Woven into the fabric of the community

There are a lot of churches with a coffee shop. Who doesn’t like grabbing a latte and heading into the sanctuary, worship center or auditorium for worship and a message?

Well, frankly, a lot. Some people will never feel comfortable going into a church. So, rather than making church more like society, Pastor Shari had the vision of weaving Tapestry Vineyard Church into the fabric of the Elko New Market community by locating it within a coffee shop.

After much anticipation, Firefly Coffee Co. opened for business on March 14, 2018. Rick and Shari personally own and operate the coffee shop separately from Tapestry Vineyard Church. It has become a missional outpost for Tapestry as Shari and her team of baristas extend the love of Christ through hospitality and prayer all week long, reaching people who may never step foot into a church.
