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.
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!
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!

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

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!
The Jubilee ministry is for ages 50 and over! There is an exciting meeting this Saturday with an international theme! Relax, play some games, sing karaoke, mingle, learn a craft and eat great food because it’s going to be a potlock; people will bring dishes from their countries! It’s happening at 4pm this Saturday at HopeNYC Church! www.HopeNYC.com
Just like I mentioned in my previous vlogs! I will let you know of any awesome events opened to the community!
Imagine having group of people you can connect, be real and go places with. This pretty much sums of the Lift Off Young Adult Ministry at HopeNYC Church! It’s an exclusive ministry for 20 somethings both single and married! This fun ministry meets once a month and it just celebrated its 2017 launch yesterday at Compass Café. At Lift Off, there’s fellowship, great food, new friends, hot topics, and outings! 20 somethings enjoy coffee in the winter then mocktails in the summer. It’s a great place for young adults to mingle and get connected. Yesterday we enjoyed sliders, wings, s’mores dip and coffee! We got to know each other through games, plan our next meeting and talk about good real things! There’s a ministry for every age group at HopeNYC!

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.
WildFire has launched for 2015! These are the teens of HopeNYC & they have an action packed awesome time every Friday at 7pm! They serve Jesus & set the city ablaze with a passion for His name! Teens are affected here at Wildfire every week. They walk into a fun & lively atmosphere where everyone fellowships, play bizarre games, have nachos & hear a life changing message. Teens leave feeling free, happy, encouraged, & on fired for Jesus! This past Wildfire, Gospel artist Sir Hall came & ministered. His music was incredibly empowering, encouraging & just Amazing! The teens & adults in the room danced wildly & worshiped the Lord. For the rest of the night there were also group dances, Bible trivia with buzzers, crazy games, live Dj, Birthday cakes………Bottom line, it was a big night & successful launch! If you know some teens in NYC….WildFire is definitely the Best spot for ages 13-19.
WildFire starts a new series tomorrow called Roller Coaster!
I just got back home from WildFire Teen Ministry at HopeNYC Church. WildFire is the church’s youth service & it happens every Friday night at 7:30pm. Every service at WildFire is usual! Today the teenagers attempted to thaw out a frozen T-shirt for a prize…Yes a frozen T-shirt. It sounds bizarre but it sure made an cleverly amusing game! There was also a 21st century scavenger hunt where teens were required to use their smart phones to take selfies & photos of certain items. Teens also had a blast playing jeopardy style bible trivia with actual game buzzers. Later on, things got messy with a game involving a large bowls of colorful candies & Oreo cookie crumbs! The entire game night ended with a sweaty game of dodge ball & a room full of board games for the less sporty ones. The group took pleasure in meeting a new guest who decided to spend their birthday with WildFire. Even though the night was pure fun, I knew that it meant something & truly made a difference. WildFire is a place for teens to feel at home & be accepted for who they are. Every person needs that. If no one in the world gets you, Jesus will.
