This weekend Silk City Coffee will open on Main Street in Manchester! This unique coffee shop was born of a vision shared by Rob May (Class of 2011), Sarah Loftus May (Class of 2011) and Glenn and Tammy Gerhard (CCS Parents / CCS Guidance Counselor). It was through Cornerstone that Rob & Sarah first met Mrs. Gerhard, and then the rest of her family. As "Mrs. G" led Sarah & Rob through the high school leadership program, she became invested in their lives. Later, after they graduated and married, they shared their passion for coffee and for people with the Gerhard family. Together, they heard God calling them to this unique business and ministry opportunity.
Their hearts for the people of Manchester -and for good coffee - can be seen in the Silk City Coffee mission statement.
