Stacy and Joe Thomas have a heart yearning to help the local people in Shippensburg and Newburg area through a non-profit Coffeehouse and Family Gathering Place. A small group shares the same heart yearning too. We need your help. As you know it takes time and money. We are asking for your kindness to be a part of this.
We are going to call the non-profit Coffeehouse and Family Gathering Place The Local Gathering Church of the Nazarene. It is a place Where Faith and Friends Collide with Love, Helping People be People with Coffee and Conversation... Helping Families be Families with Love and Compassion. The Local Gathering is a non-profit Coffeehouse and Family Gathering Place for the community to come together in a wonderful atmosphere of people; acoustic music; poetry; drama; artistry shows and stand-up comedy; books, flowers, treats; children adventures, games, and the aroma of coffee and treats.
We are located on 4.5 acres of wonderful cut grass grounds at 611 Shippensburg Rd. Shippensburg PA 17257 (Rt. 696 North four miles from Shippensburg heading on the Newburg Rd; South Rt. 696 two miles from Newburg on the Shippensburg Rd). The area contains a pavilion for cookouts; 3,000 sq. ft. building and a children swing. We have fire rings for campfire fun with s’mores and mountain pies and a community vegetable garden. The upstairs has been remodeled to look like a Coffeehouse. The possibilities are endless for families; children; singles; seniors; and for the community and beyond.
The Local Gathering will give the people a place to come and have community in a safe and warm environment.
The Coffeehouse and Family Gathering Place is The Local Gathering Church of the Nazarene Where Faith and Friends Collide with Love, Helping People be People with Coffee and Conversation…Helping Families be Families with Love and Compassion.
