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 [...]

Yes, You Can Reach People

As Director of Outreach, I often notice that people don’t see themselves as capable of reaching their neighbors, coworkers or community. Before coming on board at Hoboken Grace, I wasn’t entirely sure God could use me to reach others either. I felt held back by my lack of knowledge. I didn’t have a degree from some prestigious seminary, [...]

Seeing Double

Twin sisters Karen and Cristina do almost everything together, and that included planning to co-lead a dinner group two years ago. But toward the end of 2015, both sisters felt God nudging them to lead a group of their own. Forming two groups would mean twice as many people would be able to experience the community they'd found. But [...]

Why We’re Throwing a Party This Saturday

They played Frisbee and Spikeball, catching some rays during a brief break from a busy summer. They formed circles on the park’s lawn, sharing stories under both shade and sun. And while the party held in their honor last year was meant to be all play and no work, New City Kids’ teen interns couldn’t help [...]

Hopeful Grieving

I learned my mom’s disease was terminal the moment she was diagnosed. I remember the doctor coming out of surgery and ushering me into a quiet room that was just off from the waiting room. I sat anxiously awaiting the results from her surgery. “Your mom is in serious trouble,” he said. He was a kind doctor and his eyes told me he was deeply [...]

A Moment Months in the Making

After serving on the Family Life Team for nearly two years, Angie has been on stage for countless baptisms at Hoboken Grace. But while each one was special in its own way, this one was different. Now a dinner group leader, Angie had been a part of the many conversations, prayers and text messages leading up to this moment. [...]
