Café Connections started with a dream nearly 25 years ago with this simple question, “If money were no object, what would you love to do more than anything in the world?” For us, the answer to that question was to run and operate a coffeehouse type ministry where we could demonstrate God’s love to our community by serving them with simple kindness and hospitality. For over 20 years now, we have been in “training” for this very day. We love people and we love serving. Our prayer is that Jesus be glorified in every word that is uttered and every kindness that is shown.
Café Connections is a place where family and friends gather and where relationships are built. We encourage those that live and work within the community to come and bring their lunch, surf the net, read a book, or engage in conversation. As a community, let’s reconnect over some coffee and a homemade dessert!
In Isaiah 50:4 it says, “The Lord God has given me the tongue of those who are instructed to know how to sustain the weary with a word….” We all need to be encouraged as we walk the path that has been placed before us. Will you let us encourage you? We look forward with great joy to reconnecting with old friends and making some new friends along the way. God Bless You!

Ten percent of all proceeds received thru the ministry of Get Up & Go Ministries/Cafe Connections is set aside to help other evangelical ministries intent on sharing the Gospel locally, nationally and internationally.
The 1st quarter of 2016, we were able to help provide counseling services, provided funds for the S.H.I.N.E. Soup Kitchen, The Pickens County Dream Center, Dusty Feet Missionaries in LA, provided sponsorships for 2 volunteer missionaries to Jordan & China, provided help for a single mom, provided funds for a pastor in the Philippines and provided towards a scholarship for a Liberty High School student in memory of Vance Bailey. Over $3,220 this quarter was donated thru our Seed Project Fund, because of your generosity!
Gift Cards to WM, Sam's, BiLo's or Ingles - Gift cards help me to be able to purchase supplies as I need them. Unfortunately, we had to throw out a lot of cake mixes b/c they had expired. Gift cards will eliminate that waste.
Toilet Paper (Again, we are stocking up for the Azalea Fest)
Unsalted, Stick Butter - not the fake stuff
If you, your church, your friends or your business discards their old, empty ink/toner cartridges, PLEASE tell them that you will take them and ask them to save them for you. These "empties" help us purchase office supplies for little to no cost.
