The Home Initiative is a two year generosity journey. It is our goal to expand our generosity from our current level, $6 million over two years, to $12 million over two years.
Yes, we are prepared to accept both stock donations as well as asset donations. Please contact [email protected] to initiate those types of transactions.
No. All donations are part of The Home Initiative. Our goal includes our current giving, which means all giving goes to one fund.
We don’t currently have a location identified, but we are working with an excellent local real estate team and have begun conversations with several local developers.
Our team would love to answer any questions that you have. Feel free to email [email protected] and we will get back to you as soon as possible!
The First Big Give on March 29th will kick off the two-year Home Initiative. Consistent giving should continue from this point forward. We encourage you to consider what your total commitment is, then divide by how often you give and set up a regular pattern of giving towards The Home Initiative. The Lord may lead you to be generous in additional ways as you go, so remain open to His leading moving forward.
Yes! Give in the menu of this page to enroll in online giving or go to edgewatergrace.com/give. We also have other options for giving. The traditional way is to drop your checks or cash gifts off each week following our services using the giving envelope (found on the side of the giving boxes on Sunday). Giving via text message and mobile giving using our Hoboken Grace mobile app is also available. Additionally, you can use your bank’s online bill pay tools, which is convenient and typically free to you and the church. Go to edgewatergrace.com/give to learn more about each of these options.
We will provide periodic updates to all of our Home Initiative givers. Currently, our series is set to launch on February 9th. Please keep praying for our entire family as we engage this together.
Yes! The Home Initiative was crafted with you in mind. The Home Initiative is a one-fund generosity initiative, meaning it is different from a traditional capital campaign where you are called to give an extra gift above and beyond your normal giving. The Home Initiative is a call to sacrificial generosity for everyone. If you have never given before, this is your chance to get in the game! Get started now! Make your commitment at thehomeintiative.com.
We believe the local church has the most compelling mission to which we can give our lives. We would love for you to make Hoboken Grace your church home as we bring hope to our world through The Home Initiative. You can get started by joining us for NEXT, our quick introductory class held after each service every Sunday. In this 15-minute overview, you will learn more about who we are as a church and how to get connected. To learn more about Hoboken Grace, go to edgewatergrace.com.
During this two-year period, every dollar given to The Home Initiative is a contribution toward the initiative. This means that everything—including our general ministry budget, our local and global mission work, and our expansion project—is being fueled by The Home Initiative. There is no designated giving.
If you are currently making payments to eliminate debt, we commend you for your progress on this important goal. You should continue to do so. If we can help you on the journey to become debt-free, please let us know. Hoboken Grace offers biblically-based budget counseling, financial planning resources and a financial course called Financial Peace University.
Being in debt doesn’t eliminate our opportunity to give, however. Giving isn’t about what God wants from you, but what he wants for you. God instructs us to find a way to give with joy at all times, regardless of our circumstances. Please contact us if you would like to speak with a budget counselor.
Be creative as you explore ways you and your family can give toward the The Home Initiative. You might have stocks, property, or another form of stored resources with which God has blessed you and from which he might be prompting you to give. If you need assistance facilitating gifts of property or stock, please contact [email protected].
We know your desire was to be obedient and stretch your faith as you made your commitment. If a personal or financial hardship changes your circumstances to a point where you’re unable to fulfill your commitment, then take the extra time as needed, Please, don’t hesitate to let us know. We’d be honored to offer you prayer and counsel at any time.
