The gifts that God has given us are never just for our use and satisfaction. All things ultimately work together for the good of those who serve the Lord and when we submit to His will and call he will make space for our gifts to be used for the kingdom.Sometimes, we are not fully aware of or have confidence in our abilities to operate in our gifts. Here at Uncommon Grounds Cafe, we have been blessed with this space to be able to walk with people from "isolation to community" and discover their God given gifts in the process. One of the ways we do this is by offering people opportunities to walk along side of us as we do our work. Volunteers literally help keep the cafe running and are an integral piece of our puzzle.
From cooking in the kitchen and running the register to doing street clean ups to working in our garden to being available to just "listen" to patrons, our volunteers "get to" partner with us in ministry and explore their gifts and talents in a safe and loving environment that is rooted in grace. God not only gives us the grace to succeed but also the grace to fail. Uncommon Grounds Cafe is the perfect place to practice "getting it right". We are currently looking for people to partner with us and volunteer!!! With the summer months ahead, we are getting busier and busier and we need help. We are looking for people who have a desire to serve in a fresh, friendly environment. Is this you? If so, please contact me (Andrenna) at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to meeting and serving with you!!!
