Historic Fire Station 17 at the corner of Ralph David Abernathy Blvd and Cascade Avenue will soon house a West End neighbor-run coffee house. Please see the information directly from them:
People of the Way of Jesus will offer a COFFEE HOUSE as a community service. We are renting the old Firehouse #17 at 1384 Ralph David Abernathy, and will offer coffee (bold, medium and DCaf), tea, some wrapped pastries and WiFi on a DONATION basis.
At the present time, we will be open to the public on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 6pm to 9pm, so you can stop in for that quick cup on your way home, on Saturdays from 9am to 1pm for that relaxing weekend wakeup carefully and slowly cup and on Sundays from 9am to Noon for that “easy like Sunday morning” cup with your paper.
Our People of the Way Worship will still be held at 3pm on Sundays there, with our Agape Meal.
We also plan to offer FIRST FRIDAYS from 7 to 9pm, with Movie Nights, Spoken Word nights, live local musician nights and other activities.
We will not serve food, but you can pick some up and bring it in to enjoy (We recommend D’s Café down the street, Q Time, Soul Vegetarian, Bakari Pizza and other locally owned restaurants). We will not offer “to go” cups, but will be glad to fill your travel mug for you. It is all on a donation basis, and your donations will provide the rent, utilities, insurance, HVAC costs, WiFi and supplies to keep this going. We will not make profit on this, but will invest all donations into it, and expand it as those donations dictate ability to do so. It will be a community effort.
We will have our GRAND OPENING on Saturday, October 24th from 9am to 3pm, with a dedication ceremony at 11am. Rev. Jacqui and Pastor Jamie open our hearts and this coffee house to you!
If you have comfy chairs, area rugs, bookshelves or children’s chairs and tables, or children’s books you would like to donate toward this community service, or anyone who has a PowerPoint projector on which to show movies, that we can BORROW periodically… please contact Jamie at 404-353-0387.
