We Are Grace House
Grace Coffee House is a joint ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta and the Southeastern Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). We proudly serve the Georgia Tech community in Atlanta, Georgia.
Grace Coffee House provides students with an opportunity for friendship, direction, an authentic community, service, and a home away from home.
It may seem on the surface that our welcome is just a cup of coffee but really, our welcome is hope. Hope is needed in a world that seems fraught with division and hope is needed in the lives of Georgia Tech students. Hope that they will see the other side of a looming midterm, hope that at some point a social life will return, hope that all this hard work is going to be worth it, hope that one day they might have time to sleep, or hope that there is someplace they can still go to get a free cup of coffee, a smile, and for someone to ask “how’s your week going?”. We want to live into that hope for students in all that we do.
Grace House is an Open and Affirming Christian organization, fully living into our Baptismal covenant, especially that part about Seeking to Serve Christ in ALL Persons, Loving our Neighbor as Ourself & Striving for Justice and Peace Among ALL People, and Respecting the Dignity of EVERY Human Being.
All Grace House Staff is Safe-Space trained and also trained on Bystander Intervention. We are also a Reconciled in Christ congregation. If at any time you do not feel respected, honored or loved in our home, we would love to talk to you about it and correct it.
