VBS

(Vacation Bible School)

Happens at Hope every year around August!

It’s an exciting FREE 2 days for kids filled with fun, learning, games, music, prizes, and an amazing experience! Last year’s theme was a safari. What will our building transform into next? Details and dates to come!

Beach Baptism

There are several baptisms through the year at HopeNYC but always one at the beach. It’s such a special and memorable way to get baptized Hopers get to enjoy a beach day afterwards along with a possible volleyball tournament. Details and date to come!

Now here are some summer tips!

Sunscreen: Applying your sunscreen indoors is important! This stuff is SLOWLY absorbed by your skin. Allow up 15 minutes before stepping outside to ensure protection! It’s definitely important to have on when the sun is at its peak between the hours of 11am-2pm

Freebies & discounts:

  1. Brooklyn Botanical Garden is free on Friday mornings!
  2. Long Beach is free after 6pm to relax, walk around, wet your toes, photograph, and play beach games! Read about the last time I went!
  3. The met museum in Manhattan takes a donation of your choice 25 cents and up from students!
  4. The Aquarium has discounted tickets right now because it’s other exhibits are under construction! The ticket includes a cool 4D movie!
  5. Bryant Park has fun free juggling lessons all week long! Follow @Bpjugglers

Photographers: Look into a polarizing filter! It will make your landscape photograph clearer and help everything in your image to be the proper color. Rivers, oceans and sky can loose it’s beautiful blue tone from yellow sun rays but a filter will bring out those blues much more!

These are the tips! I hope you enjoy and hope to see you the Freedom concert

Worship On The Beach

It all started with a volleyball circle on the sand. There was a setting sun, a ceaseless cool breeze, crashing waves, and a blue sky that swirled with purple, pink & vivid yellow streaks. It was a beautiful clear sunny day in New York but indeed a great evening for outdoor worship.

As golden hour approached, the 20 somethings including myself took a seat and prepared for some special set-aside time with The Lord. We spent minutes talking about Him and where He brought us out from but there was an important question to be answered!

If given the chance, what are some things you would tell your younger self ?

It’s a great question and an important one to ask yourself! Are any answers coming to mind?

On our beach blankets and chairs, Brian strummed the guitar and everyone started singing. Ice cream afterwards topped off this wonderful summer evening!

Do you feel a Connection?

HopeNYC Church has been home to hundreds of New Yorkers! There’s been countless reports of miracles and lives changed from attending weekly. Friendships are formed and many feel a real connection. Not only in the relationships…

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!

 

EXCITING NEWS!
