A Living Hope – 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!

A Living Hope

Sunday October 15, 2017

Care and Comfort Ministries Anniversary

Scripture: 1 Peter 1:3-9

Text: 1 Peter 1:5

Theme: A Living Hope

1. The source of the hope: the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ (v.3).
2. The inheritance of the hope (v.4).
3. The assurance of the hope (v.5).

One of the things that we as Believers in our Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ must realize is that no matter what adversities that we face on this earth, we have the hope of spending eternity with God.

This passage teaches us that in eternity we have more waiting for us than we could ever imagine here on earth. Even if you are poor on earth, you will be rich in heaven. If you were sick on earth, you will be well in heaven. If you were unemployed on earth, you will have a job in heaven. If you were homeless on earth, you will have a home in heaven.

I pray that you will come worship with us this Sunday and come to realize that once you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, Goodness and Mercy will follow you all the days of your life and you will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
