What’s Holding You Back?

Sometimes I don’t believe my head and my heart communicate with one another. Do you have this problem? I can tell myself 100 times: You need to get up and exercise because it benefits your health and wellness. Or, pick up that book you’ve been slowly working through, it’s better for your brain and vocabulary than binge-watching Netflix. But often my [...]

An Encore at Hoboken High School

At Hoboken’s public schools, community theater is a longstanding tradition. For the past seven years, the entire district has worked together to produce an annual musical. It’s one of the biggest community events put on by the high school, requiring two months of planning, not to mention the involvement of over 150 students in kindergarten [...]

Down in the Dumps

The other day, I felt pretty down in the dumps. I don’t know why, but I just woke up on the wrong side of the bed. Has this ever happened to you? You can’t explain it, but you’re just grumpy. I don’t mean those of you who need a morning coffee before you can speak, much less speak coherently and kindly. I mean just being grumpy — those times [...]

Saying Yes

It had taken several years to say yes. “I’ve always wanted to serve on a mission trip before but never did,” says Erik. “When Hoboken Grace began promoting all the trips, I remember saying to myself that this was the year I would go and serve.” Brandt also decided that this would be the year he’d finally go on a mission trip.

The Surprising Colors of God’s Plan

It had been a long, frustrating day, trying to balance my website expansion with a desire to clean out closets. My life was changing, but this shift seemed to be taking so long. For several years I’d been re-examining priorities, refocusing my goals and working to make my career dreams a reality. But parts of my life still felt out of sync, and I was [...]

Laying a Solid Foundation

I grew up in a traditional household and attended a pretty traditional church. While I never walked away from Christ (or so I had thought), I moved away from the idea of a brick-and-mortar place of worship some time ago. For me, attending a weekly service felt like I was just going through the motions. I felt empty and unfortunately did not receive [...]

Japan, Year 1

One morning last June, Dario woke up in surprise to a chorus of cicadas. “They were incredibly loud,” he remembers. “They would wake me up every day at 6 a.m. and go for three or four hours straight, and they were like that the whole summer.” It was one of the many things that reminded Dario he was not back home in New Jersey. [...]

Instrumental Growth

On a Sunday morning last month, Maria sang with the band, played the cello and performed a piece she wrote on guitar. Call her a triple threat, or just one of the Worship Team’s most versatile musicians. But it’s been a long journey from her nerve-racking audition to that point. In the past year and a half, serving on the team has helped [...]

Top Ten Tips for Trips

One of the questions most often asked by people embarking on their first mission trip is “What should I bring?” While our varied trips take us around the globe – from Asia to Central America and Africa – there are a few necessities common to the experience no matter where you go. We surveyed some of our veteran mission travelers and [...]

Breathing It All In

Spring in Hoboken. Warmer weather, blossoming trees, tulips and jonquils and unnamed flowerets in little unexpected places among the city structures. I opened my bedroom windows during the day to let in all the fresh air and pollen – probably not a good idea since I’ve had a horrible cough for three weeks. It started with a five-day bout of [...]

A Trip Like No Other

When a team from Hoboken Grace went to South Korea last spring, they threw a birthday party for a refugee, presented a career workshop and visited a propaganda artist’s studio. It wasn’t your average mission trip, said Micah. “I think we are so accustomed to forwarding God's mission through acts such as building or cleaning,” she said. “But [...]

Our Next Series

No one wants a childish relationship, but we continue to hold on to childish ideas of love. A grown-up love is built on a grown-up understanding of how we give and receive love. Join us this spring as we allow God to break down some of our childish ideas of love and replace them with a grown-up love!

Our Biggest Celebration

We officially kicked off the season of Easter last week with our first Ash Wednesday service. That was only the beginning. We're pulling out all the stops this year, celebrating Easter with seven services over one epic weekend. And then there's the Easter Egg Hunt, with two hunts for twice the fun.

The Hunt That Changed Everything

When Gwen and her family were looking for a church. They’d visited a few in the area but hadn’t yet found a place to call home. Then, a friend invited Gwen and her son to Hoboken Grace’s Easter Egg Hunt. “I thought it’d be fun,” she says, but she didn't have any other expectations.
