I’m Bringing Dessert!

A tall tasty tower of treats from Compass Café with some Sweet insanity by Lisa!

I can’t wait to see the look on my family and friends‘ faces! Compass Coffee’s dessert towers has eclairs, triple threat brownies, pumpkin bars, pecan bread pudding, macaroons and lots more from Jodi Bakes! There’s also cake pops from Pint Sized Bites!

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!

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

Be sure to go make it to the parade! It’s coming up on December 3rd at 5pm. Come see spectacularly beautiful floats, Christmas characters, thousands of lights and Queens’ biggest Christmas tree lighting to end the night! There will also be hot chocolate, live music and the Hope express train 🚂 ! ALL FREE!

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!

 

There’s a new soup of the day every day! These are some of the best tasting soups you will ever find in NYC! Again made from scratch with great care so you can be nourished on the go! 

Compass Cafe is located on 142-82 Rockaway Blvd, Jamaica NY 11436

The Q7 and Q40 both stop right in front! Read more about the cafe’s MISSION HERE 

HopeNYC is preparing to make this the best Christmas ever…for children overseas.

Build an Ark was the theme of HopeNYC’s 2017 Toy Drive! Hopers picked up a hammer and worked together to raise the funds to provide tons of toys (possibly an Ark-full)

I noticed the genuine cheerfulness in giving until the drive was over. Putting a smile on a child’s face has always been an important mission at HopeNYC. A child may be receiving their first toy this year. The toys will be off to the Caribbean this Christmas: Trinidad, Guyana, Jamaica, and Belize! High quality popular brand new toys. As someone would say “Toys you would buy for your own children.”

What makes this year even more exciting is that some of the Hopers will be going to the

countries to distribute these toys in person.

Special gifts were given to every participant of the Toy Drive so they won’t forget the time they got to Build An Ark.

HopeNYC has big plans for Christmas even in New York! Read my previous blog about the Christmas parade. Look out for info this upcoming month on www.HopeNYC.com or on the Facebook Page: http://www.Facebook.com/HopeNYC

I didn’t open my 🎁

Sips of Hope celebrates a special birthday! Two years of making a way of freedom for precious girls enslaved by human trafficking! Two years of providing clean drinking water to quench the thirst in several countries! Two years of serving good quality coffee and pastries to New Yorkers and providing a tranquil area in a busy city.

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!

Two beautiful powerful anointed ladies! Selflessly bringing help and revival around the globe!

Packed shop and long lines today!

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!

GUESS WHAT?

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

These 2 people made NYC better! Get to know them!

A quick video to show appreciation to my Pastors; the Senior Pastors of HopeNYC Church! Of course we know that pastors take care of others, lead, preach sermons, pray and do many other fantastic things for the kingdom. The collection of photos in this video highlights more of the spontaneous things they do in addition to the serious. Did you know that HopeNYC had a 60 ft long banana split sundae that ended up in a delicious ice cream fight? Did you know that HopeNYC does a Fall festival and Christmas Parade every year? HopeNYC also sends toys to several caribbean countries each year and helps distributes food to feed New Yorkers every week!

These pastors are amazing gifts from God. They have affected the lives of many people in the HopeNYC congregation and they have made New York a better place! You have to come see them yourselves one day!

Sunday Service – 10:30am

Wednesday Night Prayer and Deliverance Service-  7pm
