The Most Meaningful Fast Yet

As I entered what was going to be my 5th consecutive month of “monthly fasting”, I knew it was going to be the most meaningful one yet. Instead of being nervous that it was going to be my LONGEST one to date  (that’s right, a full 12 hours), I had excitement inside of me. I was excited to spend the […]

Staying Connected

No matter who you are or where you come from, we are all living through an uncertain time. But whether you’re working from home (“WFH” as the kids are calling it), watching Netflix in your pajamas or trying to find productive ways to fill your time, Hoboken Grace still believes that our community needs to be there for each other […]

Ash Wednesday

As I walked into Ash Wednesday service, I thought I already knew what I would sacrifice for Lent. I had decided I would wake up 20 minutes early and do a Bible reading every day. I felt making that commitment each day would be a worthy sacrifice and would definitely help me prepare my heart and mind to get closer […]

What A Night!

If you’ve attended Hoboken Grace in the past few weeks, you have no doubt heard about The Home Initiative which is an initiative to have our church family more rooted in the city of Hoboken and officially call this place our HOME. The initiative took a big step forward on Monday night as attendees of Hoboken Grace came together for […]

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 […]

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 […]

Behind the Celebration

Learning to Love Well

In March of 2016, I left home, my job and a community I had built at Hoboken Grace to serve for three years with the Navigators student ministry at a university in Japan. I had been reading Bob Goff’s “Love Does,” and decided that I needed to “just do something” to love people. Loving people, however, turned out to be […]

Oh, the Things You’ll See! (At a Grace Kids Costume Party)

This past Sunday, the weather was dark and drizzly outside. But as I shook off an umbrella and headed indoors to the Hoboken Grace Kids costume party, a little girl yelled, “It’s raining cotton candy!!” Weird analogy but okay? I thought. To my surprise, nothing dispersed that feeling of a gloomy day like witnessing children light up and break through […]

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 […]

When we launched our dinner groups this fall, we started hearing some incredible stories about lives being changed and community being formed. But one of the stories we never expected to see coming walking into this was that dinner groups started to take place around the world!   We currently have a group running at Ohio State University, a family group […]

Why Three?

Each Sunday we welcome close to 200 kids into Grace Kids! I get so excited when I see all of their faces each week. We are so honored to be able to teach them each week about how much Jesus loves them and who HE says they are. Every Sunday we (the team and myself) pray and celebrate all of […]
