Our Story

In 2001, Church Army officer John Stanley, arranged for the purchase of an old Franklin Avenue storefront in Aliquippa to establish a coffee shop downtown as a Center of Ministry for CAUSA to serve the needs of the local community. Now, a fully functional café and coffee shop stands in what used to be just another run-down building. In the 20+ years since our founding, Uncommon Grounds has become a center of resources, care, and family pillar within Aliquippa’s community. Everyone knows about the little Cafe on the Ave.

We are an intentional community of believers who recognize that God has blessed us with each other and desires for us to work together to reach our goals. We seek to reach our community, teach our community and equip the local church to receive our community.
