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

What You Need To Know About The Revival Before It Ends Tonight!

I know that you haven’t heard much from me lately…The Tent Revival was just that good!

The perfectly cool evening breeze comforts you after all the energy released during praise and worship. Houses around the neighborhood can hear all of the good and miraculous things done by Jesus! You really leave the service different than how you entered! Sadly tonight’s service is the last one! Here’s what you should know before it happens!

You will laugh and have a great time!

You will make known to me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forever. Psalm 16:11

We’ve all been having a great time under the tent each night full of laughs, fellowship and excitement! These evenings can really help you get through the next day with all the joy you need!

Experience it all with coffee!

Yes Compass has been opened! You can grab a beverage or a fresh baked Jodi Bakes dessert before and after service tonight! All proceeds go towards providing clean drinking water to other countries and rescuing victims of human trafficking so drink up! ☕️

We’ve been praying for miracles! e’ve prayed specifically for miracles, families, rededication and other things just as the Holy Spirit lead. A lot has happened in the Spirit this week! Bring someone who is struggling with something (Even with an incurable sickness )

Get here at 7pm

tent has a very beautiful interior but front and second row seats are limited and they fill fast! I’ve sat in both the front and back…THE FRONT IS BETTER!

There’s a book 📖

From hindu god-maker to Bishop today! One of the most extraordinary stories you will ever read! This book from our speaker will keep you interested and it will make a great gift that can uplift someone else! I’ve read it in under a week (I read slow) There’s a chance to get it tonight and not pay for shipping!

Believe Believe that God will speak to you tonight through the service and will meet your needs and revive your spirit! Even if you went all week or didn’t get to. If you can, come tonight at 7pm for the last service of this tent revival! I’m excited!

Cancer gone! Baby here!

Last Sunday I got to hold this miracle! Her mom was diagnosed with a rare form of head and neck cancer and had battled this for about two years! This even stopped her from consuming solid foods. Today she is recovering with word from the doctor that she’s healed! Last Sunday her beautiful daughter was dedicated to the Lord at HopeNYC Church where many prayed and fasted for her healing. She gives Jesus all the honor for saving her life and making it possible for the couple to have a baby.

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! 

 

Happy Birthday Compass

Compass Coffee had just celebrated it’s first birthday! The streets were lined with excited party guests ready for the celebration. I could tell it was going to be huge! All of the party guests received gifts for this birthday! Free coffee, birthday buttons, T-shirts and special elegant cookies made specifically for the occasion by House of Fray!

There were also things that added to excitement such as a live DJ, balloons, my raffle ticket # possibly being called, seeing what the new Jodi Bakes thanksgiving dessert tray looks like and being one of the first 50 people on line to get a discount card.

As we finally went in, each person received their discount card and free T-shirt then started ordering. I saw fresh desserts, shelves filled with candy, and a very happy welcoming staff that lined up to greet everyone at the door. Friends were sitting down enjoying conversations in and out of the cafe as the music played. A few of them were even dancing. The orders varied from coffee to croissants, to tea, to eclairs, to soup, to sandwiches and waffles. Everything everyone had looked absolutely appetizing!

We didn’t keep the fun all to ourselves. Those who walked or drove by got invited somehow by someone. The baristas served coffee and pumpkin bars to pedestrians waiting at the bus stop and firefighters at the station. It was an amazing and memorable birthday.

Watch this short video about this fun day!

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.
