St. Joe’s Coffeehouse Pouring In TONIGHT

Chris Dunn would like to invite you to an afternoon St. Joe’s Open Mic Coffeehouse to benefit the St. Joe’s evening meal that happens at St. Joe's Open Mic Coffeehouse Taking Place Sunday In Rock IslandRock Island Township Hall. Because we ended up playing in the dark on September 10th, it was suggested to move the coffeehouse to a weekend afternoon. Mark your calendars for Sunday, October 17th, from 3 – 5 p.m..

The September 10th St. Joe’s coffeehouse was well-attended by two-leggeds, four-leggeds, and feathered creatures. We were blessed to have new faces and voices, as well as “the regulars” in attendance. So many expressed the joy at being able to make music together again.

We will gather in the back patio and backyard area. There will be a fire in the fire pit and skewers available for roasting marshmallows, sausages, etc. Some seating will be available, but you are welcome to bring your own seating and blankets. Regular and decaf coffee will be provided; if you bring snacks to share, please individually wrap them. The Parish House will be open for bathroom use, but please follow CDC guidelines for mask wearing and physical distancing in and out of the building. The State of Illinois currently requires wearing a mask indoors for both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals.

Some parking is available near the First Lutheran Parish House and additional parking is available in the First Lutheran Church parking lot.

When: Sunday, October 17, from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Where: The First Lutheran Parish House (outdoors near the fire pit/ the back patio area of the Parish House)
