Table Grace Ministries
Table Grace Ministries fosters healthy community by offering great food prepared and served with dignity and providing opportunities for transformation both personally and spiritually through hospitality, music and fellowship. Table Grace Café, Omaha’s premiere donation based café (founded in 2011), is host to the Ministry’s integrated programming. The Café serves lunch Monday through Saturday in downtown Omaha. Our vision is "Nourishing hungry bodies and souls." Table Grace values hospitality, compassion, respect, transformation, creativity, dignity, community, wellness and empowerment. Table Grace lives its mission through the Café, 10 day Job Experience Program, Music Ministry in the café and throughout the community, Mobile Grace Food Truck, Catering and Fellowship. Volunteer opportunities and a 10 day-Job Experience program assist people in re-entering the work force. A majority of the staff who carry out the operations of the food truck, café and catering operations are people who have come up through the ranks at Table Grace, either originally entering our doors as a homeless patron, 10 day Job Experience participant or court-appointed volunteer. Music Ministry connects people across seemingly divisive lines. Music in the café and throughout the community offers a natural place for people to offer something of themselves for the greater good. Simone Weber and The Table Grace Band offer music at the café once a month, and often are on site with Mobile Grace Café, as well as offering outreach at events throughout the community. New in 2019 was the launch of Table Grace the Musical (a stage reading enlisting 20 local actors, musicians and singers), as well as our community choir “Voices of Dignity” (comprised of 25 local singers). Catering operations allows Table Grace to bring awareness of its Mission to a variety of locations all over the Omaha Metro area. Catering also offers the mission revenue sustainability. Mobile Grace Food Truck is an asset to the community and the Mission of Table Grace serving in high need locations like the Twin Towers on Park Avenue and the Stephen Center, and balancing that with generous locations like Millard Business Association, Silver Stone Group, Immanuel, Churches, and Colleges.
