This is the opinion of my iced latte this morning at Compass!
All the flavors your tastebuds should experience with coffee! Strong nutty taste from the espresso which is creamed with cool almond milk stirred with the right teaspoons of sugar. I craved strong and sweet and got it! What do you crave? There’s choices in sweetners, syrups & milk to make your ideal cup of hope! Just ask 😀
This Saturday morning as I work here on the laptop, I see tweens sitting together with frappes, soda, and Sunshine snacks. I’ve seen people today enjoy the Compass sandwiches talking how great the pesto spread tastes. A little boy who actually likes chai tea lattes and a friend of mine that dunked an oatmeal cream cookie in a milkshake. How interesting! Should try it one day! This is a pleasant place to be in the rain right now. Stay dry everyone!
TOMORROW AT 10:30pm! Awesome place to bring your dad! Empowering encouraging Word, gifts and more! It’s always such a special service! He will be blessed!
HOPE DAY SERVICE THIS WEDNESDAY AT 7PM!
NEXT SUNDAY AFTER SERVICE! 🌎 Try foods from around the world!
HopeNYC church has a heart for helping. There is no language or location barrier, I’ve seen Hopers visit other boroughs & fly across the world! A couple of weeks ago, HopeNYC helped Harlem for Thanksgiving but did not stop there! HopeNYC visited a homeless shelter in Brooklyn last week to not just prepare a Thanksgiving meal but a Thanksgiving Feast! Hope served dozens of turkeys, chicken, endless slices of baked ham, full trays of mashed potatoes, yummy mac & cheese, various desserts & so much more! Hope did not only provide a freshly prepared lunch but they also gave out groceries for Thanksgiving day! Hearts were touched, Kids enjoyed picking out their favorite pies & families were blessed. I saw burdens being lifted as the church made life easier for these hard working parents. The staff who cooked & served this feast were not only adults. Children, teenagers, 20 somethings, also worked hard to prepare a dish & show up to serve! HopeNYC is really one of the few places in New York where you would see a young one so interested & selflessly working hard to help someone else.The church as whole desire to follow Jesus & be His hands & feet. That is our heart!
So many people were blessed with food, groceries, & winter coats!
Lets bring a bigger breakthrough to this world! I encourage you to volunteer at your local church or organization just to help others!
On Major Holidays
If you are in charge of a group, club or ministry! Anyone can do this!
Not in charge?
That is Ok! If you have the heart you can start!
Formulate a plan with your friends! Where to go, who to call, what to give away or do. There are elderly homes, homeless shelters, hospitals… see what’s in your city.
If you are currently in school or college you can find out if they are already hosting a mission. If not then you can start it! I’ve seen people start a simple harry potter club…. Be the one to make a real difference! Start a club or a day event to help others!
Be brave ( I’m shy to approach people but this is a small price to pay to change someone’s world.)
With your own eye, who do you see suffer?
What would make that person feel better?
Would it be a bag of groceries? toys? a holiday feast? prayer? a coat? a free manicure? Christmas carols?….
Without a vision, You would not know where to go & where to steer your group. Think about who can you help?
Make a decision to help your world! Being involved & changing someone’s life is so fantastic but the true reason for serving others will always be that it is God’s purpose for us.
Take a good look at your hands, they are made to work! 🙂
