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!

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.

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

What You Need To Know About The Revival Before It Ends Tonight!

I know that you haven’t heard much from me lately…The Tent Revival was just that good!

You really leave the service different than how you entered! Sadly tonight’s service is the last one! Here’s what you should know before it happens!

You will laugh and have a great time!

You will make known to me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forever. Psalm 16:11

Experience it all with coffee!

Wow Moms

Mother’s Day came back around & HopeNYC was ready.

Our mission: To make sure no mother beneath the HopeNYC roof leave the premises unchanged, under-appeciated and empty-handed. There is only one person who’s up for the challenge and that’s Jesus!

At Hope we say something very special:

We are the hands & feet but God is the face. In fact, that is a very famous hashtag we hopers use so often; #GodIsTheFace

Every mom that walked through the door recieved a jumbo chocolate heart on a stick and beautiful button that says I’m a Hope Mom. They were also treated to a big breakfast.  The children’s ministry had a beautiful dance prepared.

The teenagers performed a skit where one brave christian girl in school stands up to her peers & proudly states that her mother is her best friend. She leads by example & encourages her friends to celebrate mother’s day with their mothers. Not the boyfriend, not the gang of kids at the pizza shop, not with the Xbox and not at the nail salon. They go to church and  their moms feel loved because of the atmosphere Jesus created for them. The breakfast, the spoken word the “pretend church service”… This girl brought the families together.

The girl who is the example. That's me in the yellow  :)

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.

Growth Groups (Now Hope Groups)

There’s a famous saying we use often at HopeNYC!

“The day you stop learning is the day you stop growing.” 

As I mentioned in my recent post The Body,  Growth Groups has started! There are many cool growth groups here ranging from from Chinese cooking to bowling,  cosmetology, hairstyling,  leadership, baking, music, bible groups & much much more! 

Many of these groups were held today in different parts of the church building. I was excited to enter church on a bright Saturday morning. I loved the mood of the place. People interacting, drinking coffee, laying out their pens with lovely stationary items ready for note taking. I walked into my growth group today & saw a table of goodies. Hot chocolate, bagels, a variety of donuts, blueberry muffins, yummy pastries, and different cream cheese spreads. I was in a bible class and it was so much fun. There were pictures, prizes, amazing history, laughs, and very interesting discussions. The food could not satisfy my hunger for more wisdom from this teaching. I am already excited for next Saturday’s class. As it ended, I left my seat and wandered around. Through a big clear window on the same floor, I glanced over at the cosmetology class. I saw two girls each wearing a fresh moist green mask over their faces. It looked like so much fun & the girls got a free facial. I walked past another room and heard all the voices behind the door singing as a choir while a guitar strummed the chords of their song. (It was not a music class, it was actually a group called True Worship)  On the way out, I saw my friend on his laptop finalizing material to teach his class. Next to him sat a large bag filled with stacked boxes of Popeye’s fried chicken for the group’s lunch (They’re so lucky) I caught a bus then rode the train home. For the next two hours of traveling (Yes I travel that far) I kept my head buried into a novel I had gotten from my group. Not only I had received an excitement to learn but an excitement to grow.
