Church picnic: Brandywine Park – 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!

Church picnic: Brandywine Park

As soon as we arrived at Brandywine Park in Pennsylvania for our annual picnic, the fun got underway! It was hot and we had plenty to eat. There were ribs, chicken, pulled pork, potato salad, greens, beans …  “You Name It” (Shirley Caesar voice).

Topped with scenic views, fresh air, tricycles and rides for the kids, and the large chess & checkerboard, there was also entertainment. Many gathered in groups for hours of laughter, stories and fellowship. And if that wasn’t enough, there was also a train that took us on a 10-minute ride around the park!

This event really brought out the loving family nature of our church.
