Interested in volunteering in The Grounds? That’s great! The Grounds is so much more than just a bookstore or coffee shop. On the weekends it’s a high-energy, fast-paced hub for community, conversation and connection. During the week, it’s the perfect retreat spot to get together with a friend or spend some much needed “you time.” And while The Grounds may have coffee in its veins, it has missions in its heart. All of our proceeds support Meck’s local and global missions’ efforts as well as the ministries of the church. So if you love people, books, or caffeine, The Grounds has a role suited for your uniqueness.
