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

This VBS Has Never Been Done Before!

Listen and obey the voice of God! We have heard it before but I never expected to get the message talking with Noah about his daily life struggles or riding in through the safari in a giant jeep or hearing it all in one Hebrew word! SHEMA is an original divine God-given idea for VBS 2017. The excited staff dressed up in costume to be bible characters, safari explorers and animals for the children! It was indeed a bible safari of a lifetime! The songs surrounding the theme were original and created by Hopers! I was so happy there was a CD so I can enjoy the songs when it was all over. The kids learned a mighty amount of things this weekend! They also had tons of fun with crafts, games and the bounce house! Not only did they learn about the word of God but their faith was put into action! The kids wrote encouraging letters to other children in Zimbabwe while putting together care packages. The kids also took their relationship with Jesus to the next level and got baptized (In the Jordan river after a skit with Jesus and John the Baptist!) SHEMA was life-changing and amazing! I can definitely say that VBS has never been done like this before! Watch the video for a glimpse of what happened. Photos are below!

Blast Off

Recap: VBS stands for Vacation Bible Study, It’s just for Kids ages 4-10 &  HopeNYC does it every year! Each VBS has a different theme!

BLAST OFF was VBS 2014 at HopeNYC Church! This incredible fun-filled weekend just ended & all the lucky little ones left with hope in their hearts, lots of wisdom, joy & back packs full of school supplies! Yes FREE BOOK BAGS! The children really enjoyed this year’s space themed VBS! The realistic NASA ship, The Blast Off T-shirts, Special space guest: Astronaut Reggie, The space monkeys, The create your own rocket station, Asteroid toss game,  & tons more! The kids also got pizza, snow cones, face paint, prizes & a chance to go wild in the bounce house!  Most importantly they learned about Almighty God & what Jesus has done for them through interesting stories & demonstrations (including a 4D movie) . They had fun learning songs & dance of praise…Yes in 3 Days! The children also got the chance to do a mission. They brought blank sketchers sneakers to life by adding gems & stickers. They decorated these shoes so nicely then filmed a short video… All for children in Panama with no shoes. It warmed my heart to see each kid raise their hand saying they wanted to go there one day. The Hope team will be flying there in September to distribute the wonderful shoes these kids made! VBS this year was out of this world! The most important lesson learned this weekend was to love eachother. The Hope kids showed love to kids in Panama they may never meet! They loved the new friends they have made in VBS, &  we have even gotten cute reports that they “kissed their mommies at home”  I was honored to be a crew leader & really enjoyed spending time with these kids. Scroll down & check out these cute pics of what happened at HopeNYC this weekend! 🙂
