• Dinner Groups

    We meet where you are.

    Join a Group

It can be hard to find community.  We want to help you find a group that works for you.

Dinner Groups have always been the core of Hoboken Grace, and are a gathering of 6-12 adults who meet weekly to discuss and work out how Sunday’s conversation applies to their lives. People who attend Dinner Groups will come from different careers, backgrounds, and stages of life but find common ground.

In a Dinner Group you will find a place to get connected and grow spiritually.  This is the place you begin to take your next step of faith that is practical in a community of authentic people.

Whether it is in the way you are cared for or how you care for others, the struggles you will walk through, or the parties you throw, it is here that you will experience family. In a Dinner Group, you can find a place to belong.

Are you passionate about creating community? Or can’t find a group that fits your needs (but are willing to create one)?

Dinner Groups are for everyone! Dinner Groups are attended by adults of all ages, races, and life stages.

Growth occurs most rapidly when done in community. Our Dinner Groups Director, Nick, wrote a helpful post that outlines 5 Reasons to Join A Dinner Group.

No, you do not have to make a long-tem commitment. We have both 10-week groups and groups that meet all year long.

All of our Dinner Groups meet with the same purpose in mind and consist of individuals of various ages and life stages. We encourage you to pick a night where you can be the most consistent.

You will not be the only new person in your group. Dinner Groups are always open by enrollment or invitation, so we have new members joining groups all the time. However, if you want to join a brand new group, short term Dinner Groups are a great option for you.

All you need to prepare for Dinner Group is to listen to Sunday’s conversation before the group meets.

Our only co-ed groups are for married couples in a committed relationship. Because Dinner Group members share about their personal lives, it is important for group to be a safe, confidential place. When talking about personal details, members are willing to share more in a same gender group.

You are welcome to attend whatever group works best for you. The advantage of a Married Dinner Group is the ability to meet other married couples in our area. The advantage of a Men’s or Women’s Dinner Group is that you will have a wide range of members in diverse life stages.

No, a Dinner Group is not a Bible Study in the traditional sense. Dinner Groups are designed for us to not only hear God’s Word, but to apply what we are learning together. Bible Studies, which focus on understanding the books of the Bible and learning tools to study scripture on your own, are not meant to take the place of a Dinner Group. If you are a member of Hoboken Grace and are interested in enrolling in a Bible Study, you can find more information about that here.

When first trying out Dinner Groups, you are welcome to attend multiple groups to get a feel for the group dynamics. After a few weeks, we encourage members to commit to one group where they can invest and attend consistently.
