Q: What do you do when your 5A football team can’t compete with other 5A football teams?
A: You go to 4A.
Lets take a trip down memory lane at FBC Sapulpa…
On April 27, 2003 the Baptist Informer Newsletter for FBC Sapulpa reported the following information:
Total Sunday School attendance was 505 souls.
Three years later in 2006 the attendance was holding steady at around 500+:
Back in those days we used to have the attendance printed weekly. Now we don’t get it at all except through the occasional reports given to the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma. Why could that be?
Fast forward to today’s “purified” 9Marks FBC Sapulpa as featured in the Oklahoma Baptist Messenger and we have the answer:
Attendance has plummeted from 500+, to the 250-299 range and is teetering on the 200-250 range.
But hey, FBC Sapulpa gets an award for highest CP gifts in our attendance bracket. It’s easy to dominate if you pack up your cash, run off your members, and compete in the little league.
Folks, now the numbers are coming in for 2018 and it looks like FBC Sapulpa is officially the SECOND biggest baptist gig in town. This is a historic event. There is another baptist church just down the road with THREE services and most of our old members.
Face it. FBC Sapulpa is gasping for air. It is time to give the bums lording over this flailing congregation a big fat boot to their backside.
Just in case you were wondering. There is no award for Cooperative Program donations for churches with zero in attendance.
