After 18 years, we are pleased to announce that the FireEscape Coffeehouse will now be open to the general public. We will no longer be a coffeeshop that is only open on the weekends, but we are starting small by only opening two days a week. We will be open Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 6:30 AM to 10:30 AM. Come and meet up with friends for coffee, host a Bible study or business meeting, or just come and enjoy a cup by yourself. And I promise to spare you the painful coffee puns such as "Better latte than never" or "I know you've bean waiting for this" or even "Come and give alms for the pour" (actually, I thought that one was clever).
Keep in mind that we are still a non-profit, youth ministry. Our mission has been and will continue to be to influence the youth and college-aged students of the area. Rather than opening a business for profit, we are gifting our community with reasonably priced drinks and a place to meet with people. We are still a ministry in that we want to create an environment where conversations about Jesus can happen. So we encourage groups to come in and have Bible studies. We also want people to know what we do at the FireEscape. Being open to the public will give us a chance to get to the people in our community.
This is something we believe that the Lord wants us to do. We are confident that He will supply the resources and helpers to keep the doors open as long as He sees fit to do so. That being said, if you are interested in helping out, even for an hour or two, please call us at 620-431-5815 or email us at email@example.com.
