Love Jesus. Love like Jesus. Help others do the same.
Here at Lakeside, our mission is simple. We want to strive in everything we do to love Jesus, model our lives after His teachings, and share His love with others. So how does something like coffee fit into a mission like that? You see, we initially began serving coffee simply as an act of hospitality, a way to tangibly show love to those who came through our doors on Sunday morning. But we wanted something more. We felt that with the right partnership, our coffee dollars could champion both hospitality and mission - not one at the expense of the other.
So through a revamped partnership with a global missionary, our Lakeside coffee is now part of Gospel-focused Kingdom work! We proudly serve high quality, organic, shade-grown, Arabica coffee from Kingdom Bean Coffee Roastery based out of Louisville, KY.
Kingdom Bean Coffee Roastery sources the highest quality green coffee beans from mission works around the world who are having a significant impact among unreached people in adverse circumstances.
For example, impoverished farmers in Southeast Asia who once grew opium to get by have been taught to grow coffee - leading to sustainable income - and have been exposed to the Gospel through the work of our partners involved with Kingdom Bean Coffee Roastery.
The next time that you drink a cup of coffee at Lakeside - on a Thursday night, Sunday morning, or throughout the week when at one of our campuses - know that you are helping further our mission as a church as we support the work that Kingdom Bean Coffee Roastery is doing around the world!
