What Do You Want To Learn?

Ever wanted to learn something? Hope Groups has made it happen for hundreds of people! From building a computer, learning Spanish, operating a DSLR camera, playing an instrument, acing a job interview, living a healthy life, growing in your spiritual life, learning to double dutch, photoshop, and so much more than you can imagine! I posted my article Growth Groups three years ago explaining the different classes offered by facilitators from HopeNYC! After three years, things has immensely improved! The name is changed to Hope Groups! Registration is also super simple and swift because it’s online! There are also new facilitators and classes every semester!

I have taken a healthier approach this semester and decided to join two health and wellness hope groups! From the short time I’ve been there, its been totally eye-opening, exciting, interesting and informative! One is taught by an actual physician and the other is taught by a phenomenal woman who has conquered the most challenging weight-loss obstacles many women face today! All the facilitators are highly skilled and passionate about what they teach! At the end of every semester, The Hope Groups ministry has always asked this question: What classes do you want to see next semester? My readers, What do you want to learn?

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.

Yesterday 

God’s Time Clock!

The past Sunday at HopeNYC was BIG SUNDAY! It was indeed an awesome service full of praise & worship to God in many forms. There were special songs, bright & beautifully dressed dancers, awesome music by the musicians, singers singing their hearts out to God & a 7 year old girl  who recited an entire psalm. On Big Sunday, each 1st time guest received an Awesome red T-shirt that says “Hope for God.” Another thing that made this Sunday big was the kick off to a brand new series titled God’s Time Clock, taught by Dr. Randy Caldwell, The Ambassador for Christians United for Israel! The series has been mind-blowingly incredible! We are all learning all sorts of stuff; The meaning of numbers (All numbers have a meaning), Hebrew letters ( Each Hebrew letter can also be a picture or a word), The significance of Abraham’s name change, animals in astrology, & so much more! If there is something you don’t understand it gets cleared up here! This series is still going & tonight & tomorrow at 7pm.

If this interests you, It will be streamed live tonight around 7:30. (if it doesn’t work, try later)

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.
