Over the last few weeks, the teams met together to strategize! Creating flags, rehearsing a dance, planning a menu, shopping for gear, brainstorming… Serious preparations are being made for Family Day! Not to mention individuals exercising and training on their own time.
There are also boosters (mini games) during church services to win the team some advantages like a headstart in the go-cart race and a free soccer goal.
There has also been preliminaries for flag-football, volleyball, soccer and cricket during the last two Sundays.
There’s plenty to do before the big day! You are welcome to join us

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!
HopeNYC had its annual Super Bowl party! We viewed the game on a super-sized screen fit for a football fan.
Not into the game? Just the wings, fellowship, cozy couches and great music by DJ Mark Xclusive made it SUPER! At half time things got spicy! There was a hot wing eating contest! These wings were drenched in ghost peppers, chili peppers, Habanero and much more heat! The snack shop had a tall menu of game day specials: wings, burgers, fries, hotdogs, nachos, chicken tenders, chips, candy and soda! I crave the wings around this time of year and got my fix with Asian and habanero and buffalo!
Spicy! Sweet! Savory! Satisfying!
These were prepared here at HopeNYC and I can say these are the best wings I’ve ever had. Everyone had a good time here. Football fans, wing lovers, children, commercial watchers….Overall everyone had the ultimate game day experience!
Who did I root for? Originally I cheered on the Falcons from the start but although they didn’t win, I went home with a valuable important lesson.
No matter how bad things may look from the start even if it takes as long as halftime, things can change and you can win!
Spiritually: No matter how bad things look and how short you come, God can change everything in an instant for you. Keep going!
Mother’s Day came back around & HopeNYC was ready.
Our mission: To make sure no mother beneath the HopeNYC roof leave the premises unchanged, under-appeciated and empty-handed. There is only one person who’s up for the challenge and that’s Jesus!
At Hope we say something very special:
We are the hands & feet but God is the face. In fact, that is a very famous hashtag we hopers use so often; #GodIsTheFace
Every mom that walked through the door recieved a jumbo chocolate heart on a stick and beautiful button that says I’m a Hope Mom. They were also treated to a big breakfast. The children’s ministry had a beautiful dance prepared.
The teenagers performed a skit where one brave christian girl in school stands up to her peers & proudly states that her mother is her best friend. She leads by example & encourages her friends to celebrate mother’s day with their mothers. Not the boyfriend, not the gang of kids at the pizza shop, not with the Xbox and not at the nail salon. They go to church and their moms feel loved because of the atmosphere Jesus created for them. The breakfast, the spoken word the “pretend church service”… This girl brought the families together.
Our fabulous Men’s Chior!
