Cafe' on Ryf

The mission of the cafe' is to make an impact locally and globally through meals hosted by different mission / ministry teams. Each week the donations in the cafe' go to benefit ministries locally and globally.

Who we are

The Cafe' on Ryf is located inside Community Church Ryf Road. The Cafe' has had many transitions over the years, beginning as a full-service cafe' and gradually becoming what it is today.  Cafe' on Ryf is a ministry of Community Church with a select focus each week.

What we do

The mission of the cafe' is to make an impact locally and globally through meals hosted by different mission / ministry teams. Each week the donations in the cafe' go to benefit ministries locally and globally.

We have had the joy of coming along side local ministries of Damascus Road, World Relief, Cherith International, Bella Medical Center and Day by Day Warming Shelter.  We also have teams within our church host in the cafe'. This is opportunity to bring awareness and raise money for their ministry. Community Church Blended Family Ministry, Mending Arrows (foster and adoptive ministry) and CSM (student ministry) have all served.

We have missionary emphasis weeks were donations make an additional impact in the lives of our missionaries serving around the world.  Our mission teams also provide meals that benefit the teams serving around the world during the year. You will see our Poland, Guyana, Haiti and Swaziland teams all serving on a given week.

Requests & Reports

Prayer Requests

  • That the cafe' would be able to continue making a difference while coming along side different ministries and organizations. We want our community to know we see them and want to help.
  • A greater awareness of the mission in the cafe'.
  • That Jesus would be held high. That He would be glorified through eating together and fellowship that happens in the cafe' each week.

Celebrations

Beginning in November, we now offer locally and globally made items. These items are made sustainably around the world. From right here in our community to Haiti, Africa and India! Every purchase directly impacts a family! 100% of the sale returns to that family - we keep zero profit. This past year we have also switched our coffee choice to a fair-trade coffee. What this means is even in drinking our favorite coffee we can impact the world for better, knowing that the source of that coffee is able to live on a fair wage. We now serve Colectivo Coffee, roasted right here in Milwaukee. You can also purchase this coffee at the market in the cafe'.

Specific Needs

VOLUNTEERS! The cafe' runs solely on volunteers.  We always need help!! We risk burn out for these who are donating time and resources every week. Many hands make light work. Every week the cafe' needs donations towards the meal being served. We can make the greatest impact when we have the lowest up-front costs. Then we can turn around and give 100% of profits away instead of covering the cost of food. The team serving for a given week is responsible for meal prep and costs.
