Coffee, Cookie, Challenge!

My recent Instagram Post: Reading the book of Ephesians 💻#Read #Bible #Ephesians #Cookie #Coffee #Outside #Summer #Compass 

Last night many accepted the challenge! I am sitting right outside of Compass Cafe starting it off reading on the mac with some coffee & munching on a Jodi Bake cookie! For the next two Hope Day services: We will be digging deep into the book of Ephesians. I am so excited. Excited to fall in love more with Christ and find fresh new things in these love letters written by Paul 🖊 Now the challenge: Read the entire book of Ephesians every day for three weeks with a pencil!  Why? God is about to speak! 

Need to fall back in love with Christ? ❤️ Are you a new believer or know a new believer? The book of Ephesians is a great place to open the Bible & get started! This new series is a great time to make your first visit at HopeNYC Church! Summer at Hope is starting & it’s usually so suntastically awesome. So much that I think we end up having much more fun than vacation goers ✈️ 

Sunday services: 10:30 AM

Hope day Wednesday services: 7 PM

Tomorrow right outside in front of our building: HOMESTRETCH! See dozens of beautiful amazing testimonies get encouraged like never before! 

Fun Day Fiesta

Fun day is not just a term that described our delicious Monday night adventure at Elena’s 43 , It was a significant required set aside day specially planned to celebrate an accomplishing graduating group. Who graduated? From where?
At HopeNYC, there are many groups you can join to learn skills and fellowship. These are called Hope Groups and there is one for everyone!
My husband and I were honored to teach this semester. He taught a Spanish group while I taught beginner bloggers. On Monday, the Spanish Hope Group had their fun day at a Spanish restaurant while the bloggers group joined in and captured the experience. Although our classes were not in a classroom, we exercised the skills at the restaurant. The Spanish group spoke to the waiters in Spanish and truly aimed to hold the conversation with one another. They did great! As we sat down and ate, we had great conversations and I got to know everyone else much more. I’m excited to meet with them on Sunday for church next time. We had salads served with the restaurant’s delicious dressing! Some of us enjoyed chicken while some ordered the salmon while some got the steak, or the shrimp, even the lobster! We also sipped fresh fruit smoothies, and sodas! We had a fiesta of a time with laughs and good conversation.
