Grace Seed Coffee

Grace Seed Coffee

Change your cup. Change a life.

Grace City Church has a unique opportunity to help build schools in Haiti through Grace Seed, Inc. Bo Beck, a member of Grace City Church, is the founder and director of Grace Seed, which seeks to partner with local churches in developing countries to start small businesses and schools. Last summer, Bo traveled to Haiti and met a pastor with a vision to build several schools and was seeking help.

It is for opportunities just like this that Grace Seed was formed!

The Good Samaritan School of Fourrien needs $15,000 to become operational, fully equipped with desks and resources and to compensate the teachers for a year. In an effort to raise funds for the Good Samaritan School, Grace Seed has partnered with Singing Rooster, a nonprofit organization that grows and roasts Haitian coffee. Such partnerships create more opportunities for Grace Seed and Grace City Church to carry out the mission of Galatians 6:10 to “do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.” This great coffee will be available at Sunday Gatherings for Grace City’s Northeast congregation starting this Sunday. 12 oz bags of either whole bean or ground coffee are $10, and a bag a 10 k-cups is $12.

How you can get involved:

• Pray that God would use GCC to help invest in the next generation in Haiti.
• Buy a bag or two (or more) for yourself on an upcoming Sunday. You deserve it!
• Buy a bag or two for your friends, family, neighbors, or co-workers (or all of the above).
• Be willing to represent Grace Seed in your sphere of influence by selling the coffee as a fundraiser.
• Give financially to Grace Seed directly to help expedite this project.
• Be a part of the planning team to help start the schools.
• Travel with Bo on his next trip to Haiti.
