In 2005 The Highway Community purchased the Red Rock Coffee Co. in downtown Mountain View.
So, why would a church want to run a cafe?
We believe our calling as an organization is one of service, and we looked for a place where we could serve our community and share life in an organic way. All communities need 'third places'—places aside from work and home—where life can be lived out, wrestled with, celebrated, and enjoyed. Red Rock has become that third place for many Silicon Valley folks.
Our mission is not to make money or add to our church membership via the cafe. Rather, we long to serve Silicon Valley through Red Rock—to provide a space where art, music, conversation, business, and fantastic coffee flow easily and freely.
Revenue that doesn't flow directly back into RR (i.e. payroll, supplies, maintenance) goes to organizations like local women's shelters, clean water efforts in Africa, and directly supports the coffee farmers overseas that make it possible for us to do what we do.
The truth is, although we may keep the books and lock the place up at night, Red Rock belongs to the community, and we hope it stays that way for years to come.
