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 […]

Four months after Hurricane Michael roared ashore in Florida, becoming one of the most powerful hurricanes to ever make landfall in the United States, residents and businesses are continuing to rebuild. 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.

Worship Night…Is All Music?

Once a year we take a night to free ourselves of distraction and spend time with God. What is it and why do we do this? For some, hearing that music can act as “worship” might be confusing, and for others, it may be a habit that isn’t given much thought. So, why is it that we sing on Sundays? Why is music part of what we do?

What Is Team Link?

I’m glad you asked! In short, it’s an hour where you will have access to all our teams and their leaders. Pastor Chris will kick off the event, you’ll mingle between each team’s table as you learn more about what each team does. Then, after about 30 minutes you can pick a team you want to belong to and start […]

From One Birthday to the Next

The first time I set foot into 301 Garden, it was Hoboken Grace's 10th birthday. I didn’t have a clear idea of who God was at the time, but my roommate convinced me this was a great day to go see what Hoboken Grace was all about -- and also spilled the beans that there would be confetti cannons.

Looking Outward

Resolutions are one of those things people seem to love or hate. Love is a strong word, but as a frequent journaler, I get pretty into them. I’m not talking about your ordinary “go to the gym” resolutions, though — I’ve never been able to follow through on those. I have what I call annual “do something” goals. Each year, […]
