We Are Way-Makers – 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!

We Are Way-Makers

Sunday December 17, 2017

Scripture: Luke 1:67-79

Text: Luke 1:79

Theme: We Are Way-Makers

John the Baptist was never confused with his role, destiny, direction, or duty. John’s humble admission was, “There comes one after me whose sandals I am not worthy to unlatch.” In other words, “There is someone greater than I to come.” John recognized that he was a way-maker for The Way-Maker.

As Christians and church leaders we too are way-makers and prognosticators of the Gospel message. Like John we lift our voices and admonish men and women, boys and girls all in the name of “Preparing the way of the Lord!” The strength of our labor is demonstrated by the power of God’s love. It is a love that enables us and emboldens us to declare with undiminished determination the power of the One who is Heaven’s Way-Maker. We are charged to declare to a dying world that Christ has come and because he has come our path has been blazed and our way has been made.

We pray that you will come and worship with us on this or any Sunday at our 8:00 0r 11:00 am services.

May God richly Bless you and your family.
