UPerk will be more than just a downtown coffee shop. It will be a community. It will be a place where all kinds of people will gather to study, to talk, to listen, and to figure out ways to make our city an even better place than it already is. Itâ€™ll be a not-for-profit enterprise that will seek partnerships with various agencies and initiatives here in town. It will be a place outrageous in its generosity and never-ending in its hospitality. Itâ€™d be the epicenter of movements seeking peace and justice for those in our neighborhood.
While we are related to a Christian congregation in town, we want to be very clear that all people are welcome here. We believe the life and ministry of Jesus centered around his loving everyone around him, and we will seek to do the same at UPerk. No matter what you may feel or what you may believe, please know that you are welcome here. No matter your faith background, you are welcome here. No matter your ideology or worldview, you are welcome here. No matter if youâ€™re a â€˜Jesus freak,â€™ a skeptic, a churchgoer, a church-hater, a doubter, a wanderer, you are welcome here.
