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 […]

Everything Changes This Fall

Over the past several years, more than 200 people in our church family have taken Financial Peace University, forever changing the way they interact with money. In story after story, we've seen individuals take control of their finances, pay off thousands of dollars in debt and be able to give more freely to those around them. This course has already been transformational for countless people. So this fall, we're taking it to the next level.

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 […]

Now, I Can Celebrate Summer

There were two things I learned right away when I moved to Hoboken. One, don’t talk loudly (or at all) on the PATH, and two, get a beach house in the summer. Both of these things were foreign to me — I wasn’t super familiar with public transportation and, where I’m from, people go to the beach for the day […]

A Rhythm of Rest

When we adopt a rhythm of rest, such as the Sabbath, it's about much more than an opportunity to refuel. It’s about experiencing freedom from the idea that we’re defined by our work, or how well we fulfill society's demands and expectations. It’s a weekly reminder that our value is based not on what we produce, but who we are and who God intended us to be.

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 […]

Your Love Project Reading List

“One of the worst things we believe about love is that it’s supposed to come naturally,” Pastor Chris said during Week 1 of “The Love Project.” If you’re looking to strengthen the relationships in your life — whether it’s with your spouse, the person you’re dating, or even a friend or neighbor — here are some books to help you do just that.

Inviting for Introverts

For years, when Easter rolled around and we started talking on Sundays and in dinner group about inviting others, I couldn’t help but feel somewhat inadequate. On the one hand, I knew that as a Christian, I was supposed to be sharing the message of Christ. But I’m not great at initiating invites to brunch, let alone church.

Who Will You Invite To Easter?

Last year, as a church, we prayed that everyone would invite two people to join them on Easter. Church attendance doubled. A record 1790 people came to Hoboken Grace that Sunday. Studies show that people are more likely to attend church on Easter Sunday than any other date. But what if we not only invited people we know on Easter, […]

10 Reasons to Celebrate

Hoboken Grace started with a dream to impact this city and the thousands of people who call Hoboken home. That dream began coming to life 10 years ago, when a tiny church plant held its first service in a dingy bingo hall. Ever since, Hoboken Grace’s mission has been to help people find their way back to God. Over the past decade, that mission has taken shape in countless ways.

The Story He Told

This year, we partnered with God in loving our city better, building relationships, and serving locally and around the world. As we look back on 2017, it’s overwhelming to see all that He has done. As a church community, we were able to reach more people than ever before, grow more settled in our city and take countless steps in growing closer to Him. The story He’s writing in our city is impossible to capture in a single blog post, but here are just a few of the highlights from the past year
