Celebrating God’s Messengers – 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!

Celebrating God’s Messengers

Sunday October 29, 2017

Scripture: Isaiah 52:7-12

Text: Isaiah 52:7

Theme: Celebrating God’s Messengers

This is the last Sunday of Clergy Appreciation Month, the Lord led me to bring a message celebration for the work of Associate Clergy persons (ministers).

Associate Ministers are often overlooked, but in many cases they are the lifeblood of the church. They work tirelessly teaching, visiting the sick, praying, doing workshops and seminars, preaching and filling in for the pastor, just to name a few things. But they do not receive the recognition from the church or the community.

Our text reminds us that they are God’s Messengers, they also bring the message of peace, good news and salvation to the people. They give hope, to those who believe things are hopeless. They teach the people not to look at their circumstances, but look to the God, who can change their circumstances for the better.

I urge you to celebrate your Associate Ministers and acknowledge them for the work they do and the blessing that they are to the church and the community.

Hope to see you on Sunday. May God continue to bless you and your family.
