UU Congregation at Montclair

Connection Cafe

Thanks so much for volunteering to host Connection Cafe at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation at Montclair (UUCM). Your service is advancing our collective mission. The mission of Connection Cafe is to provide a space where we gather to serve one another, nourish bodies and souls, connect to congregational life, and build the Beloved Community.

Connection Cafe nurtures us all in many ways: It provides a face-to-face opportunity to share and learn about congregational activities. It is also a great way to welcome new members and visitors and for members to mingle and catch up over a cup of hot brew. 

WHAT TO BRING:

  • A half-gallon of milk
  • A quart of coffee creamer
  • Refreshments for about 100 adults and 50-60 children*
    • Recommended: Some combination of carbs (breads, muffins, etc.) and fruit and/or veggies

BEVERAGES:

  • Coffee and Hot Water for tea are prepared either by Dawn Coleman, or the host. If you'd like to see how the coffee is made, visit (video to come soon).

SET-UP 

  • Set-up takes about 20 minutes and can usually be done prior to the end of the first serviceHowever, if also serving refreshments, it may take a bit longer.

The following items are provided by the UUCM and found in marked cabinets:

  • Small glasses placed on a tray for water.  
  • Glass mugs or disposable cups for coffee and tea placed on both ends of the refreshment table.
  • Labeled carafes for "regular" and "decaf" coffee, as well as for hot water. Pour the coffee into the appropriate carafe, as well as the hot water. These should be placed on the table. 
  • Tea bags/sweeteners/stirring sticks/utensils as needed

CLEAN-UP                                 

  • Clean up all mugs, cups, and any serving pieces used. Put away as much as you can after clean-up.
  • Dishwasher Instructions posted in kitchen and in link below.
  • Hand-wash any plastic or over-sized items.
  • Clean up counter tops and center-island.
  • Put used dishtowels and tablecloths in the large plastic container on the counter next to the refrigerator.
  • The coffee makers need to be cleaned. That task is sometimes handled by the hosts, unless there is additional support available. 

FAQs

  • What kind of milk should we bring?  You can bring any combination of milk or milk substitutes, such as soy or almond milk. Flavored creamers are also popular.   
  • What sorts of refreshments should we bring?  Generally, we aim for some combination of baked 'breakfast' goods, like bagels or coffee cake, sometimes with fruits/veggies. The good news is that others often show up with a refreshment to share.  Feel free to bake something, serve store-bought goods, or bring in something fresh from your garden---and be as fancy or simple as you like.  For food suggestions, see link provided below.
  • What should we do to help others learn about our group when we are hosting? This is a great opportunity to acquaint us with your committee or group’s activities. A sign saying that your group is hosting Connection Cafe is always good...but feel free to tell us more!

We need YOU and welcome your participation!
