Blog Blessing 

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. 

Reggae Night Part 2 

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! 

Feels Like Spring Here

Fresh flowers, coloring books, bright stationary, sundae bowls, picnic baskets, water bottles 💦  These are a few of the fun colorful finds in the springtime at Compass cafe. There’s sweet spring themed desserts like the carnival cake 🎡 which tastes like cotton candy. There’s also the Gloreo which is  a sweet chocolatey original Jodi Bakes creation all dressed up as a sunflower 🌻

Milkshakes, sundaes & the banana split are also some cool new items on the menu!

Mom’s Crowning Moment

I love watching this video! Kids from HopeNYC describe their moms and wish them an early Happy Mother’s Day! Most of these parents attended yesterday’s dance where this video was first viewed. Hopers! Find your child or yourself or just hear all of them!

The dance was such a beautiful experience! Proceeds went towards HopeNYC’s International Missions Ministry who partnered with the ZionProject to help rescue sex trafficking victims. Some girls get trapped into it while some are sold by their own parents in an effort to provide for the other siblings in the family. Mothers were honored and treated like royalty last night at HopeNYC while giving towards the cause. Wildfire; the teen ministry of the church made the night into an elegant experience executing beautiful hospitality. Gentlemen escorted the mothers upstairs to their table. The girls attended to the needs of the guest and served the three course meal with the gentlemen joining in. There were gifts for every lady in the room; mom or not. There were special awards for our beautiful pastor, the lady crowned for mother of the year and gentleman of the night. There was also a crowning for best dressed. Entertainment was smooth! Reggae was performed live by Art Crawford and Eddie Neblett with DJ Mark Xclusive. The night could not have ended until the well-known reggae song: She’s Royal was played. It was all a wonderful night filled with entertainment, raffles, decorations, great food, exquisite gowns, dancing, relaxation, appreciation,  love, photos…. check out the pictures! Also stay tuned on the HopeNYC website and Facebook for their upcoming Mother’s day service!

A Quick Trip To Paris

Okay so I actually didn’t go to Paris but I stepped out of New York! I did not catch a flight or lug a tote. Here at Compass Cafe, you set foot in another country! Come in and enjoy a sip of something from overseas.

Where will you go today?

Paris? The place where you can get coffee pressed to perfection? Not to mention neon macaroons bursting with color.

Guatemala? A sip of something Spanish while being allured by its amazing aroma.

Haiti? Enjoy an aromatic earthy blend and get some energy from the Petite Goave coffee. A six year old girl from this country sparked the idea of Compass Cafe a few years ago.

In honor of cupcake month at Compass Cafe, Sips of Hope will be giving away a dozen cupcakes!

I can say that Compass cafe and HopeNYC Church (same building) are truly very exciting places to blog about. There is never a dull moment, always fresh divine ideas, fun events for the community and a good place to start helping others in a significant way (in and out of New York). The contest winner will be announced tomorrow! I’m excited to find out who will win!

Compass Bath Salts

 

There’s vanilla, coconut and peppermint, smells delicious but its not edible!

Compass Cafe has beautifully bottled bath salts bundled with benefits. The escaping fragrance you sniff is just enough to be sold and go home to a pampering. We often think the salts are simply for a good scent but it can:

  • Relax muscles and loosen stiff joints
  • Improve your mood
  • Detoxify the body
  • Treat sore muscles
  • Relieve Inflammation
  • Make an excellent foot soak
  • Eliminate oders
  • Deep clean skin (Removes pollution, oil and dirt. Exfoliates dead skin and dislodge blackheads)

After taking your usual shower, this is good to scrub, sit in, soak your feet or cleanse your face with warm water. I think these will make a fantastic and functional gift for a friend or family. These were created specially for you at Compass Cafe.

Kisses from Kids

I got a box of kisses 😘 after an incredible service at HopeNYC!

In fact! The box was all over the building! Hope Kidz ministry gave a 🍫sweet gift back for supporting! They’re going to do great things this year! If you have or know any kids, visit Hope Kidz on Sunday morning! This is the most exciting children’s ministry I’ve ever seen! The teachers are loving and caring. I often see kids doing fun arts and crafts. They sit at the tables excited with their bibles. I’ve seen them over the years growing  as they learn more about The Lord and His Word. I’ve even seen cool prizes being given out! HopeNYC services are on Sunday mornings at 10:30am.
