The Kids are Busy!

School is not the only thing this week on the minds of the kids at HopeNYC. They have been busy helping victims of human trafficking! Creating over 60 candy-filled boxes! Taking charge of a breakfast menu! Supporting the ministry! Prepping for a 2018 launch event!

Kids have a blast at HopeNYC church. They

learn, pray, grow and play but also take care of their ministries. HopeKidz and Tweens help kids grow in Christ all year round in the most exciting creative ways. They’re constantly aiming to make each year better than the last. They also make new kids feel welcomed and at times make it their mission to help others across the globe.

Sending over some shoes & toiletries over the past summers.

Hope Kidz

This week, Hope Kidz created love boxes just in time for Valentine’s Day! They were brightly colored, beautifully wrapped and filled with chocolate! Hope Kidz provided the perfect presents for your loved ones and supported their ministry financially!

HopeNYC Tweens

The Tweens ministry is exclusively for kids ages 10-12. They meet every Friday at 6pm for fellowship, worship, games, prizes, food & The Word! They also plan trips & have fun video contests!

They are launching with their first meeting tomorrow at 6pm! After a fantastic service they are serving up breakfast on Sunday at Compass: Ham and cheese sliders with tater tots! They successfully sold tickets over the week and all proceeds are going towards rescuing victims of human trafficking and providing clean drinking water to impoverished countries.

I’m just typing in amazement! Being a weekly attendee at HopeNYC, I see their enthusiasm, faith and passion in what they do! This has been a busy week but they’re going accomplish a lot this year!

It’s a Date!

On February 22nd, set aside some special time to spend a romantic evening with a man.  I understand Thursday night might seem like a bit of an inconvenience but please understand! This man would die just to be with you. He has your best interest at heart and wants to see you happy. He is showing up so you can have life and have it more abundantly. You can’t hide your feelings from Him because He is all-knowing and He understands that you too also want to spend some time with Him. In fact you feel desperate in your soul for Him with a true honest desire for just a moment with Him. You truly know that He loves you for you are. Even your worst didn’t change His mind. You know the romance on this date far outweighs the love of a family member, spouse, and partner in courtship. This my friends, can only seem to be a date with Jesus. 

We all need to steal away and spend some time with Him in prayer. 20 somethings! You get to spend ONE SPECIAL EVENING to focus on His love. The night is called: It’s a date! Come to this love themed night and enjoy some great food, desserts and mocktails! You get to mingle and form friendships with other 20 somethings in the room PLUS hang out at one of the coolest cafe’s in NY after closing! Don’t forget to WEAR SOMETHING RED! The color of love. We’ll all be wearing it! We’ve got an incredible Thursday night planned for exclusively for the 20 somethings! If that’s you gotta be there at CompassCoffee!

I ALMOST skipped breakfast this morning!

I was rushing out of the house getting ready for a fantastic Sunday service at HopeNYC. Time was ticking & there was still quite a few things to do in the short remaining 15 minutes I had left. I definitely couldn’t get it all done if making breakfast was one of them.

Did I skip breakfast just to get to church in time?

No! Because the church had the breakfast!

The Compass Café part of the building to be exact! They were serving up an excellent Trini breakfast that rescued my appetite! It tasted great & I was surely satisfied. Only a simple $5 gets you the breakfast and goes back into Compass’ mission: to provide clean drinking water to impoverished countries and help rescue victims of human trafficking. My breakfast this morning went towards helping someone and there’s nothing more filling than that.

In the weeks to come they will be serving all kinds of breakfasts on Sunday morning inspired by different places. (I personally can’t wait for Tex Mex and southern breakfast)

Today’s breakfast was two bakes, fried aloo ( potato) and corn beef.

For my dinner hosts, I’m also bringing some Sweet Insanity by Lisa cookies! The cookies were primarily for us (me and my husband) but we wanted to share so others can enjoy a treat that came from another fantastic brilliant baker at HopeNYC.

We ordered two dozen in multiple flavors: cranberry white chocolate chip (My Fav), pecan sandies, chocolate chip, coconut cloud, chocolate chip and butterfinger! I️t would take several long paragraphs more to describe every detail of the delectably amazing taste of these cookies! Grab yourself a box one day, these cookies got what it takes to satisfy you!

As you see, some of the cookies are gone from the box. They were either eaten or set aside for giving. These are going WOW the crowd 😮

I️’m not sure if I will be able to record taste reactions later on which is why I️ post now in excitement!

I’m beyond confident that they’re going to love the desserts but after a good thanksgiving meal!

What’s the Soup of Day?

New Yorkers are warming up as temperatures are dropping! Ridding their closets of rompers and casting aside cold shoulder tops to make room for tunics and snug sweaters!


Coffee, hot chocolate and teas are ideal ways to warm up this season! Compass Cafe’ has all those things including the #1 solution: SOUP!

Soups at Compass are ultra-delicious, hearty, made from scratch and served in adorable crock bowls on a knitted coaster (If you plan to stay)

Sadly, the soups are only here for a limited time but what’s exciting is that there is a different one every day served with bread on the side made from scratch by Jodi Bakes! One day it can be loaded baked potato soup served with buttermilk bread or a chicken taco soup with cornbread. There’s other exiting soups like pinto beans with smoke turkey, pasta fagoili, ham and potato chowder and more! If you have $5 in your pocket and want to warm up quickly with something satisfying and balanced, all you have you to do is come into Compass to find out: What’s the soup of the day?  

Loaded baked Potato Soup topped with scrumptious scallions and bacon bits served with a slice of buttermilk bread made from scratch by Jodi Bakes.
Chicken taco soup garnished with cilantro, crispy tortillas chips and cheese! This tasty soup is loaded with good veggies like beans and corn and it is served with a slice of fresh baked cornbread made from scratch by Jodi Bakes.


Hazel just brought out fresh-baked buttermilk bread!

Don’t Bring Gifts To This Birthday Party!

This weekend, you are invited to one of the greatest birthday celebrations in New York! This Sunday is not going to be ordinary. Compass Coffee turns two years old and this birthday has been incredibly and carefully planned.

Compass is a Missions coffee shop that was created to help people in other countries get clean drinking water and rescue girls out of human trafficking through its partnership with The Zion project!


We will hear from the actual founder of the Zion Project: Pastor Deven Wallace. We will see her live and she will be preaching THIS Sunday at 10:30am at HopeNYC. Right after service, Compass will actually be giving you presents 🎁 as we celebrate this birthday! There will ALSO be special surprises for people who purchase a cup of coffee, dessert or item that day!

The fact that Pastor Deven will be at HopeNYC on Compass’ Birthday is not a coincidence or luck but this was indeed a divine appointment set up by God. In fact, Compass is a divine idea founded to help others and it will continue it’s mission even stronger as it steps into it’s second year! Read more about the MISSION here
