’s continual blessings in the years to come.

We were welcomed and given a testimony from the heart of Rev. Eliza Coleman. Afterwards, the senior choir sang “Jesus Promised He’ll Take Care of Me.”  What a blessing in word and music!

Sis. Berry was called to the front to remind us through song that “our father is a millionaire, and were walking on gold.” It didn’t take long for the whole audience to sing along with her, as you truly felt God’s caring spirit!

Before we were greeted by Rev. Williams, our choir sang “Through it All,” a perfect song to describe what God can do for us.

Many blessings to Jubilee Baptist Church as they move on to their next year of service. May they remain strong and continue to grow in God’s grace.
