I got 10 presents at this birthday party yesterday!
- Stress ball
- Chocolate bar
- Cake pop made by Pint Sized Bites! (Ate it!)
- Bumper sticker
- Stack of sticky notes!
- A CD created by our very own band!
These are what the T-shirts look like!
What makes these gifts so special is that they’re all customized for this special occasion! There’s also a new surprise!
HopeNYC launched it’s new & improved website!
You can check that out now at www.HopeNYC.com
On that site, you can read about the church, view photos, listen to announcements, give offering and watch services live: it’s great for those who are living out of New York ✈️
Yesterday overall was an amazing Easter! We heard a fantastic Word, new guest got all the of the 10 gifts PLUS a free book! After 10 years! Like I say often in this blog…. HopeNYC is the greatest thing to hit New York!
Yes! I am still revived over the concert yesterday! It was Hope Revived: Labor day edition and it was indeed unforgettable!
Everyone in the area used the exclusive Snapchat filter!
Before I dive into the concert, this event was also on a mission! The local missions ministry at HopeNYC dished up a Caribbean favorite: Bake and fish to raise funds for the hurricane Harvey victims in Texas.
Compass served up delicious desserts and coffee outside on the mobile station to continue there every day mission: to provide clean drinking water to other countries and help victims of sex trafficking! Right now for the month of September, proceeds from the Caramel frappe (The best seller) is going towards hurricane Harvey victims!
The concert kicked off with a beautiful vibrant performance from doll hope folk dancers 💃
All the artist were on fire 🔥 The worship was intense, the testimonies were miraculous and everyone could not stop dancing! Flags of different countries were being waved praising God!
This is just a glimpse of what went down yesterday! This video consist of phone & drone vids combined! I know its not DSLR quality but I wanted to put this together!
Two Upcoming Amazing Conferences!
This will be an INTENSE weekend for teens to experience revival & get in a deeper relationship with God! This youth conference will be held at HopeNYC church (Hosted by WildFire Teen Ministry) and EVERY teenager is invited! This weekend will be packed with a fantastic line of some of the best gospel guest artists and our guest speaker: Pastor JC Worley with a life-changing word!
There will also be fun, games and prizes! Food will be provided for all teens! Registration is only $10
In10City is starting on September 8th at 7pm with an evening service followed by the second part on Saturday September 9th at 9am!
God is about to do an awesome work in this conference. This can get intense!
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!
To You! Sips of Hope Group members, Facebook friends and WordPress readers today.
I pray that you will have a ridiculously awesome day that will be much smoother and easier than expected. I pray for progress and plenty to be accomplished each passing hour. I pray for triumph over your challenges that will not only be a moment of sweet victory but a victory that will last forever. I heard that gratitude is one of the best feelings ever. I pray that you would experience gratitude in a very real way. I pray that you will remember every good thing that has ever happened to you and each precious person placed in your life. I not only pray that you will be helped but you will help someone today. Making the difference you never thought you’d make. Praying for stress, depression, fear and every expectation for a bad day to clear out so your thoughts can be clear with peace and simply good things. Praying that today will be one of your best days. Have a blessed day in the name of Jesus! The God of Hope.
Yes it happened again but this time there was more! We all enjoyed the evening breeze with sweet Reggae music & spicy flavor! Jerk chicken wings with fries & mango chow!
After I’ve had some, I decided to cool things down with a tall delicious Oreo milkshake! Too tall! I had to share!
Ladies played an intense game of ludo while men competed in a close round of dominoes!
It’s not reggae night without singing along and grooving the Jamacian way! Check out the rest of the pics on: The Compass Facebook! Endless summer nights continues every Friday this summer at 7pm!
