Coffee shops in churches have been rising in popularity for years, especially among the upcoming generation. When you introduce a comfortable environment for members of all ages to grow together as a congregation and reach out to the community, you help to inspire even more meaningful conversations in your own church lobby. If you’ve ever thought about creating a fun, personal setting for the members of your church to connect, adding a coffee bar to your church’s welcome center may be the perfect solution!
Coffee Shops as a First Time Guest Welcome Center
Imagine visiting a new church and being greeted with a warm smile and cup of coffee. Comfort and inclusion meet you at the front door. A custom coffee shop in a church lobby creates this warm and welcoming environment for each new guest and church member before they’ve even attended a service. First impressions are important, and making your first time guests feel comfortable is the best way to ensure they feel like they’re already a part of the church. Adding a coffee bar to your lobby’s welcome center is a great way to instantly get guests and community members talking with other members and non-members of the church, forming an important and instant connection.
Welcome Members of Your Church and Connect Over Coffee
Many members may never have the time to meet and mingle outside of services, or may never see one another in a space personal enough to truly connect. By introducing a cafe to your church lobby or welcome center where members can converse while sipping coffee, you can create that much-needed place for your congregation and community whether it’s before services or throughout the week. You can even open your church cafe doors to the members and non-members in the community all week long during business hours! In our daily work and social lives, coffee is known for inviting deep and memorable conversations. That comfortable familiarity is easy to bring into your own church for your members and community with a custom coffee shop!
When your members connect, your church and community grow stronger. A new or updated church cafe is the perfect space for new or returning guests to get to know one another outside of services, and a great way to reach members of the community throughout the week! A custom coffee bar ensures that each person feels comfortable and connected, whether they’re a weekly member or a first-time invitee. Each time a guest walks through the doors, make sure they know that they’re valued by giving them the space to meet new people, have meaningful conversations with their growing church family, and get involved in the community!
