Through A Bunny’s Eyes

I saw love pouring out from every direction - between the families, from the volunteers who paid attention to details such as where the bunnies were going to sit, to the photographers taking those free family photos.

Prayer?

Ugh. I can’t sleep. There is so much going on at work that if something wakes me up, my mind instantly pops into gear and I start thinking about all the things I need to do and what I need to accomplish. It’s cool how creative God makes our minds. Even when we’re not thinking about a problem, we can […]

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.

In Other Words

For the last few weeks, we have been telling you about the upcoming Easter Egg Hunt from our perspective. But, what’s even more interesting is hearing firsthand about the day from last year’s volunteers.

I’ve Been to Sierra Leone Three Times Now. Here’s Why I’ll Keep Going Back.

When I first traveled to Sierra Leone with Hoboken Grace in May 2016, we were able to observe and interact with Enable The Children’s staff for a day as they made home visits. The organization, part of World Hope International, provides physiotherapy and occupational therapy, care, as well as support services to children living with disabilities, many of whom are ostracized by their communities. ETC also works to reduce the stigma surrounding developmental disorders such as autism and Down syndrome.

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 […]

Whatever the reason, we have groups that are about to start meeting for 6-10 weeks and it's a great step for your growth. More on the different types of groups...

Changing Lives in JC

Supporting those in our community helps make our community stronger overall. That’s why Hoboken Grace has a group of organizations that we partner with — to expand the impact that our own community is able to make. This past Sunday, New City Kids shared an opportunity for us to support their students. On April 11th, they’re putting on an extra […]

King and Queen of Connection

Rebecca and Jimmy spent no time worrying about fitting in. They had their hearts set on connection and being a part of the community. Connection events quickly became a part of their everyday life. “We jumped in here,” said Rebecca. “It’s worth the awkwardness of the first few times or two to jump in and meet people that are part of your community, that are part of your family. You’ll start seeing faces you recognize and it won’t be awkward anymore.”

My Starting Point

Kate was trying to get a sense of where she belonged. She’d spent years wrestling with the picture of God she’d developed as a child, an image that didn’t line up with her adult beliefs. In her heart, though, Kate sensed that God was full of grace and forgiveness.

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.

An Egg Hunt To Remember

The Hoboken Grace Easter Egg Hunt is a short six weeks away. This is the perfect time to reflect on last year’s hunt, which was epic. To set the stage, Hoboken received over a foot of snow on the Monday before the hunt. In partnership with the Hoboken Housing Authority, we worked to plow the field to make the hunt […]

The Category 4 storm devastated the Florida Panhandle, reducing houses, schools and churches to rubble. This March, you have the chance to spend five days assisting in the recovery efforts.
