Are You Cheating On 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!

Are You Cheating On God?

Text: Hosea 3:3

Scripture: Hosea 3:1-15

Sermon for Sunday February 3, 2019

When we look at this passage of scripture it is symbolic to our relationship with God. Each one of us male and female need to picture ourselves and our walk with God as we look at this text.

The heart and love of God is now being pictured in one of the most dramatic ways possible. Hosea’s adulterous wife had forsaken him and the children to live with another man. The couple were as estranged and alienated from one another as two people can be. Yet Hosea was instructed by God to demonstrate an unlimited love for his wife. Despite all the pain and suffering Gomer had caused, Hosea was to seek reconciliation with her. This suspenseful drama is played out in Scripture.

We all must take time to look at our relationship with God and see how we are engaged in activities that take us away from being faithful to God and His Word. We need to look at how we are cheating on God and take the corrective measures to reconcile with God.

I pray that you will come and worship with us on Sunday mornings at our 8:00 or 11:00 am services or on Wednesdays at our 12:00 service. Sunday School is held at 9:15 on Sunday mornings and we have Christian Education classes being held on Wednesdays at 1:00 & 7:30 pm and every other Wednesday at 5:00 pm.

I pray that you will come and worship or study God’s Word with us. May God bless you and your family.
