The Soothing Sound of Saxophone Worship 🎷

Listen as Andre plays To God be The Glory on the saxophone. He played it during today’s service at HopeNYC. Let this song of worship uplift you as it brings the presence of God with His peace through your phone/computer speakers.

Have a listen, relax and enjoy 😊

They kick it up a notch after a minute! Keep on listening 👂

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

Mom’s Crowning Moment

I love watching this video! Kids from HopeNYC describe their moms and wish them an early Happy Mother’s Day! Most of these parents attended yesterday’s dance where this video was first viewed. Hopers! Find your child or yourself or just hear all of them!

The dance was such a beautiful experience! Proceeds went towards HopeNYC’s International Missions Ministry who partnered with the ZionProject to help rescue sex trafficking victims. Some girls get trapped into it while some are sold by their own parents in an effort to provide for the other siblings in the family. Mothers were honored and treated like royalty last night at HopeNYC while giving towards the cause. Wildfire; the teen ministry of the church made the night into an elegant experience executing beautiful hospitality. Gentlemen escorted the mothers upstairs to their table. The girls attended to the needs of the guest and served the three course meal with the gentlemen joining in. There were gifts for every lady in the room; mom or not. There were special awards for our beautiful pastor, the lady crowned for mother of the year and gentleman of the night. There was also a crowning for best dressed. Entertainment was smooth! Reggae was performed live by Art Crawford and Eddie Neblett with DJ Mark Xclusive. The night could not have ended until the well-known reggae song: She’s Royal was played. It was all a wonderful night filled with entertainment, raffles, decorations, great food, exquisite gowns, dancing, relaxation, appreciation,  love, photos…. check out the pictures! Also stay tuned on the HopeNYC website and Facebook for their upcoming Mother’s day service!

 Guat’s up? XELA That’s what! (Pronounces shay-la)

One cup quenches the thirst of a child miles away. One cup rescues a victim, held in the horrific hands of human trafficking. One cup can kick-start your day with a smile in each sip!
That’s what the XELA did to me. It’s an aromatic Guatemalan slow roast that’s like PEACE in a cup! It relaxes you yet energizes you in the most smoothing and subtle way! Because it does all of this, the XELA is actually my favorite coffee at Compass. Feel free to leave a comment below and share what’s your favorite coffee?
