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.

Launching in 2019

Weekly Worship

As we ready ourselves for public worship services in Hoboken, we are grounding our preparation in a monthly worship and prayer gathering called Vespers. If you would like to pray and worship with us for the mission of Jesus in Hoboken, or are perhaps thinking about joining the launch team we’d love to have you pray with us. 

Join a Connect group

New groups debuting September

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 at the Pilsener Haus and Biergarten in uptown Hoboken (see event link for specific details).

Mile Square Connect

What’s Mile Square Connect, you ask? This event is all about bringing people together for a good time, spotlighting an amazing local non-profit, and sharing a bit more about who we are.

And check this out: We’ll buy your first drink and provide the food. So what’s stopping you? Come out and #getconnected.

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. As we work together to build a grass-roots Christian community we will study God’s Word, build friendships, and participate in community outreach. 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?

As a community, we need to lean on one another. Our hope is that Mile Square Church will be a spiritual home and resting place for you. We commit to helping you grow in your faith as a disciple of Jesus, being there for you through thick and thin, and praying for you however we can.

What will be expected of me?

God has given each of us various talents, assets, and abilities along with a circle of influence within which are friends, family members, and co-workers. Did you know that you could use those gifts and connections to change someone’s life? 

So are you interested? Click the button below and we’ll talk soon!

What if I belong to another church?

We would say that we are a “kingdom-minded” church, which is to say we aren’t in competition with other Christian churches. Fact is, different churches reach different people and new churches reach new people.

However, we want to ask you to do two things: 1) Pray for us and how God is leading you to support the mission and 2) ask God if he wants you to join our team for a season. This is a tremendous opportunity to grow in your faith, and we hope you consider it.

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?
