Change You Can See

When it came to planning this year's 1Day, the Bridge Events Team reached out to dozens of local organizations, businesses and other churches, asking how volunteers could lend a hand. The result is a still-growing list of nearly 25 projects that reach every corner of Hoboken. Nearly 100 volunteers alone will be working at the Hoboken Housing Authority, focusing on 11 projects in six different buildings.

Jumping Into Dinner Group

At one point, I expressed to Pastor Chris my concern that our dinner group seemed to have plateaued. He suggested we needed something that would give our group a jolt. I jokingly said maybe I should take the group skydiving. He thought that might be a good idea. I was kidding, but he was completely serious.

Financial Advice … at Church?

When I first started exploring Hoboken Grace’s website, the “Next Steps” page was surprising. Amid Bible studies, premarital classes and upcoming retreat information was a section on Financial Peace University, a nine-week course that teaches God’s way of managing your personal money matters.

Room to Grow

For years, Eric and Kristen turned down the idea of leading a dinner group. They were busy, and it seemed like a huge time commitment, almost like signing up for a second job. “I didn’t feel like I had the time, but I also didn’t feel like I met the standard of what a dinner group leader should be,” said Kristen. “All of these people would be looking to me for spiritual leadership and guidance. What if I messed up in my own life?”

Yes, You Can Reach People

As Director of Outreach, I often notice that people don’t see themselves as capable of reaching their neighbors, coworkers or community. Before coming on board at Hoboken Grace, I wasn’t entirely sure God could use me to reach others either. I felt held back by my lack of knowledge. I didn’t have a degree from some prestigious seminary, I couldn’t speak or read the Bible’s original Greek or Hebrew, and I couldn’t tell you where Capernaum is on a map.

How to Make Your Finances Add Up

Tasheka works in finance, managing millions of dollars each month to keep her company’s yearly goals on track. But two years ago, she realized she wasn’t putting as much thought into her own financial goals. “I had been in my profession for over six years, and I can’t really say I saw where I had made a major impact as far as saving, tithing or giving back,” she said.

Seeing Double

Twin sisters Karen and Cristina do almost everything together, and that included planning to co-lead a dinner group two years ago. But toward the end of 2015, both sisters felt God nudging them to lead a group of their own. Forming two groups would mean twice as many people would be able to experience the community they'd found. But it would also mean stepping completely outside their comfort zone.
