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

WildFire’s Winter

LOUD CRAZY DEEP FIRE,

It left us….

MIND-BLOWN

These are just some words that best describe the experience & revival we’ve just encountered at Northeast Winterfest 2015. The teens of HopeNYC; WildFire Teen Ministry  had just returned from an incredible fun-filled trip. We drove up to Rochester New York for the weekend to an amazing getaway that allowed us to escape our daily lives &  steal away with our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ!  At Winterfest there were great sessions filled with live music from awesome gospel artist, talented dance groups, powerful messages from anointed speakers &  liberating prayer at the altars. Teens had the freedom to surround the stage so they can dance  & GO WILD like one song says. This powerful weekend was centered on Jesus! When WildFire gets together, we are in good company! In our van rides, we talk, dance, rap, sing, race on Mario Kart & share a snack buffet. In the hotel we hit the gym, eat pizza, watch movies, play video games, play pranks, go crazy….. yet other guest were not disturbed! It may all sound like fun & for others not so much. I can surely say that Christ was our joy. We pursued Him all weekend & He indeed changed our lives….. Why do teens need Jesus?

Jesus can cause a teenager to defeat depression rather than to allow it to change their image, hate themselves, hate their parents & take their life. Jesus can cause a teenager to walk away & move forward from discouraging friends who constantly remind them how bad their life is. Jesus can change grades. Jesus can give teens the power to reject things that are hard to turn down like the 1st cigarette or 1st sip of alcohol or the kind invitation from the Bf/Gf that constantly says they’re not rushing things & yet wants to somehow sneak into a sexual relationship. For the teenagers (& the world) Jesus gave up His life & allowed others to break Him in every way so that we can have a great life with Him on Earth & live an everlasting one with Him in Heaven. The teens need Jesus! Although Winterfest has ended, WildFire Teen Ministry continues to pursue Jesus & spread His goodness around New York like a WildFire.

Brooklyn Breakthrough

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!

Hey You! Read This! Hey You! Read This! Hey You! Read This! Hey You! Read This! Hey You! Read This!

Lets bring a bigger breakthrough to this world! I encourage you to volunteer at your local church or organization just to help others!

Especially

  •  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.)

Vision

  • 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! 🙂

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.
