On Sunday, Pastor Chris talked about how Hoboken Grace started with just a handful of people who decided to live lives of significance. They leveraged everything to see what God could do in our community, understanding that we live in a world that doesn’t know who Jesus is.
That group of just a few people made a commitment to join the mission, doing whatever it took to demonstrate His love and grace to those around them. And over 10 years, that handful of people expanded, impacting countless people and loving our city in huge ways.
That’s the impact of just a few people. But what about a thousand? What if all of us joined the mission together? That’s what the next 10 years is about. It’s about making this your story, too.
The impact that God will make on our city will be directly proportionate to how many of us leverage our gifts and time to helping people find their way back to Him.
The easiest way to do that is to join one of the many teams at Hoboken Grace.
So how do you pick one? Great question! Here are two questions to think about:
1). What do you love to do? What makes you feel alive?
Do you love helping others? Our Community Impact/Outreach teams work to impact those in our city, demonstrating God’s love in tangible ways (random acts of kindness, supporting local shelters, etc.).
Or maybe you love working with kids. Serving with Grace Kids can make a huge impact on our city’s children — and their parents.
If you thrive on creativity, the Arts Team might be a good fit. The team is made up of musicians, designers and contractors working to communicate His value through the Arts.
2). What do you consider your gifts?
Are you a people person who thrives on making connections? Or maybe your friends rave about your party-planning abilities (this is Hoboken, after all). The Assimilation Team or First Impressions could be a great fit. Those serving on First Impressions include Sunday morning greeters, a hospitality team, and those who set up and tear down the space each week, creating a welcoming environment for everyone. The Assimilation Team includes the people who stand at Connection Points on Sunday mornings, as well as other teams that work together to help people take and celebrate their next steps in their journey with Christ.
Another great opportunity is the Analytics Team, which helps other teams make the most of their resources as they move forward.
Still unsure? We’re here to help!
