Praise Dance – 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!

Favorite Bible Passage
“Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp” (Psalm 149:3 KJV)

The Praise Dance Ministry is a different way to praise God.  Led by a director/choreographer and they perform monthly on the fourth Sunday.  They dance to praise our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and hopefully bring more believers to the kingdom.  Even though majority of our members are kids, we welcome all ages to give it a try!  We make sure we are all on the same page; working together to allow every member to learn the moves to the best of his/her ability.  Praise Dance is expressed through facial expression, body movement, and more.  The first mention of dance in the Bible can be found in Exodus 15:20 when Miriam the prophetess, Moses; and Aaron’s sister, took a tambourine in her hand, and all the women followed her, with tambourines and dancing after the Hebrew nation had crossed the Red Sea on dry ground!  Dancing is seen in the New Testament too, with the return of the Prodigal Son (Luke 15).  Finally, praise dance always tells a story, whether of an historical even in our history, or simply to relate our testimony, and our emotional relationship to God
