Looking for a place for fun Friday evenings 🌇 and great coffee ☕️? Need somewhere to hold a meeting with your group or cozy spot for a coffee date? ❤️ Maybe you just want to step out of the chaos of life and relax or get some work done in peace. I know a secret! In fact many New Yorkers know!
The party isn’t over! The celebration of freedom still continues with patriotic colors and a cake to cut. The Freedom Cake is back at Compass! Fans had happily reunited with the cake this weekend. Just like last year, it’s going fast! Many are in love with the cake because of it’s eye-catching trio of colors on the surface and in the slices. WE are also fond of the delicious fresh homemade vanilla taste. You may find yourself back at the job today but you can continue celebrating with a satisfying slice! It tastes like a celebration any day after July 4th🎉
TONS of food, good music, dogs, dancing, games and the most awesome view of fireworks from the neighborhood at night. I can definitely say my fourth of July was well spent! As I walked in helping Jay deliver a large tray of chicken empanadas, we saw tables lined up with endless entrees! Pork chops, BBQ Chicken, homemade bread, pelau, turkey burgers, grilled fish, chicharon, macaroni pie, and much more! I saw people playing twister, table tennis, ludo, poker and volleyball. I sat with a group for a monopoly game. It didn’t go so well for me…I went to jail three times and had to pay somebody’s rent for almost every turn. I did come into plenty of money but it was hard to purchase properties that wasn’t already taken during my arrest. Overall I had fun loosing with good (competitive) friends. Speaking of that, two adorable friends joined us for the picnic.
Later on, we danced the night away in the church parking lot celebrating freedom!
I got a free sip of one of the most ordered cold beverages at Compass. After such a GOOD word and amazing service today at HopeNYC Church, we were all treated to a free sample of the caramel frappe! So refreshing and satisfyingly sweet after a sermon about abolishing anxiety. Where else can this happen?
Sunset, breeze and reggae right on Rockaway Blvd! Just a few photos of what endless summer nights look like on Fridays evenings at Compass! This past Friday was Reggae night! There was some dancing, relaxation, and great conversation! People sipped fresh cold fruit juices and great-tasting frappes out in front of Compass’ seating area. There were delicious desserts from Jodi Bakes and a taste of Jamacia. Enjoy endless summer nights at Compass every Friday this summer at 7pm!
Sitting at here at Compass looking to see what’s new! I saw fresh baked Cheese Danishes by Jodi Bakes and the first ever COOKIE CAKE 🍪 at Compass. I also tried the new creation! Creme Brûlée Cheesecake!
A very pretty and petite cheesecake with a torched golden surface topped with cream and a fresh raspberry. All sitting on top of a tasty crispy brown crust. The creamy, fruity, crust flavors made such a complete and outstanding combo. It was so delicious and made a memorable impression on my taste buds. It made people want more. It was nothing ordinary. In fact, it didn’t taste like anything in New York but all the way in Europe as if I were sitting at a Paris Café.
Compass is on a mission to help provide clean drinking water to impoverished countries 💦 and help victims of human trafficking! Every cup of coffee ☕️ Cake 🍰 Thing 🎁 you purchase goes towards the mission and helps make the world better 🌎
It’s a glorious Sunday summer afternoon. You’ve just had a really successful event. Your people showed up and had a great time. Your core cooked up the most scrumptious of dishes. The decor was dazzling and there were some really exciting spontaneous activities that the words in your conversation couldn’t describe.
The event is over and there’s nothing left. Sometimes short social media statuses, selfies & slightly blurred phone pics are all that’s left. Nothing to really convince the rest of the group that they’ve missed it! Nothing that says that your last event was amazing and the next one is worth coming to.
Hope Leaders! I introduce to you MINISTRY BLOGGING! One of the Hope Groups happening this upcoming Fall semester at HopeNYC! This blogging group will be focused on blogging for your ministry! You may be saying ” I got too much on my plate” “I’m A BIT busy planning the next event!” Don’t fret! Find a person in your group that is right for the job! It’s not just anybody 🙂 Someone with an interest, very observant that can remember the special moments and key details of the event. Not to mention someone alittle tech savvy and ready to start posting and SOON! 😀 The group will also cover some brief photography skills. Yes! Even a phone picture needs to have some thought put into it 📱 Are you less of a writer and more of vlogger? (Video Blogging) We will cover that too! This group is a helpful way to promote growth in your ministry WITH PRAYER OF COURSE! Also this could be a special way to capture your event and have a well-written article with photos left for you and your group to remember!

I remember sitting down hearing that yesterday at HopeNYC’s Father’s Day service and I agree! But I must mention that they learned from the best 👆🏽 In fact all of us do! At HopeNYC, your problem is our problem and your victories and achievements is our celebration! Over the years of attending, I see that the men of God here look out for their church family. Always aiming to encourage, give, teach and intercede in prayer for other sons and daughters. Yesterday, many celebrated their fathers, relatives and father figures and highly exalted their Heavenly Father. The one responsible for all good fathers. There were gifts, testimonies, dances, and more! It was such a good time! Many Hope Kidz spoke out in a video how they felt about their dads. WARNING ⚠️ some are cute and some are funny!
