Gretchen and I were blessed to travel to Raleigh, NC last weekend to be a part of the life of Hope Cafe. Eric & Lisa Beavers serve at this church and it was wonderful to see how God is using this church to reach their community. The church facility is not a church building in the traditional sense. They have a store front property in the form of a coffee shop. Throughout the week Hope Cafe is open for business. They have open mic night on Friday evenings, concerts on Saturday evenings, and the church gathers on Sundays for singing, prayer, and teaching. Gretchen and I met many people in the church on Sunday and was a part of the young adult Bible Study that meets at Eric & Lisa’s home. I wrote in the last post about how much Consumed values relationships. I trust this is just the beginning of a long and beautiful relationship between Hope Cafe & Consumed Ministries. I pray the result of this relationship is seeing God’s Kingdom & will done on earth as it is in heaven.
I had the privilege of teaching a few times while we were there. You can find the link to one of those times on the HOPE CAFE PODCAST PAGE
