Something Changed on Stage

Something happened to Stephanie when she stepped on stage Easter morning. After eight years at Hoboken Grace, she stood under the stage lights for the first time and looked out across a room packed with people responding to God’s love. “It’s different from up there,” she said. “You see Sunday morning differently. It’s powerful to be part of the congregation worshiping, but it’s also powerful to be up there and see a room of 500 people with their hands lifted, praising God together.”

Fighting Hunger with Community

If you visit ShopRite to buy groceries, chances are you've seen Hoboken Grace there at some point accepting donations for In Jesus Name Charities. Through blistering summers and chilly winters, a team from Hoboken Grace helps keep In Jesus Name stocked by asking shoppers to donate items for local families in need. It's just one of the ways the church tries to support one of Hoboken's oldest charities.

Finding Peace in God’s Promises

As we prayed last week as individuals, as a family, as a community, we prayed for those who have been impacted by the train accident at Hoboken Terminal.

1Day, Countless Ways You Made a Difference

We'll never know exactly how many people were impacted by 1Day Hoboken, but you can see the difference you made in our city. The parks, waterfront and schools are cleaner. There's a new library at HOLA, and cleared-out space at Hoboken High School. You can see the progress being made at Holy Innocents on Willow. And across the city, organizations such as The Hoboken Shelter and In Jesus' Name Charities are now stocked with the 10,000 meals you helped package.

The 11th Street Garden

The community garden on 11th Street in Hoboken has enriched my life. My last local address had a private backyard I could reach by climbing out my kitchen window and down the fire escape. But my days of balancing a tray of perennials in one hand while blindly stepping down a metal ladder are over. When I moved into my new place, there was no backyard. I was soon missing my little plot, and one night prayed against all hope, “God, please give me a garden.”
