Together, we were able to love and serve our community in so many impactful ways in 2022.
We have also seen God powerfully answer our prayers this year. Whether it was through people taking the step of baptism, using our family to help people find their way back to God, or through the development of our new space. It’s amazing to see how much God has accomplished through our family and we can’t wait to see how He continues to move in 2023!
To celebrate, here’s a look back at some of our favorite photos from 2022!
At Hoboken Grace, we’re about more than just Sunday! Creating community is so important and one of the ways we do that is through our connection events. From coffee and food crawls, to trivia, to sporting events, we had so many fun ways to get connected in 2022. We had 87 connection events held this year and are so grateful for the friendships and memories that were able to take place through all of our different events!
We completed the Home Initiative, closed on our very first permanent location, and our plans were approved by the city! We have seen God move so powerfully through this journey with our new building and answer so many prayers. We are so excited for all that is to come with our new community center and how we will be able to display the love of Christ to our community through our new space.
We had over 4,000 people be a part of our Easter Egg Hunt this year! Although we had some rain, it didn’t stop us from having a great time!
This Easter was a super special and fun service, filled with a few different surprises! It’s not every Sunday that we have a breakdancer on stage with our band covering an Encanto song!
Dinner Groups are at the core of Hoboken Grace. They provide a place for community, connection, and spiritual growth. We had 332 first time dinner group members, which is a huge celebration! We also had 59 dinner group leaders and 2,228 total dinner group gatherings this year!
Throughout the year, we gave people the opportunity to share their stories right upstairs at 301 Garden. It is so impactful getting to hear people’s stories on Sundays about how God is working and moving in their life.
VIBE and the Quad have grown exponentially this year! We are able to provide a safe environment for middle-schoolers and high-schoolers to connect, have fun, and either start or deepen their relationship with God. We are so excited about how God is moving through these groups, especially at this impactful age.
Every Sunday at 301 the band beautifully leads us all in worship. We are so thankful for the all the hard work and energy that they put into every service and how we get to worship God through the songs they sing!
At Hoboken Grace, our mission is to help people find their way back to God. It is incredible to see that we had 748 first time guests, over 29,000 adults who attended in person and over 18,000 people who watched live online! We can’t wait to see what next year brings!
Sundays are always extra special when we get to celebrate baptisms together as a church and this year we had over 40 baptisms! We are so honored to be a part of this moment of those who took this step of faith with us. We can’t wait to see how they will continue to grow!
This year, we did something we’ve never done before at Hoboken Grace. We had our directors on stage one Sunday where they were able to share all about the teams they lead. Our staff has grown significantly this past year and we can’t wait to see all that God has in store for our team this upcoming year!
We are so grateful for all those who serve on a team to make Sundays and beyond what they are! We had 154 people join a team this year!
We had so many great conversations this year, one of them being our ‘Enjoying God’ series. Not only did the messages leave a lasting impact, but we also had a lot of fun with this series! Each week we did something special, whether it was handing out ice cream to everyone on Sunday or filming our announcements while eating hot wings, jet skiing, or rock climbing! We kept everyone laughing and on their toes… especially Pastor Anthony!
Oh … and we had food trucks too!
At Hoboken Grace we believe we don’t just live here, we love here! Giving back to our community is so important to us and one way we do that every year is through our 1Day Hoboken. This year we celebrated our 12th annual 1Day! Things looked a little different due to the weather, but our Bridge Events team did an amazing job at rolling with the unexpected as we turned our 1Day into 2 days. We had over 650 people come together to love our city in not just 1 day, but 2 days!
We had so much fun up on the fourth floor as Grace Kids had their annual Mega-Awesome Costume Party! It is one of the cutest Sundays of the year, as our Grace Kids dress up in adorable costumes!
We celebrated another year of loving our community this Christmas, by ensuring that no child in our city goes without a gift at Christmas. Through our Christmas Exchange, over 1,300 children were able to receive gifts. We are so grateful for all of our donors, volunteers, and the Bridge Events Team that worked so hard to make this event possible!
We kicked off our first Sunday in December with our annual Grace Kids Christmas concert! The stage filled with kids from two years old up to our fifth graders, as they sang our favorite Christmas songs! Even for those that don’t have kids, it brought a smile to everyone in the audience.
We celebrated the holiday season and our ‘Awkward Family Christmas’ conversation with ugly Christmas sweaters, fun photo backdrops, Christmas sweater giveaways, lots of Christmas lights, and an amazing original song from our band!
We can’t wait for another amazing year ahead and to see how God continues to move in and through the lives of our church family.
