Café 6:8 – Object Lesson in Justice and Mercy

You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.

God wants us to pass His ways on to others.

We believers are to make disciples, especially among our children. This is one of the most clear callings in Scripture.

A teaching moment at Cafe 6:8

How does Café 6:8 relate?

Christ Community Chapel’s recently re-opened Café is designed for believers to better grasp God’s Micah 6:8 mandate to do justice, love mercy and walk humbly before our God.  Each quarter, the Café features three CCC ministry partners, both local and global, and offers the chance to financially support them through the Café’s profits.

The Café is designed to boost our awareness of the missions of these ministries. Posters inform patrons of the goals and callings of the featured ministries, and each purchaser of Café goods receives a token. After informing themselves of the ministries featured, patrons can choose to support one of those ministries by putting the token in the container for that ministry. At the end of the quarter, Café profits will go to the featured ministries proportionate to the tokens per ministry.

Cafe 6:8 is designed to build awareness of justice & mercy ministries

So, Café 6:8 encourages believers to consider everyday spending decisions in terms of also supporting the work of God’s kingdom. It also ensures that CCC members and friends are better informed about the church’s ministry partners, and opportunities to pray, give and go (serve) through those partners. 

In short, Café 6:8 is an object lesson for this year’s theme of Why Not Me?  It presents us with opportunities to make ourselves available to actively engage with CCC’s justice and mercy partners.

But wait…there’s more!

CCC members & friends at the Resource Center

The perfect complement to Café 6:8 is the newly re-opened and refurbished Resource Center.  The Center offers a wide range of books and other materials to help believers better know Christ, grow in Him and serve Him.

Thanks for your support.

Patrons at the Cafe 6:8 Grand Re-opening

The weekend of January 24/25th saw a great turnout of patrons both for Café 6:8 and the Resource Center. We encourage you to keep up your support for your personal growth, and for the spiritual formation of your loved ones.  May we all continue to ask, Why Not Me?  And, to make ourselves available to serve.
