Our Cups Overflow with Love - For Coffee & For People!

October 17, 2016

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. 

Silk City Coffee is a specialty coffee shop that serves quality coffee and delicious food in a warm and inviting atmosphere. Silk City is a place where employees greet customers with a smile and take an interest in their lives. We designed a comfortable space where customers are loved and welcomed.

Silk City seeks to bless their community by bringing people together and empowering them to meet each others needs. We also plan to give back a portion of our proceeds to support programs that bring light and hope to our area.

We aim to do business with integrity to the glory of the God we love, who first loved us to even make this possible. Our greatest desire is that your time at Silk City Coffee leaves you feeling refreshed, encouraged and excited to return for another cup!
