VBS

(Vacation Bible School)

Happens at Hope every year around August!

It’s an exciting FREE 2 days for kids filled with fun, learning, games, music, prizes, and an amazing experience! Last year’s theme was a safari. What will our building transform into next? Details and dates to come!

Beach Baptism

There are several baptisms through the year at HopeNYC but always one at the beach. It’s such a special and memorable way to get baptized Hopers get to enjoy a beach day afterwards along with a possible volleyball tournament. Details and date to come!

Now here are some summer tips!

Sunscreen: Applying your sunscreen indoors is important! This stuff is SLOWLY absorbed by your skin. Allow up 15 minutes before stepping outside to ensure protection! It’s definitely important to have on when the sun is at its peak between the hours of 11am-2pm

Freebies & discounts:

  1. Brooklyn Botanical Garden is free on Friday mornings!
  2. Long Beach is free after 6pm to relax, walk around, wet your toes, photograph, and play beach games! Read about the last time I went!
  3. The met museum in Manhattan takes a donation of your choice 25 cents and up from students!
  4. The Aquarium has discounted tickets right now because it’s other exhibits are under construction! The ticket includes a cool 4D movie!
  5. Bryant Park has fun free juggling lessons all week long! Follow @Bpjugglers

Photographers: Look into a polarizing filter! It will make your landscape photograph clearer and help everything in your image to be the proper color. Rivers, oceans and sky can loose it’s beautiful blue tone from yellow sun rays but a filter will bring out those blues much more!

These are the tips! I hope you enjoy and hope to see you the Freedom concert

How’ve you been?

Goodmorning! It is 8:15am!

It has been a couple of weeks since I have posted something & I do miss my pals here on wordpress. I have been seeing your new posts in my emails. Instresting, reads, interesting titles,  interesting photos & interesting mini sermons (For the those writing faith blogs). As the new mails flood my inbox I admire your detication & commitment for your blogs! If you are writing something to inspire & help make a significant change in the lives of others, I hope your audience grows in numbers & those around the globe will notice your blog.

An update on HopeNYC

HopeNYC, How has it been? These past couple of weeks has been so far some of the most amazing ever! Just being filled up with the word on Wenesdays. Being full of fire & enery with the teens on Friday. Seeing the colors of dancers & the finely dressed people worshipping on a Sunday. I am just so glad to be apart of this church & know the friends I met there. Sometimes living life isn’t easy …. even being a christian & striving to follow our perfect Lord & savior gets real challeging at times too but going to HopeNYC to grow, worship, learn, pray, work, praise, testify love, fellowship… It really lightens the LOAD & helps me more to trust God to remove it, break me through it & make it all better. Many have testified that they have needed hope & they found it at HopeNYC. If any of you bloggers get to visit New York City, I urge you to visit at least one services. I visited the Famous Statue of Liberty, Toys R us & been to Time Square so many times but they all can’t compare to ONE visit at HopeNYC Church. You won’t be a stranger at all because you will surely feel at home.

Yesterday 

Baptism Exposed: Where men go to die.

Last Wednesday what was suppose to be a 1 man demonstration turned into a baptism! As we dug deeper into the topic of baptism, many got the opportunity to do it again with changed motives or for 1st time! Everyone went in the water to put things to death. Strongholds & keep-backs that needed to go! That night so many strongholds were buried beneath the water & everyone came up delivered, liberated & changed. Everyone desired what God had in store! I know I do!

Watch this video of what happened that night & read the different perspectives in who Jesus is to them.
