Home is Where He Is

Kim and her family thought they had found a home in Hoboken, they had purchased a condo, their kids were settled into school, and the whole family was plugged in at Hoboken Grace. Everything was going according to plan, when suddenly life took an unexpected turn, and Kim’s husband’s job found them all uprooting and moving to the Dominican Republic […]

Christmas Eve at the Lawn: A Night to Remember!

As Christmas Eve approached, a rainy weather forecast had us all a little worried about whether we’d be able to host the outdoor service at The Lawn, but the rain held off and the temperature warmed up too! As everyone gathered to celebrate Him (safely and socially distanced!), the feeling of the night was just perfect. Several Christmas trees–each lit […]

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. The God she’d learned about growing up valued good behavior and favored those who followed a set of rules. In her heart, though, Kate sensed that God was full of grace and forgiveness.

Vision Nights

Numbers tell a story, and that’s especially true when it comes to your home. Square footage, for example, can paint a picture of just how much you are -- or aren’t -- roughing it in a city apartment. And the number of years you’ve lived in one place can also say a lot. So it seems appropriate that numbers played a huge role during Hoboken Grace’s first-ever […]

Untapped Resources

Questions We Don’t Ask at Church React or Angular? Is G Suite ready for enterprise? RAID10 with spinning disks or RAID5 with SSDs? Stay technical or get into management? What’s interviewing at Amazon like? How much should I negotiate the offer? I spent most of my career in the technology industry, and those are some of the many questions that […]

Hayden’s House of Healing

In November 2011 my husband Rob and I found out that our second baby was diagnosed in utero with a significant heart defect (HLHS). I was scared out of my mind at the unknown of all of this, but found a way to build a community of supporters around the idea that praying for Hayden would keep him safe. In August of 2012, Hayden passed away [...]

Through A Bunny’s Eyes

I saw love from every single person who put attention to detail into where those bunnies were going to sit, the backdrop behind them and the photographers taking those free family photos. And then there was the feeling I experienced as those kids sat beside me, eager to pose with Cottontail. I initially wanted to be a bunny because [...]

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 […]

This past weekend, about 20 people gathered for a one-day conference in Montclair to outline a vision plan for 2019. Hosted by Devin, who has attended Hoboken [...]

Have You Ever Questioned Your Faith?

Remember RadioShack? Yeah, I know. It’s hard to believe they used to be one of the premier retailers of the ’90s. They had a slogan that went, “You’ve got questions? We’ve got answers.” It was wildly successful. So much so, that I’m still quoting it from 1991. So, here’s a question for you: Have you ever [...]

The Daylilies on Willow Avenue

Last fall, during Hoboken Grace’s 1Day event, two teams cleared out a pair of abandoned plots of land, weeding, picking up garbage and digging out stumps. Nearly a year later, the plots on Willow Avenue and Park Street are still being cared for by Hoboken Grace. For James, the church’s Director of Community Impact and Outreach, tending to these small […]

That Time We Almost Got Arrested

How can we serve our city in creative ways? That’s the question we asked that almost got us arrested. We were trying anything and everything we could to serve, so when we heard there were movies at the park every Wednesday, we jumped on the opportunity. We could go down and hand out free water bottles to everyone who was […]
