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 […]

If Our July 4th Party Were Reviewed On Yelp

If Our July 4th Party Were Reviewed On Yelp Yesterday marked another much anticipated Fourth of July party on the pier. As we roasted under the summer sun, everyone broke a sweat competing in a cornhole competition for the ages. Fun, new friends, and food were in abundance, so much so, even the birds [...]

Finding Him in the Quiet

“God is always there — it is our busyness that makes us blind. When we stay quiet, we will be able to find Him.” For Xiaochan, it was this quote from Hoboken Grace’s Axiom retreat that exemplified the entire experience. The weekend-long retreat, which took place earlier this month, is an opportunity to get away from that busyness and draw closer [...]

Summer at the Movies

A group will be handing out popcorn at the city’s free movie screening at Pier A each Wednesday night, starting June 20. The series kicked off this week with a showing of La La Land. Hoboken Grace began serving [...]

If you’ve been thinking of joining us on one of our two Axiom retreats this spring and summer, I have two words for you: Do it! Whether you’re considering the retreat in Morristown or Montana, here are three reasons why you should make attending a priority. 1). Making Space. Did you know our Father desires alone time with us?

Why Attending Amplify Is Worth It

Nowadays there are so many ways to sharpen your skills. You can listen to podcasts, read a blog or two, YouTube it, or even attend a webinar. So, why bother with the time and expense of an in-person conference like Amplify? As Proverbs 27:17 says, “As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” Now, I’m no hunter, but [...]

Press Reset

Try as we might to grow closer to God, our daily whirlwind of responsibilities and distractions often pulls us in other directions. But what if you set aside several days to simply experience His presence? This spring and summer, you’ll have two opportunities to do just that. From June 1-3, Hoboken Grace members are invited to [...]

An Album Years in the Making

Night had already come, but the streetlights stayed dark. Hurricane Sandy had hit just the week before, and Hoboken was only starting to recover. So it was dark when Dana got into her car to pick up her husband. And it stayed dark as her car idled in miles of traffic, going nowhere. As she often did when she was alone in the car, Dana began to hum. Then the [...]

10 Reasons to Celebrate

Hoboken Grace started with a dream to impact this city and the thousands of people who call Hoboken home. That dream began coming to life 10 years ago, when a tiny church plant held its first service in a dingy bingo hall. Ever since, Hoboken Grace’s mission has been to help people find their way back to God. Over the past decade, that mission has [...]

The Story He Told

As a church community, we were able to reach more people than ever before, grow more settled in our city and [...]

The Gifts That Keep Giving

It was a birthday with special significance, and not just because Raakhee’s daughter was turning 1. Before reaching that 12-month milestone, Satya had already survived cancer. So when her parents began thinking about her first birthday, they told friends and family they didn’t want gifts — only things they could donate. Little did they know, that [...]

Mind, Body, Spirit

The words “Mind, Body, Spirit” are vividly displayed at the end of the Hoboken YMCA pool. The lettering first made an impression on me years ago when I swam laps there once a week. One moment I’d be surrounded by the blurry water below, then my head would break the water’s surface in a traditional butterfly stroke. As I inhaled, I would look [...]

How a Gift Exchange Grew From One Person to 1,300

The Hoboken Christmas Exchange started with a simple desire to give. Kara had been looking to donate some baby items, but she was unsure how to get them into the hands of a family in need. Her search led her to not one, but several families that fit the description. They needed other basic items as well: [...]
