About Us

We are a non-profit coffee shop and church in Omaha's Old Market with a dedication to making a difference. Our mission is great coffee and quality foods to invite everyone to the table. Our mission is making space to serve our non-profit community through funds generated at the shop as well as through the interest generated by sharing stories and taking action to serve and connect. Our mission is to invite everyone in, whether they want to support through buying a latte or active service. We are space for modern worship, a home for conversation, and a place to get really good coffee for a really good cause!

Campus Ministry

We are a new kind of campus ministry – theologically expansive and queer inclusive – where faith has as much to do with practice as it does with belief. Questions are not just tolerated but expected as we seek to be authentic disciples together.

Community Partners

Each month we give 10% of our sales to a local non-profit partner. We have given over $52,000 from our coffee bar sales to make a difference right here in Omaha.

Fair Trade

We believe every dollar votes and we vote for fair wages. Every stone placed in a necklace and every thread woven through a scarf tells the story of workers around our globe. We invite you to stop in and be a part of the story.

We believe books invite reflection, challenge, courage, healing and new possibilities. We offer books for all ages and the space to pause, look and read a little while you choose the right one.
