August Rhythms

One of the most difficult and yet beautiful steps in our maturity as disciples of Christ is the embracing of our disabilities. The scriptures are incredibly clear that it’s in our weakness that His strength is displayed and yet we continue to act as if this journey is about our strength instead of His. He calls us to embrace our weakness...

No matter where they were, everyone seemed to walk away with huge takeaways and more money in their bank account. And yet, when I heard these stories, I didn’t think FPU was for me. I had no debt, wasn’t married and already considered myself pretty financially savvy.

The Daylilies on Willow Avenue

Last fall, during Hoboken Grace’s 1Day event, two teams cleared out a pair of abandoned plots of land, weeding, picking up garbage and digging out stumps. Nearly a year later, the plots on Willow Avenue and Park Street are still being cared for by Hoboken Grace. For James, the church’s Director of Community Impact and Outreach, tending to these small […]

Why I Took FPU Four Times (When I Wasn’t Even in Debt!)

When I first heard about FPU, I was immediately intrigued – a Biblical way to manage my money? Sign me up. I wasn’t in debt and I’d always considered myself responsible with money, I just never really had a plan. My budget was whatever felt convenient at the time and I was haphazardly saving for this elusive thing called retirement […]

Five Common Questions About Joining a Team

Last Sunday, Anthony talked about how the early church grew when everyone took part in the mission together. Just like the early church, we’re called to the same mission of helping people find their way back to God. But in order to fulfill that mission, everyone is called to engage in it. At Hoboken Grace, several dozen teams do their own […]

The Still, Small Voice

Has something ever happened in your life that was so good that it left you completely awestruck – just utterly mind-blown? Like there was something you’d been wanting and hoping for and dreaming about but never imagined it would really happen until it actually came true? That’s what it’s been like for me since I found my way back to […]

Be Bold

“You’re a Christian?” I remember being asked that one day at dinner with someone I hadn’t seen in a long time. We were friends in college and had reconnected over a dinner in the city years later. They were surprised because in college, I wasn’t a Christian. In fact, during undergrad, I probably had never been farther from God in […]
