WHO WE ARE

Mile Square Church is a new Christian community in Hoboken. We wanted to create a church that no matter what your experience with religion was you could still step into this community and feel safe to ask your questions and seek your purpose together with others.

We’re a church that wants to be a compelling connection to Christ and the Christian community.

In other words, we’re just followers of Jesus leaning into his grace, pursuing authenticity, collaborating together to make a difference, and having fun doing it. Got questions? Just ask.

Next Worship Service

February 17, 2019 @ 10 am

Save the date! On February 17 at 10am we will be meeting for worship at the Bowtie Cinemas located at 14th and Clinton St. in Hoboken. Click/tap below to learn more about what to expect. 

Join a Connect Group

When we think of church, many of us usually think about the hour or two you spend there on a Sunday morning. But do you think one hour on Sunday morning is enough time to really bring you to the place you want to be in your faith journey? We believe you will go further in your faith faster by joining a Connect group.

Take a look below at the groups we have running this quarter and join at any time (sooner is better!). Groups begin January 24 with a kick-off party at Carpe Diem in uptown Hoboken.

To learn more and join a group, download the Church Center app on your phone and search for Mile Square Church.

Emotionally Healthy Spirituality

A book study based on Pete Scazzero’s book Emotionally Healthy Spirituality. In this group you will learn how to apply powerful truths to unleash a spiritual and emotional revolution in your life. This is a co-ed group.

Every Good Endeavor

A book study based on Tim Keller’s book Every Good Endeavor. In this group you will learn how to integrate your faith and your work together in a meaningful way to build a foundation for a thriving professional and balanced personal life. This is a co-ed group.

Jesus of Nazareth

Who was Jesus of Nazareth? What did he say? What did he do? Why does it matter? In this group you will be challenged to engage with Jesus of Nazareth by reading key selections from his four biographies, and learn who he really was and why it matters for your life now.

Real Talk is a discussion where we talk about religion, politics, and everything in between. Sounds crazy, right? We know.

However, in a culture that seems to become more polarized by the minute, we believe that a respectful forum like this is not just important, but necessary.

Conversations take place every 3rd Monday of the month at 7:30pm at the Mason Civic League (see event link for specific details).

Join the Launch team
What is the launch team?

The Mile Square Church Launch Team is a continuously growing group of people whose aim is to come together to use their various gifts and abilities to create a Christian faith community in the city of Hoboken. Our work together will culminate in 2019 as we prepare to launch healthy, weekly worship and a thriving, missional church that will connect people to a life-altering and eternity altering relationship with Jesus.

What can you expect from us?

Regardless of whether you plan to call Mile Square Church home, you call another church home, or are still figuring out what you believe, we commit to helping you learn more about what it looks like to be a disciple of Jesus. We want to be there for you through thick and thin and pray for you however we can.

What will be expected of me?

Starting January 20, 2019 we will be holding regular, monthly worship services in Hoboken. What would that mean for you? That looks like helping make those services in whatever capacity feels right for you. Maybe it’s playing in the worship band. Maybe it’s helping set-up and tear-down our equipment. Maybe it’s greeting people and making sure they feel welcome. Whatever it is, there is a role that’s perfect for you.

What if...?
  •  I belong to another church? That’s great! Maybe you’re even a member or a leader there. If so, that’s awesome and we’re glad that Christian community is serving you well and that you can call it home. Please remain there. But if you believe as we do that faith in Jesus is a game-changer, will you help us create a community where someone might meet that same Jesus for the first time? Furthermore, will you help us create a community where someone will one day be able to it call home? If your answer is “yes” it will only require one Sunday a month.
  • I’m looking for a church home?  We’re really glad you’re looking for a church home and we hope we’ll earn the right to be that church. Helping this mission is a huge opportunity for you to grow in your faith. It’s also an opportunity to be part of making a worship experience that you, your friends, and your family would love. On top of that, we’d also encourage you to take the next step and join a Connect group either this or the following term and come to any MSC event that’s happening!
  • What if I’m still figuring out what I believe, or what if I don’t believe at all? Figuring out what we believe and understanding who God is, is a big deal. James, the brother of Jesus, wrote that when we draw near to God, he draws near to us. Jesus has told us that telling others about God’s love and showing others that love in a tangible way is really important to God. So it stands to reason that joining the launch team will be a great way to get to know God more. On top of that, we would encourage you to take your questions and skepticism to a Connect group. We want to walk with you as you try to figure out Christianity.

Reach

Jesus taught that the second greatest commandment was to love your neighbor as yourself. Love is more than a feeling; it requires action.

That’s why we believe it’s not merely good, but necessary to reach out into our community.

The beautiful thing about love is that it doesn’t require a church building. Love goes beyond the walls and into the world, and that’s why we’re starting now. Will you reach with us?
Latest Sermons
Jesus Our Brother
Sometimes our circumstances can make us feel alone. It makes us wonder if a God in heaven can truly relate to what we’re going through on earth. Can God truly empathize with us?

Text: Hebrews 2

Finding Your Religion

Everyone has a religion, an account of everything. It’s how we make sense of the world. But what happens when that “religion” doesn’t cut it anymore?

Text: John 4:43-54

Water Into Wine

Jesus’ first miracle, the beginning of his ministry on Earth, was turning water into wine for a wedding party. Turns out, it was amazing wine, and we see that He is saving the best for last.

Text: John 2:1-11
