Liquid Church Hosts Public Grand Opening for Non-Profit ‘Clean Water Cafe’


PARSIPPANY, NJ – Liquid Church, one of New Jersey’s fastest-growing Christian churches, has announced the public Grand Opening of a new not-for-profit and one-of-a-kind coffee shop in Parsippany, New Jersey called the Clean Water Cafe. The new cafe will open on Monday, October 3rd and is located just inside the church’s Morris County Campus at 299 Webro Road. In addition to serving up breakfast, lunch and specialty coffee and tea creations, the Clean Water Cafe will champion a unique purpose, supporting two causes that Liquid Church is passionate about: Providing supportive employment for all adults, including those with special needs, and using all proceeds to provide clean water to families in Central America and Africa.

“At the Clean Water Cafe, we believe that people with special needs such as autism spectrum disorder, down syndrome and ADHD can change the world for good! As customers at the Clean Water Cafe enjoy their favorite coffee, they will be providing hope and purpose to differently abled friends through the joy of meaningful employment.” said Pastor Tim Lucas, Lead Pastor of Liquid Church. 

“With over 80% of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities unemployed, our goal is that the Clean Water Cafe will help create meaningful employment for all adults, and a pathway to acceptance, inclusion, and appreciation in the workplace.” said Sarah Nilsen, Clean Water Cafe Director.

At the Clean Water Cafe’s Grand Opening celebration on Monday, October 3rd, the public is invited to come celebrate with free samples of specialty coffee drinks, an iced coffee bar, and breakfast bites from 8:00 – 9:30am, plus enjoy a custom photo booth. The celebration will culminate in a ribbon-cutting ceremony from 9:00-9:30am. The Grand Opening celebration is free and guests are encouraged to RSVP at CleanWaterCafe.com

As a not-for-profit, all purchases at the Clean Water Cafe will help provide safe, clean drinking water to thirsty children and families-in-need in Africa and Central America.

“Access to clean water has the ability to transform lives and elevate the health of the world’s most vulnerable families. For 15 years Liquid Church has been committed to the Clean Water Cause, completing more than 350 clean water well projects, bringing safe drinking water to over 130,000 people in 9 nations!” said Lucas. “Profits from the new Clean Water Cafe will further this mission, helping us build new wells and expand access to clean drinking water for thousands of people across the globe.”

The new Clean Water Cafe will be open Monday through Thursday weekly from 8:00am – 2:00pm at 299 Webro Road in Parsippany. In addition to a range of coffee options, tea, baked goods, fruit and salads, the Clean Water Cafe has partnered with Chick-Fil-A on Route 10 in Morris Plains, New Jersey, to offer a variety of signature Chick-Fil-A lunch options, such as the classic chicken sandwich, chilled grilled chicken sub sandwich, salads, and more. 

The large, modern coffeehouse includes seating capacity for 118 guests, cozy couches, a large community table with built-in outlets for charging laptops, plus free wifi and plenty of room to gather with groups.
