About Us

What Is The Journey Café?

The Journey Cafe was once an old automotive garage located near the center of the Borough of Hamburg.

But starting in 2003, the members of Zion’s Church (in the village of Windsor Castle) began totally renovating the building at 3rd. & Pine into a state-of-the-art community center. Completed in 2007, the Journey is now in its thirteenth school year. Since then, we’ve been primarily serving the youth of the Hamburg area as a place of hope and happiness in the Name of Jesus Christ. The Journey Cafe has become an important part of the fabric of the community of Hamburg.

Thanks & God bless you!

Our Goal

We want to create a safe and fun environment for middle/high school students. Here at the Journey Cafe, kids can come, hang out, make friends, and feel loved. We want young people to feel invited, involved, and connected.

We believe that each young person is a beloved creation of God and deserves to be respected, cared for, and heard. Any student is welcome in our building; we just want to help them out and let them know that we are here for them.

Our staff and volunteers are all committed to making sure that no one who walks through our doors feels unaccepted or alone. Jesus Christ sees and loves all, and we just want to communicate His love to anyone who needs hope.
