Mega-Awesome Costume Party

Many nostalgic thoughts run through our heads when we think about the month of October. The fun decorations, parties or candy (way too much candy), and the chance to dress up as all kinds of different characters from comic books, movies and TV. Some of my favorite costumes I’ve ever had were from my childhood days. I was a frog, […]

Grace Kids Online

My kids love attending Grace Kids on Sunday mornings, I might even dare to say it is the highlight of their week. My 5 year old son Clark often requests “go to church” throughout the week and is disappointed when we explain that it is not Sunday so we can’t go today. Therefore, I’m sure you can imagine his dismay (and mine) when we had to start staying home [...]

Investing in Grace Kids Teachers

A night of glory On Monday night, my daughter’s fifth-grade basketball team had their spectacular first win of the season, with my daughter scoring her first-ever basket in the final play of the game. She had only decided to start playing basketball at the beginning of the year and had been really enjoying it, so the moment brought so much […]

An Exciting Expansion

Over the last few years, God has been growing our children’s ministry at Hoboken Grace. Our Clubhouse rooms (K-5th) are packed and we had one of the largest Grace Kids’ Christmas concerts ever this year. But there is another branch of our children’s ministry that has been expanding too: our middle school group (grades 6-8). In just 3 months, we’ve […]

Celebrating Together!

The Grace Kids Christmas Concert is one of our most favorite Sundays of the year! You can feel the energy and eagerness of the children (and their parents!) the moment you step onto the fourth floor to drop off your little one. The kids are rushing to their classrooms; parents are smiling from ear to ear; and everyone is officially […]

We’re Your Biggest Supporters!

Once a year we dedicate one Sunday to a very special celebration. And this past Sunday we had over 1,200 people join us to be a part of 31 children being dedicated! It was such a special day, and we are so grateful for all of the families and their little ones. We believe that what happens at home is more important than what happens in church […]

When One Buddy Isn’t Enough

As parents, one of the many things we do is worry. It’s natural. We love and care for our children so much and have a huge responsibility to take care of them in so many ways that it can lead to so much worry. We can’t help but wonder… Will they do well in school? Will they make friends? Will they make wise choices? [...]

The Third Voice

One of the most important principles for us to engage as a church family is the principle of "The Third Voice." It's not simply a principle for families to consider. It's a principle for all of us to consider. Every year, twice a year, we make a public commitment to create a safe place for the kids of Hoboken Grace to meet Christ. We commit to show them the authentic love [...]

Taking Baby Steps

Before moving to Hoboken, Ben and Adrienne had spent much of the past few years overseas. Their careers had taken them to Afghanistan, where they’d often go weeks without being able to see each other. When they moved to Hoboken, they were finally in the same place at the same time. They wanted to spend as much time together as possible and were [...]

The Most Meaningful Part of My Week

I wasn’t one of those people. I didn’t dream of working with kids. I didn’t choose a career that involved kids, and when I was asked to serve in Grace Kids as part of my role at Hoboken Grace, I had to reassure myself that it would only be a temporary thing. However, several months (and now years) into being on [...]

Leading The Way

When I started serving in Grace Kids over a year ago, I saw it as a way to give back to a ministry that had done so much for my family of four. As a “fill-in mom” who served a few times a month, I’d bounce around to different classrooms — wherever I was most needed. For those first few months, I felt excited to be there, to be with the kids [...]

An October Tradition

Walk around 301 Garden this Sunday and you’ll likely see some new faces — Wonder Woman, storm troopers, Moana. They’ll carry clinking lightsabers and twinkling tiaras. And while these little ones have waited weeks for Grace Kids’ Costume Party, their teachers are just as excited. They, too, have spent weeks thinking about their costume. [...]

A Buddy in Grace Kids

When Monica began attending Hoboken Grace, she didn’t join a team right away. She decided to wait on God to direct her to what He had in mind. Months later, she heard Pastor Chris mention there was a growing number of children with special needs in Grace Kids — and a need for a program just for them. “My heart leapt,” said Monica. It was the call [...]

Putting God First

When Nate and Natalia moved to Hoboken, one of their biggest prayers was that they’d find a church where they felt comfortable going to service while their two young children attended Sunday School on their own. But the idea of leaving their kids with someone they didn't know felt completely nerve-wracking. But they also wanted to put God first, [...]
