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!

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

A weekend of In10City

This VBS Has Never Been Done Before!

Listen and obey the voice of God! We have heard it before but I never expected to get the message talking with Noah about his daily life struggles or riding in through the safari in a giant jeep or hearing it all in one Hebrew word! SHEMA is an original divine God-given idea for VBS 2017. The excited staff dressed up in costume to be bible characters, safari explorers and animals for the children! It was indeed a bible safari of a lifetime! The songs surrounding the theme were original and created by Hopers! I was so happy there was a CD so I can enjoy the songs when it was all over. The kids learned a mighty amount of things this weekend! They also had tons of fun with crafts, games and the bounce house! Not only did they learn about the word of God but their faith was put into action! The kids wrote encouraging letters to other children in Zimbabwe while putting together care packages. The kids also took their relationship with Jesus to the next level and got baptized (In the Jordan river after a skit with Jesus and John the Baptist!) SHEMA was life-changing and amazing! I can definitely say that VBS has never been done like this before! Watch the video for a glimpse of what happened. Photos are below!

Blast Off

Recap: VBS stands for Vacation Bible Study, It’s just for Kids ages 4-10 &  HopeNYC does it every year! Each VBS has a different theme!

BLAST OFF was VBS 2014 at HopeNYC Church! This incredible fun-filled weekend just ended & all the lucky little ones left with hope in their hearts, lots of wisdom, joy & back packs full of school supplies! Yes FREE BOOK BAGS! The children really enjoyed this year’s space themed VBS! The realistic NASA ship, The Blast Off T-shirts, Special space guest: Astronaut Reggie, The space monkeys, The create your own rocket station, Asteroid toss game,  & tons more! The kids also got pizza, snow cones, face paint, prizes & a chance to go wild in the bounce house!  Most importantly they learned about Almighty God & what Jesus has done for them through interesting stories & demonstrations (including a 4D movie) . They had fun learning songs & dance of praise…Yes in 3 Days! The children also got the chance to do a mission. They brought blank sketchers sneakers to life by adding gems & stickers. They decorated these shoes so nicely then filmed a short video… All for children in Panama with no shoes. It warmed my heart to see each kid raise their hand saying they wanted to go there one day. The Hope team will be flying there in September to distribute the wonderful shoes these kids made! VBS this year was out of this world! The most important lesson learned this weekend was to love eachother. The Hope kids showed love to kids in Panama they may never meet! They loved the new friends they have made in VBS, &  we have even gotten cute reports that they “kissed their mommies at home”  I was honored to be a crew leader & really enjoyed spending time with these kids. Scroll down & check out these cute pics of what happened at HopeNYC this weekend! 🙂

WildFire

WildFire Teen Ministry is setting the city on fire!  The teens of HopeNYC had an awesome service yesterday kicking off their new mid-summer series: SUMMER SPLASH! Everything & everyone was outdoors!  The message touched lives, The DJ was awesome & The praise & worship music rocked the streets of Queens as all instruments & voices came through the speakers. I didn’t forget about the games…They were crazy! These teenagers were tied into a human knot with only a few seconds to free themselves! For the other game, teens had to spin around a pole about 10 times & crawl to the finish line.  There were some water games & a special game called Eye of the Tiger.  After service, the teens kicked back & did their own thing. The snackshop served hotdogs, nachos & fries with cheese to everyone. Some wanted to shoot hoops, some preferred talking with friends, some rode  bicycles up, some played dodge ball, some played the drums. There is always something exciting happening with the WildFire teens at HopeNYC. The teens now await their upcoming trip to Coco Keys Water resort. .

WildFire is every Friday at 7:30pm. For ages 13-19.  At HopeNYC Church.

Thanks for the Miracle

When God does a Miracle,  say “Thank You”                                    HopeNYC gave thanks with 2 families today in Lefferts blvd Queens!  The weather was beautiful &  The praises of Hope’s people filled the backyard. It was all for Jesus.  Songs of praise, a Beautiful dance,  a Special  word & multiple Miraculous Testimonies.  As a praying church, we rejoice today!  We have  been  with the families the during times of distress &  the massive medical problems. The doctors had even predicted death upon the oldest daughters in both families. Today everyone stands strong in perfect health with bright futures ahead of them. Blessed abundantly. The deliverance that seemed impossible was done easily by Jesus! Today, HopeNYC says Thank You!
