Have your biggest Thanksgiving celebration this year!

Looking to have a more grand Thanksgiving this year? Here are some keys to maximize your holiday experience! First off you would need to eat more, extend your family and of course, be thankful! This can get done in just one week! Here’s how!

Make room for the Thanksgiving Tower!

This is 10 times more than your typical Thanksgiving dessert! With this tower, you will get to enjoy your favorite classic: pumpkin pie….along an unbelievable variety the best desserts ever created! Check out this video! You will get brownies, cheesecake, cake pops, bread pudding, macaroons and much more! Plus this is shareable for friends, families, co-workers and groups! It’s going to be hard to make room for dessert this year! Proceeds from this Compass Café Purchase will go to providing clean water and rescuing victims of human trafficking!

BIG SUNDAY!

Come spent time with the Hope family! They will love you and make you feel welcome as soon as you step inside! Church is the perfect place to be thankful and express that gratitude to God. The one who gave us everything we have. After service, come enjoy HopeNYC’s Thanksgiving feast! There will be plenty of food and friends which makes it a great pre-celebration to the big day!

SHARE YOUR EXPERIENCE!

Text a friend or get a fancy card from dollar tree wishing them a Happy Thanksgiving! Maybe a new friend you met on Big Sunday. It’s also fun to share your experience by taking photos of your thanksgiving tower and your day!

After this is all over, be on the lookout for HopeNYC’s Christmas Parade on Rockaway Blvd! This will be on Sunday December 3rd at 5pm! A great way to kick off your Christmas celebration!

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

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

Best gathering for Young Adults

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! 

 

HopeNYC Super Bowl Party

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!

 

 

 

Save the Subway!

Even on a bright sunny Saturday morning in New York City, there are still places to go & plenty to do! The travelers commuting that morning didn’t realize that Jesus would stop them right in their train tracks from just having another ordinary subway ride. Just as if Jesus would let them continue their weekly routine without making Himself known someway…. He will!

On Saturday morning, that way was through a group of evangelist consisting of different ages & special gifts. They rode the tracks with boldness as they queued the entry music for Jesus. He is the Savior of the whole world & indeed a soon-coming King! These people prepared the way by testifying about the deep hard things in their lives that was triumphed by Jesus! Testimonies ranged from depression, alcohol addiction & dying in the ICU. These situations were so impossible to get out of but they stand here today to tell the story. People were amazed at the joy they were filled with. The group went from train to train spreading hope through dancing, sharing their stories, singing, playing the guitar & speaking the good news that Jesus died for them!  When Jesus saves the subway,  it’s no ordinary ride!

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 

Hope hits Harlem

Today, HopeNYC helped hundreds in Harlem by distributing boxes upon boxes of Thanksgiving foods, household items, & Avon Products. The major organizations that provided these items were Feed The ChildrenAvon. The boxes came in trucks. HopeNYC Church teamed with Harlem Fellowship Church & made a great difference to families the community. The people were blessed as they happily rolled their carts knowing it was Jesus. HopeNYC did not only give away the groceries but they helped carry it to the cars. The occasion was so immense that NY1 & other News reporters stopped by to interview. Another major help was NBA Knicks player Carmelo Anthony, who made his appearance & gave to families. This event took place in The Manhattan Center of Science & Mathematics High School. (I went to school here btw)

Harlem was indeed blessed & they all anticipate an Awesome Thanksgiving!
