Nate and Alyssa were unsure what they’d take away from Financial Peace University — if anything. A civil engineer by trade, Nate is a numbers guy who for years meticulously updated a financial spreadsheet. Alyssa, meanwhile, had studied financial planning and previously worked in wealth management. The couple also doubted they could do more to reduce the substantial debt of […]

For the past seven years, hundreds of people have come together in the name of community and love for a citywide day of service.

Finding Financial Freedom

After Dan and Rebecca made a plan to pay off $110,000 in debt, God placed it on their hearts to open their home to Chloe, a student they’d met on a mission trip to North Korea. Providing a bed, meals and everything else she’d need over 10 months was definitely not in the budget. “I was really freaking out,” said Rebecca. “And this is where Dan was like, we need to give God a chance to show up.”

A Summer to Celebrate

At Hoboken Grace, we kicked off the summer with a series to do just that. "Celebrating Summer" asked what it would look like if this summer could be your best summer yet. With Labor Day marking summer's (unofficial) end earlier this week, we thought it was time we looked back at the summer we had at Hoboken Grace and reflect on all that there is to celebrate.

When “Good Enough” Wasn’t Good Enough

With a Bachelor’s degree in Finance, the last thing I thought I needed was to take another finance course. I had spent more than enough time in college sitting in class calculating bonds and compounding interest that I felt excused from ever having to take a personal finance class. I couldn’t have been more wrong...

The Art of Hustle

A couple months ago I was in a season of pure, unrelenting hustle. We were a few weeks out from Easter and we were in the middle of a massive undertaking – a brand-new set for the stage. After a few set-backs (pun intended), we were finally moving along, working to reach our goal of unveiling it by the Good […]

She Said Yes!

Last Sunday, before services began, the dozens of people serving that morning gathered for a 9 a.m. Team Huddle. The gathering started out as it usually does, with teams sharing celebrations from the past week. And then Anthony called Stephanie to the stage, announcing he was going to do something "a little bit different." That set in motion a proposal from Stephanie's boyfriend, Jeff, who shares why it was so fitting that they got engaged at Hoboken Grace.

Prayer ― Your Direct Line to God

I remember when I was working full time in the performing arts, I got the name and cell phone number of a pretty famous person. I thought it was awesome just to have it in my phone. We were working on a project together, we became friends and, as friends do, we exchanged numbers. After the project finished, we stayed […]

A Commitment Worth Declaring

For most of my life, I’ve been afraid of commitment -- afraid of falling short and disappointing other people. After walking into Hoboken Grace for the first time in 2012, that included my relationship with God. Not committing to a relationship with Him seemed like a better option than letting Him down.
