Finding Joy in Giving

I grew up in a middle-class family and, from what I can tell, we didn't lack money. I started tithing as a child during my Sunday school years 一 to me, tithing was like any other of God’s commandments, like “honor the sabbath” and “do not murder.” My life changed dramatically when my dad passed away in a sudden car accident. I was 15 years old, and we had [..]

The Best 1Day Yet!

Seven years after 1Day launched, it's still incredible to see the impact of one day (or three hours, really) of service. It's amazing to see what can happen when community members come together, sharing the goal of loving their neighbors. With 400 volunteers and 36 projects, this was the biggest 1Day yet! But it wasn't just about what was accomplished. [...]

Time to Hit the Pause Button

Amplify is a day when we all come together for one purpose – to draw closer to the One who loves us most. There are so many distractions throughout the week. We bounce back and forth between meetings, emails, brunches, and the list goes on and on. In the midst of all that, we often struggle to spend time alone with God. That’s where Amplify comes in. It’s a day to [...]

And while some may be familiar if you’ve attended 1Day in the past, volunteers will also be serving local businesses, the Hoboken Housing Authority and several other new organizations. “It’s an opportunity for people to come together and [...]

A First Impression That Stuck

When Shaina first walked through the doors of Hoboken Grace, she didn’t know what to expect. She wasn’t someone who typically went to church, and it wasn’t part of her background growing up. But after watching a few services online, she decided to finally give Hoboken Grace a try. From day one, said Shaina, everyone she met made her feel welcome. [...]

How to Make Your Finances Add Up

Tasheka works in finance, managing millions of dollars each month to keep her company’s yearly goals on track. But two years ago, she realized she wasn’t putting as much thought into her own financial goals. “I had been in my profession for over six years, and I can’t really say I saw where I had made a major impact as far as saving, tithing or giving back,” [...]

Change You Can See

When it came to planning this year's 1Day, the Bridge Events Team reached out to dozens of local organizations, businesses and other churches, asking how volunteers could lend a hand. The result is a still-growing list of nearly 25 projects that reach every corner of Hoboken. Nearly 100 volunteers alone will be working at the Hoboken Housing Authority, [...]

The Thank You That Meant Everything

One of the things I love about Hoboken Grace is the way our teams go above and beyond to impact our community. It only took 35 minutes, 400 granola bars and one woman in tears for me to see this up close and personal. Let me explain… Since joining Hoboken Grace, I have wanted to get more involved, especially [...]

Try Something New This Fall

In a season that evokes images of trees shedding their leaves, we seem to shed some of our own lives, leaving behind old apartments, old jobs and old routines for new ones. And while such life changes could happen any time of year, in Hoboken especially, they seem to happen most often around late summer and early fall. From cycling events [...]

Jumping Into Dinner Group

I felt insecure about my ability to be a good leader. At one point, I expressed to Pastor Chris my concern that our dinner group seemed to have plateaued. He suggested we needed something that would give our group a jolt. I jokingly said maybe I should take the group skydiving. He thought that might be a good idea. I was kidding, but he was completely [...]

Financial Advice … at Church?

When I first started exploring Hoboken Grace’s website, the “Next Steps” page was surprising. Amid Bible studies, premarital classes and upcoming retreat information was a section on Financial Peace University, a nine-week course that teaches God’s way of managing your personal money matters. I discovered that the class instructor, [...]

Room to Grow

For years, Eric and Kristen turned down the idea of leading a dinner group. They were busy, and it seemed like a huge time commitment, almost like signing up for a second job. “I didn’t feel like I had the time, but I also didn’t feel like I met the standard of what a dinner group leader should be,” said Kristen. “All of these people would be looking to me for spiritual leadership and [...]
