Your First Coffee
So, how is Your First Coffee going then? The coffee servers in charge estimate they have served over 3,000 cups of coffee (including refills) since November 29. But they can’t even calculate how many smiles have been shared or how many stories have been told. Local, regional, and even world issues have been discussed. And discussed again. The treats alongside the coffee vary from week to week, no complaints have been heard. If you haven’t joined us yet, know that you are welcome:  9 to 11 a.m. each Wednesday morning at First Lutheran.
