The party isn’t over! The celebration of freedom still continues with patriotic colors and a cake to cut. The Freedom Cake is back at Compass! Fans had happily reunited with the cake this weekend. Just like last year, it’s going fast! Many are in love with the cake because of it’s eye-catching trio of colors on the surface and in the slices. WE are also fond of the delicious fresh homemade vanilla taste. You may find yourself back at the job today but you can continue celebrating with a satisfying slice! It tastes like a celebration any day after July 4th🎉
TONS of food, good music, dogs, dancing, games and the most awesome view of fireworks from the neighborhood at night. I can definitely say my fourth of July was well spent! As I walked in helping Jay deliver a large tray of chicken empanadas, we saw tables lined up with endless entrees! Pork chops, BBQ Chicken, homemade bread, pelau, turkey burgers, grilled fish, chicharon, macaroni pie, and much more! I saw people playing twister, table tennis, ludo, poker and volleyball. I sat with a group for a monopoly game. It didn’t go so well for me…I went to jail three times and had to pay somebody’s rent for almost every turn. I did come into plenty of money but it was hard to purchase properties that wasn’t already taken during my arrest. Overall I had fun loosing with good (competitive) friends. Speaking of that, two adorable friends joined us for the picnic.
Later on, we danced the night away in the church parking lot celebrating freedom!
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!

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.
Down-south? Hands-down the tastiest by Jodi Bakes
Macchiato! My favorite Italian word and very first beverage at Compass! There’s also the rich great tasting houseblend you can never go wrong with!
There is much more from many places! Where will you go today? If you enjoyed the video please LIKE and SUBSCRIBE to my YouTube Channel! Will Appreciate it!
HopeNYC had its annual Super Bowl party! We viewed the game on a super-sized screen fit for a football fan.
Not into the game? Just the wings, fellowship, cozy couches and great music by DJ Mark Xclusive made it SUPER! At half time things got spicy! There was a hot wing eating contest! These wings were drenched in ghost peppers, chili peppers, Habanero and much more heat! The snack shop had a tall menu of game day specials: wings, burgers, fries, hotdogs, nachos, chicken tenders, chips, candy and soda! I crave the wings around this time of year and got my fix with Asian and habanero and buffalo!
Spicy! Sweet! Savory! Satisfying!
These were prepared here at HopeNYC and I can say these are the best wings I’ve ever had. Everyone had a good time here. Football fans, wing lovers, children, commercial watchers….Overall everyone had the ultimate game day experience!
Who did I root for? Originally I cheered on the Falcons from the start but although they didn’t win, I went home with a valuable important lesson.
No matter how bad things may look from the start even if it takes as long as halftime, things can change and you can win!
Spiritually: No matter how bad things look and how short you come, God can change everything in an instant for you. Keep going!
I just tried Compass Cafe’s NEWEST pumpkin swirl waffle! You can enjoy this for breakfast or anytime of the day! It’s loaded with pumpkin flavor and feels just like fall! It’s not sweet at all but you can achieve your desired sweetness by adding the amount of syrup or whipped cream that pleases you.
This will be nice in the morning with a pumpkin spice latte on the side.
Because of the calm atmosphere, pumpkin spice scent and appearance of the Compass cafe’ you will feel that restful rustic autumn atmosphere. You can have family time here where you can sit down share a meal and some sweets with loved ones. You can have meetings, tutor a child, complete homework of any kind, plug in your laptop …the list goes on!
Was there ever a time in your life where you just needed help?
In 2014, a brilliant ministry was birthed just to help! Help with what? Your needs if you just let them know!
The ministry just had their Christmas party last night and it was such a fun time in fellowship. They served food, raffled prizes, shared it’s 2015 acccomplishments, had an awesome dancer, special word of encouragement and much more! This end of the year party made me more aware of it’s splendid accomplishments in helping others! The Helps ministry is tremendous! They have been known to help provide food to families (especially widows) in New York! During the 2015 Christmas season, families were blessed with a box of help filled with food and cleaning supplies of every description! Plus the boxes were delivered to the familes! The Helps ministry has made life quite easier for Hope members. They have given out fruits, vegetables and bread randomly after many services this year. They have helped provided a way home for people when they did not have a metrocard or cab fare. The ministry has also provided and treated many ladies this year with a gift certificate to have their hair done by one of the best hairstylist in Queens. This ministry has been a great blessing to many and it’s only getting started! It is the best feeling in the world to get help when you need it.
