Grab a coffee from Compass! Make your way upstairs and have your seat! Show control is taking over this Easter Sunday at HopeNYC!
Before you panic! The show is done as a great expression of worship! This production was carefully planned and put together to express the wonderful person of Jesus and show what He has done for the world! It’s going to be a broadway style production! Spectacular lights, sounds, live dancing, great music and more!
THAT’S NOT ALL!

Today Compass Café celebrated the BIG 2 by baking over 200 cupcakes!
Giving 200 presents in sealed envelopes!
Putting out the balloons
What made today even special was that we got to MEET THE FOUNDER of the Zion Project: Pastor Deven Wallace! Today, we got to hear about her incredible story of how it started and the vision she received from God.
I’m excited to come back to Compass this week and bring back my envelope! Each envelope has a gift. It can be a macchiato or an Amazon Firestick. A $100 Compass gift card or Thanksgiving dessert platter! Even the thought of a moyen hot chocolate or free cookie excites me! I didn’t open my gift yet but I’ll keep you posted when I find out this week!
Compass Coffee had just celebrated it’s first birthday! The streets were lined with excited party guests ready for the celebration. I could tell it was going to be huge! All of the party guests received gifts for this birthday! Free coffee, birthday buttons, T-shirts and special elegant cookies made specifically for the occasion by House of Fray!
There were also things that added to excitement such as a live DJ, balloons, my raffle ticket # possibly being called, seeing what the new Jodi Bakes thanksgiving dessert tray looks like and being one of the first 50 people on line to get a discount card.
As we finally went in, each person received their discount card and free T-shirt then started ordering. I saw fresh desserts, shelves filled with candy, and a very happy welcoming staff that lined up to greet everyone at the door. Friends were sitting down enjoying conversations in and out of the cafe as the music played. A few of them were even dancing. The orders varied from coffee to croissants, to tea, to eclairs, to soup, to sandwiches and waffles. Everything everyone had looked absolutely appetizing!
We didn’t keep the fun all to ourselves. Those who walked or drove by got invited somehow by someone. The baristas served coffee and pumpkin bars to pedestrians waiting at the bus stop and firefighters at the station. It was an amazing and memorable birthday.
