Coming This Sunday

Sometimes it can seem like life is one long fight. Sometimes it can seem that God is actually fighting against us. Join us this summer as we take a look at someone who spent their life believing that God was against them only to discover that God was the one fighting hardest for them. Life may be a fight, but we don’t fight alone.

Faith as a First-Generation Christian

For many people, the church and family compartments of life are one and the same. We are often brought up in our parents' religion, and the spheres don't conflict.

Rhythms

When you live life at a breakneck pace, one of the first things to be pushed aside is our conversation with God.

Killing Idols

Week after week, I sit with people who know what their idols are, but seem incapable of eliminating them. I know I worship relationships, but I don’t know how to get rid of that.

Taking the Next Step

The first time I attended Hoboken Grace, I was terrified. I dragged my friend along for moral support, but I was still anxious. Was I going to fit in? Would there be anyone there like me?

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 1,009 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, […]
