How A Rock Concert Changed The Way I Worship

I used to be such a stiff when it came to worship. Lifting my hands felt so awkward. I found it so hard to let go of wondering what people might be thinking of me. Then one March evening in 2009, everything changed. I was at a concert for one of my favorite bands, an indie group from Kansas City […]

A Local School Relationship

It’s amazing to watch our dinner group members support one another, but also to see groups that work together to support the community. That’s what happened last Monday, when a dozen volunteers helped dismantle old chalkboards at the local Mustard Seed School. Two dinner groups worked on the project, along with a few other volunteers from Hoboken Grace. “The chalkboards […]

Bring Your Phone

It’s a perplexing problem – just what are you supposed to do with your hands during church? Twiddle your thumbs? Shred a napkin quietly in your lap? Hold the hand of your significant other, and squeeze it meaningfully everytime the message really speaks to their issues? How about take out your smartphone and follow along? That’s right, we want you […]
