The Secret to Lasting Peace – 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!

The Secret to Lasting Peace

Sunday, October 8, 2017

Scripture: Philippians 4:1-9

Text: Philippians 4:6

Theme: The Secret to Lasting Peace

Throughout this month we offer a Prayer for Domestic Violence Prevention. There are many people in and out of our congregation who suffer from the abuse of others and live their lives in fear, anxiety and constant worry. There are people who live in constant fear of bullying, both physical, emotional, through the internet and social media. We have people who have lost everything they have, because of the recent natural disasters, (hurricanes, tornadoes and earthquakes). People who fear acts of terrorism, both domestic and foreign. People who fear leaving their homes, due to the violence in their communities.

Yet through this passage of scripture, the Apostle Paul lets us know that that we can receive God’s peace in two ways.

  1. Peace comes through Prayer (Phil. 4:6-7)
  2. Peace comes through Positive thinking (Phil. 4:7-8)

On Sunday, October 8th, we will show how peace comes through prayer.

We pray that you will join us at either our 8:00 or 11:00 am services.

May God continue to Bless you
