How Does the Stand Function?
- 2020 has brought growth in the stand as teens have been wanting to use the stand to reach outside the church.
- Gnome for the Holidays is the first event. Drinks or ingredients for a drink. They will be delivered by baristas with a caroling song.
- Kitchen ministry oversees the espresso stand. The machine was purchased Easter 2017.
- Teens serve between services reinforcing worship as a priority then fellowship.
- All workers are asked to get their food handler's permit.
- Qualities we look for are people who show the ability to follow leadership, respectfully serve the congregation, follow a calendar and enjoy working in the setting.
- People who grow in those qualities are seen as leaders and given more responsibilities.
- Once a teen graduates from high school they're asked to spend a year connecting with the college group before coming back in the stand.
- Working in the stand offers teens a chance to earn money, develop a service mindset and build a job resume.
- Drinks- $2+ suggested donation.
- Teens are given $10 for each service they work which goes towards their SWEAT account.
- A SWEAT account is opened for each teen through church and made available upon request to pay for approved youth events.
- Church ministries pay $2+ for each drink made from their budget line unless they choose to collect donations.
- The stand is open Sunday after both worship services and for special events, as needed.
- Congregants can ask if we can provide drinks for special events such as graduations, wedding rehearsal dinners or other events for an agreed cost.
- Staff are given permission to use the stand during the week, as they see needs.
- Ministries are encouraged to ask for the use of the stand to support their needs.
