Local church foots coffee bill at Eleos on Jan. 17

By Paul Thompson
Northeast News

LifeConnection Northeast church has pledged to pay for every cup of drip coffee ordered at Eleos Coffee House (3401 Independence Ave.) on Wednesday, January 17.

LifeConnection pastor Chris Seay will be at the coffee shop and available all day to talk to customers who take advantage of the offer. In addition to Seay’s presence, information regarding the Northeast Kansas City church will be placed near the front counter.

Eleos will be open until 2 p.m. on Jan. 17. In an email sent on Jan. 15, Seay encouraged everyone to spread the word about the generous offer. When asked what compelled LifeConnection to foot the coffee bill of Eleos customers on Jan. 17, Seay listed two main reasons.

“To connect with neighbors and let people know we’re in the neighborhood and want to serve them, and to give a visible demonstration of God’s free gift to us in Jesus Christ,” Seay said of his motivations.

LifeConnection Northeast (217 Benton Blvd.) is connected to a network of Baptist churches, but welcomes people of all backgrounds to attend services. To learn more about LifeConnection Northeast, email Chris Seay at chris@lifeconnectionkc.org, or call (816) 398-8070.
