The one who gave us everything we have. After service, come enjoy HopeNYC’s Thanksgiving feast! There will be plenty of food and friends which makes it a great pre-celebration to the big day!

What’s the Soup of Day?

New Yorkers are warming up as temperatures are dropping! Ridding their closets of rompers and casting aside cold shoulder tops to make room for tunics and snug sweaters!

 

Coffee, hot chocolate and teas are ideal ways to warm up this season! Compass Cafe’ has all those things including the #1 solution: SOUP!

Soups at Compass are ultra-delicious, hearty, made from scratch and served in adorable crock bowls on a knitted coaster (If you plan to stay)

Sadly, the soups are only here for a limited time but what’s exciting is that there is a different one every day served with bread on the side made from scratch by Jodi Bakes! One day it can be loaded baked potato soup served with buttermilk bread or a chicken taco soup with cornbread. There’s other exiting soups like pinto beans with smoke turkey, pasta fagoili, ham and potato chowder and more! If you have $5 in your pocket and want to warm up quickly with something satisfying and balanced, all you have you to do is come into Compass to find out: What’s the soup of the day?  

Loaded baked Potato Soup topped with scrumptious scallions and bacon bits served with a slice of buttermilk bread made from scratch by Jodi Bakes.
Chicken taco soup garnished with cilantro, crispy tortillas chips and cheese! This tasty soup is loaded with good veggies like beans and corn and it is served with a slice of fresh baked cornbread made from scratch by Jodi Bakes.

 

Hazel just brought out fresh-baked buttermilk bread!

 

There’s a new soup of the day every day! These are some of the best tasting soups you will ever find in NYC! Again made from scratch with great care so you can be nourished on the go! 

Compass Cafe is located on 142-82 Rockaway Blvd, Jamaica NY 11436

The Q7 and Q40 both stop right in front! Read more about the cafe’s MISSION HERE 

HopeNYC is preparing to make this the best Christmas ever…for children overseas.

Build an Ark was the theme of HopeNYC’s 2017 Toy Drive! Hopers picked up a hammer and worked together to raise the funds to provide tons of toys (possibly an Ark-full)

I noticed the genuine cheerfulness in giving until the drive was over. Putting a smile on a child’s face has always been an important mission at HopeNYC. A child may be receiving their first toy this year. The toys will be off to the Caribbean this Christmas: Trinidad, Guyana, Jamaica, and Belize! High quality popular brand new toys. As someone would say “Toys you would buy for your own children.”

What makes this year even more exciting is that some of the Hopers will be going to the

countries to distribute these toys in person.

Special gifts were given to every participant of the Toy Drive so they won’t forget the time they got to Build An Ark.

HopeNYC has big plans for Christmas even in New York! Read my previous blog about the Christmas parade. Look out for info this upcoming month on www.HopeNYC.com or on the Facebook Page: http://www.Facebook.com/HopeNYC

A peek into HopeNYC’s 2017 Christmas Parade!

You would hear the mechanical melody of drilling, pounding and jigsawing to the sounds of Christmas music if you took a walk inside HopeNYC. Hopers are prepping and constructing daily in the warehouse to build the most spectacular unthinkable parade floats! These floats will beautifully stroll down the streets of Rockaway blvd in lights and tell the true meaning of Christmas! You may also see familiar favorite characters and Christmas traditions.

Come be part of the celebration at HopeNYC’s 2017 Christmas Parade on Sunday December 3rd at 5pm! The route starts on 130th street Rockaway blvd and ends at HopeNYC with extra festivities! You have early notice so come get a good view and some great pictures!

Fall In

When autumn first sets in, you begin to feel a sense of empowerment like it’s time to GET READY! We have entered fall about a month ago and it’s always been a crucial time in our year: It’s time to go back to school, get back to work from vacation, get serious again about our New Year’s resolutions, the time to kick into high gear and prepare for big holiday rushes and events… Get back to what is important.

More than just a beautiful service in an autumn scene, FALL IN is about the timing of God. FALL IN LINE with the Holy Spirit. CONQUER the things you face! LISTEN AND OBEY the voice of God. Get out there so you can REAP THE HARVEST and BUILD AN ARK! Don’t just say a quick prayer, GET INTENSE with your worship! FIND THE RHYTHM and GET IN STEP with the way The Spirit of God is moving at this time NOW

The names in bold are significant commands and most are the names of past ministry events at HopeNYC. Yesterday, HopeNYC had FALL IN at Baisely Pond Park! See the pics below to get a glimpse of the love and the joy of the Hope family!

Fresh Oil! What did it do? (New Link)

It was a powerful weekend in Brooklyn and many received fresh oil!

Fresh Oil Conference was held at Purpose Life Church this weekend and it was both a reviving and fun time for women. If you can get on a computer to register or could have heard anything from the tent during Saturday’s session, you were not excluded.

EVERYTHING that happened in the conference would just uplift your spirit more and more. Every prayer spoken into the atmosphere, the words of the songs, every artistic act of exhortation, the special gifts, the music, every visiting guest minister, the senior pastors and of course every message that was preached! Everything that happened was carefully orchestrated by God.

Learning about physical and spiritual oil was amazing. Receiving it will leave you speechless! Many women left the conference changed with a refreshed anointed spirit.  Also with a Fresh Oil goodie bag, T-shirts, fabulous photos, raffle prize, and a bottle of anointing oil.

Pastor Sharo from HopeNYC
Our Pastor brought an incredible Word about Fresh oil on Friday night! I learned so much & still thinking about it now!

I didn’t open my 🎁

Sips of Hope celebrates a special birthday! Two years of making a way of freedom for precious girls enslaved by human trafficking! Two years of providing clean drinking water to quench the thirst in several countries! Two years of serving good quality coffee and pastries to New Yorkers and providing a tranquil area in a busy city.

Today Compass Café celebrated the BIG 2 by baking over 200 cupcakes!

Giving 200 presents in sealed envelopes!

Putting out the balloons

What made today even special was that we got to MEET THE FOUNDER of the Zion Project: Pastor Deven Wallace! Today, we got to hear about her incredible story of how it started and the vision she received from God.

I’m excited to come back to Compass this week and bring back my envelope! Each envelope has a gift. It can be a macchiato or an Amazon Firestick. A $100 Compass gift card or Thanksgiving dessert platter! Even the thought of a moyen hot chocolate or free cookie excites me! I didn’t open my gift yet but I’ll keep you posted when I find out this week!

Two beautiful powerful anointed ladies! Selflessly bringing help and revival around the globe!

Packed shop and long lines today!
