This gives you an incredible opportunity to be part of significantly loving your neighbors! We want to give you a sneak peek and let you know how you play a vital role in that opportunity.

Life Is Punny (Fun Intended)

If you’ve checked out any of Hoboken Grace’s events, you’ve most likely seen titles like “Mission Imbocceball” and “Game of Throws” in the Facebook event descriptions, followed by even more wordplay. Why use puns to invite people? And how did this all start? The Writing Team recently sat down with Anna, the creative mind behind the event puns, to ask […]

The Team She Never Thought She’d Join

Yuli is a self-proclaimed introvert who doesn't consider herself tech-savvy. In fact, she's rather clumsy and had barely touched a Mac before last year. So when someone in her dinner group suggested joining the Production Team, she had no intention of following through.

What Is Team Link?

I’m glad you asked! In short, it’s an hour where you will have access to all our teams and their leaders. Pastor Chris will kick off the event, you’ll mingle between each team’s table as you learn more about what each team does. Then, after about 30 minutes you can pick a team you want to belong to and start […]

Production Is Where I Learned…A Lot.

“I want you to pray about apprenticing to become a production team leader.” When Dana first said this to me, my initial response was, “Are you insane?” I had been serving on the Production Team for only about two months. Little did I know, this question was about to change everything I thought I knew and wanted out of life. At that point, I thought you had to know what you were doing to make an impact on the Production Team...

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 […]

Five Common Questions About Joining a Team

Last Sunday, Anthony talked about how each person has a part when on one 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 small part. While […]

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 […]

Taking Baby Steps

Before moving to Hoboken, Ben and Adrienne had spent much of the past few years overseas. Their careers had taken them to Afghanistan, where they’d often go weeks without being able to see each other. When they moved to Hoboken, they were finally in the same place at the same time. They wanted to spend as much time together as possible and were ready to put down roots in their new city.

5 Simple Ways to Care for Others This Week

On Sunday, Anthony talked about what it means to care for others, and how we must all play our part in doing so. “One person can’t care for all of us, but ALL of us can care for someone,” he said. And yet, caring for one another – in good times and bad — isn’t always our default setting. Serving […]

Playing With Purpose

Andrew started playing drums more than a decade ago, synchronizing the music he created with that of his favorite bands. More recently, he made his debut on drums alongside Hoboken Grace's worship band, synchronizing his long-held hobby with an opportunity to serve. The Writing Team spoke with him this week about how he started serving on the team and what the experience has been like so far.

Lending a Hand to a Neighbor

Once a month, a Hoboken Grace table is set up outside of ACME supermarket on 7th and Clinton streets, inviting shoppers to drop off purchases for the Hoboken Shelter as they head out to their cars. On the way in, shoppers are offered a postcard listing “Most Needed Items” – things you’d expect such as cereal, tuna fish and marinara sauce. There are also more unusual things, like postage stamps and socks.

Why I Serve on the Assimilation Team

"I found my faith here; I found my real life and self here, and I wanted to be able to pass that same gift and assurance on to someone else who may be taking those first tentative steps on the same journey," Jarid says of why he joined Connection Points.

Now he is turning his talents toward launching a new ministry at Hoboken Grace as he takes on the role of Care Pastor.
