July 4th fell on a Sunday this year, so we hosted a fun BBQ at the Lawn! There were hot dogs, hamburgers, cornhole, exploding watermelons and much more! The Lawn space is one that we’ve grown to love over the past year and once again it was the perfect venue to bring the community together.
Roman and James worked hard all morning and afternoon providing their grilling services, while Pastor Chris showed off his precision skills in the cornhole tournament. Of course it wouldn’t be a Hoboken Grace celebration without a photobooth area for all the pictures to be taken (because if there are no pictures, did it really happen?). The sun shining and rain holding off for the entire day was the extra cherry on top.
On a typical Sundaywith three different services and Grace Kids going on at the same time, people are often spread out. But not on this day. We saw family and friends of all ages running around, catching up and playing games with one another. You could look out and see everyone celebrating the moment. This type of environment is what we hope to provide as much possible! Not only for the time we get to pause and reflect on the importance of this holiday to our country, but for the community and connection we get along with it.
