Praise Dance Ministry Anniversary – 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!

Praise Dance Ministry Anniversary

One thing we can always feel proud of is our Dance Ministry. Over the years the faces have changed, but this element of praise has always remained an uplifting blessing to our congregation. And when we say years, we mean 12 to be exact! Today’s festivities were a celebration of this milestone.

Presentations included: Miracle Temple, Kelly Temple, and Church of New Vision. They wore colorful outfits, as they performed their astounding art to inspirational music. The day also included a solo performance by our dance leader, Mr. Alfred Gallman, who at the youthful age of 67 showed no signs of slowing down.

We commend the hard work and dedication of our youth and its leaders over the years, including Kerrie-Ann Sutherland, past dance advisor, and Mr. Gallman who currently leads the Dance Ministry. May the Lord continue to bless this ministry as it reaches the hearts of our members and others.
