Church Coffee Bar? Yes Please!

I LOVE coffee… (Hence the blog name ~ CoffeeandKnits~)  There's nothing better than a good cup of coffee, with a little milk, and some Splenda…  To add to my excitement about my favorite beverage, I've recently  learned coffee is also good for you!  It's full of antioxidants, and helps lower blood sugar.  A good thing for us diabetics… (of course the coffee is supposed to be de-caf to help lower blood glucose, but if I wanted to drink de-caf, I'd just drink dirt…)

If you find you actually would like to drink dirt, you can find dirt tea at www.earthdrinker.com… PLEASE drop me a line after you've tried it.  I'd like to interview you for my blog…


I was flipping through a "churchy" magazine one  Sunday when our family was assigned to nursery duty. 

(Please note: I do not recommend reading a magazine while on nursery duty, but there was one baby that day… and J. pretty much had it covered.  The baby's therapy bill has already been paid…)

The magazine talked about churches and outreach, creative things to do with the building, etc… It also talked about churches going beyond the regular coffee thermos, and having an all out Starbucks style coffee shop inside the church!!  I WANT TO DO THIS! 

How do I get started?  I am in the beginning stages of figuring all of this out… I have yet to approach the session (a thought that terrifies me…) We are renovating an old school as our new church building…where do we put a coffee stand?   I don't know if we should charge, or accept donations?  I think the donations or charges should benefit Hope House, missions, and youth group.  How do I convey that to church leaders?  Mixed coffee drinks or just different coffee flavors?  Should we have cookies/donuts/ other breakfast-y foods?  I have no idea how to run a coffee stand, what does it entail?…

I DO know that this seems like a good idea.  I DO know I feel led to be a big part of it…. and I DO know how to make a good cup of coffee, can follow a recipe to a T, and make mean chocolate chip cookies…After that, I'm kind of lost.  Any input or advice on how to proceed with my crazy idea would be appreciated… Leave me a comment, and let me know what you think!
