Grace Place Coffee Needs You!
Schedule Training Today! Contact Paul at graceplace@gracedowntown.org!

If you are looking for opportunities to serve at your congregation, consider service at Grace Place Coffee! You may have enjoyed the convenience of a beverage or snack between Bible study and worship on Sundays in the past, and we really need you more than ever!

To make a pleasant opportunity for those who have not served at the coffee shop in the past, we would like to allow you to serve at your own comfort level. You don’t need to have full knowledge of opening and closing procedures, working the register, or becoming a lead barista, but you can add to your skills—at your own pace, when you like. You might enjoy starting as a greeter and going from there!

Level I: Greeter (Introductory)

Great first step to getting involved at Grace! Bring your kids or a friend and show them how great it feels to get involved. Also a great option to socialize with all your fellow Grace members you haven’t met. Tasks include: Welcome and direct people at Grace Center and coffee shop; wipe tables down, fill creamers and other supplies, and learn how to brew and refill drip coffee urns.

Level II: Register (Intermediate)

Low pressure way to get involved and help take the load off of the lead barista. Also a great way to get used to the coffee shop if you’re interested in the barista role but want to work your way up to it. Tasks include: Learn to operate the register. We have an intuitive and rather simple program once you do a couple transactions! Help fill orders of bottled beverages and treats, and write simple directions for the barista to make specialty drinks.

Level III: Barista (Experienced)

Love coffee? We’ll make sure you get the training to make some amazing specialty coffee drinks. No previous experience required. Tasks include: Make hot and cold specialty drinks: steam milk, pull espresso shots, and follow posted recipes. Ability to operate opening and closing procedures a plus! Ideally, there would be at least one person at this level per time slot.

Ideally, we like to have three (3) people serving at a time, once a month, for one of four time slots:
8:15-10:20 a.m. (lead barista, with opening duties)
8:30-10:20 a.m. (cash register and back up barista)
9:45-10:45 a.m. (greeter)
10:15-12:30 p.m. (lead barista, with closing duties)

Interested? Want to start training? Contact Coffee Shop Manager Paul Demcak--either give him a call at 414-271-3006 weekdays during regular shop hours (9 a.m.-1 p.m.) or send him an email at graceplace@gracedowntown.org.

We are also looking to hire 2-3 people to serve as Assistant Managers in the Coffee Shop. These people would be paid for their work and would be expected to take on a greater responsibility and number of shifts than our volunteers. Please contact our Church Administrators with questions or to apply at admin@gracedowntown.org.
