The Fight: Now What?

How do we ensure that our stories are defined by God’s will instead of our appetites? What lies are we letting stew? How do we back away from our weaknesses and instead embrace His promises? Our five-week series about the life of Jacob might be over, but that doesn't mean the battle is. Here are five ways you can continue "The Fight."

Lights, Camera, Popcorn

Under constellations and against the backdrop of New York City’s lights, picnic blankets and lawn chairs dot the grass at Pier A Park each Wednesday night. But there's something different about this year's Movies Under the Stars. The air is saturated with a hint of salt and butter. Moviegoers wait in line along the sidewalk. And a group stands in the corner, handing out free bags of popcorn.

A Bond That Spans Thousands of Miles

Liberty in North Korea is one of Hoboken Grace’s longtime partners, and a missions team has worked with them in South Korea each year since 2013. This week, the LiNK staff sent an email worth sharing, thanking those who visited in May and everyone from Hoboken Grace who has supported their work to settle refugees fleeing economic and political oppression.

Growing Together and Separately

While Hoboken Grace offers couples the opportunity to join dinner groups together, many continue to attend a group on their own. "While it is important that my husband and I grow together in our faith, it is also important that we grow separately," says Sarah. "The more time I pursue Christ on my own, the more I recognize Him as my Savior and the one certainty in my life, and I don’t expect my husband to step into that impossible role.”

‘All They Wanted Was to Be Loved’

Thirteen people returned earlier this month from Hoboken Grace's annual trip to Mexico, where they visited the staff and children of Casa Hogar Alegre orphanage. The team helps out in almost every aspect of the children's lives, from painting and cleaning to playing and helping out with homework.

Striking the Right Tone

“What I enjoy most is running sound when we’re at the peak of our worship set, just looking around and seeing everybody fully into it, their hands in the air, and not thinking about what things look like, what things sound like,” says Jeff, who serves on the production branch of the Worship Team. The team uses sound, lights and media to create an intimate and inviting environment each Sunday morning.

PORTRAITS: Stepping Off the Stage

“God kept on coming back to me and telling me that we could get through this together,” says Jen. “He said it would be hard, but that it was time for me to stretch, time for me to grow, time for me to trust Him. And He promised me that I would learn a whole lot about Him and myself in the process.”

Building Connections in Kenya

It started with cards and pictures. The kids at TRUE Mentors in Hoboken and Rehema Home orphanage in Kenya would send each other letters. Fast-forward several years, and Hoboken Grace will send a team on a third trip to Kenya this fall, and a fundraiser for the Rehema Home will take place at the Pilsener Haus & Biergarten on July 14.

Books for Your Summer Reading List

The best books, it seems, come crashing onto us like waves, splashing cold water on old ideas and perceptions. They erode the ways we once viewed ourselves, God and the world around us and shift the sands of our thinking. They soften us like seaglass, then retreat with the tide, leaving us transformed in a way we never quite expected. […]

It Takes a Village

Parents are invited to participate in the Baby Dedications offered twice a year. The next one is coming up and will be held on Sunday, October 16th. In preparation of the dedication, parents come together to talk about what it looks like to make a commitment to raise their children to know Christ.

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.
