It’s been an excellent three weeks as we’ve walked through some really difficult conversations and in the midst of those found beautiful answers that speak to the incredible love God has for us. We’ve seen how He cares for us, how He is pursuing us, and how He’s leading us to a greater expression of love. It’s been a tough […]
Paths Experiencing Grace Growing in Grace Demonstrating Grace – Not just the homeless. The homeless man is so much easier to love than the jerk in your dinner group. You control the relationship with the homeless guy. You can’t control the relationship with your brother. This isn’t about just loving those who are extreme, this begins here.
Ok, so I’ve begun to trust him personally. I’m beginning to pursue experiencing him consistently. Where do I go next? What’s my next step? This week we build upon experience as we look at how we not only experience Grace, but “grow in grace”.
One of the most common questions I’m asked by those beginning this journey of grace is, “Where do I begin?” This week we answered that question. Whether you’re beginning, restarting, or helping someone else begin, this is crucial. The first steps on any journey will determine much of what happens from there on out. To check out the story Chris […]
This week kicked off our new “Paths” series. Where we discuss how in life we are constantly choosing paths that will eventually determine our destiny. Even the smallest of choices can put us on a path we never intended to walk or a path filled with joy. This week we specifically examine the paths before us and together begin a […]
Our ability to understand and celebrate what took place on Easter morning is based on a greater understanding of the story God continues to tell.
One of the first steps we are called to take when we become a christian is the step of baptism. This physical act is a symbol of what takes place in our lives spiritually when we trust God that Jesus Christ has made it possible for us to be adopted as God’s son or daughter. It’s an outward expression of […]
This week is our last week in the Making Love Last conversation! This week we put the final piece in place as we look at a principle that is often misunderstood and keeps us from freedom and joy in our relationships with one another.
The next step in building our foundation is surrounded by practical application. Listen in as we look at several key relational tools that God gives us and the foundational principle that will allow you to put them into action.
We’ve begun to lay out the foundation. This past week we saw how God is leading us towards loving those around us the way he has loved us. We’ve begun to see what’s necessary for a lasting loving relationship. Listen in to this week’s message as we put the next piece in place and continue to explore how we can […]
How do we stay connected to the people we love – whether we’re married or single or dating? Does real love still exist? What does that look like? How do we stay there? Listen in as we look at what it means to lay the foundation for a love that lasts.
When your life is based on God’s promises you have an incredible opportunity to live with expectation. Unfortunately we often miss this. We follow, but we’re constantly afraid. It’s time to move to a life of expectation.
This week we’re back to our conversation, “FEARLESS”. We’ve begun the journey, we’re dealing with the fear. Now it’s time to replace the idols. You can never simply eliminate an idol. You must replace it. This week we take our next step towards a fearless life.
What do I do with the fear? Even though I know He’s bigger and stronger, even though I know I can trust Him, there is still a feeling of fear. What do I do with that? This week we began to break that down and laid out a plan for eliminating that feeling that seems to linger even in the […]
With fear influencing so much of our lives, and with the realization that fear is not what God wants for us, how do we begin the journey toward fearlessness? This week we look at step one. The conversation is about more than simply getting over it. Fear is not something you just get over. There needs to be a fundamental […]
In a world that seems to be moving faster every day anxiety and stress can easily dominate our lives. Whether it’s just a few select moments or a lifestyle that we live with, fear is paralyzing. It destroys our ability to enjoy the life we’ve been given. It is not what God intended for you.
Listen in as we experience Hoboken Grace’s first ever Christmas Eve service!
We’ve established the foundation. We’ve walked through the process of bringing this into our conversations with others. This week prepare to simply be encouraged. The truth of what God has done in your life and who you now are is overwhelming. That’s what this week is all about.
Last week we established the foundation for our series, “Lifted”. 1. Encouragement is not simply making someone feel better, it is building hope and confidence in those around us. 2. Encouragement must be based on truth. 3. Our hope and confidence is found in what Christ has done for us, not ourselves. This week we move forward from there and […]
Outside of the instruction to, “love one another”, there is nothing in scripture that we are instructed to do more in the lives of those around us than encourage. It is one of the primary roles that we play in each others lives. It is crucial to our family and crucial to our mission. This week we began, “Lifted”, a […]
