Lifetree Cafés in Lancaster, PA

Lifetree Café is an hour-long experience packed with interesting stories, fascinating people, and lively conversation that will feed your soul. The main entrée at Lifetree Café is food for thought.

Lifetree Café has two locations that meet in our area--one in Lititz and one on Lincoln Highway. You are invited to attend any of the sessions as your schedule permits. Each week all of the locations across the country have the same theme. So if you miss one, you can show up at another site later that week. The week's topic runs from Sunday-Saturday.

At the General Sutter Inn in Lititz on Monday nights you can feel free to buy appetizers, meals or drinks during the conversation. At the Emmaus Road Cafe on Tuesdays snacks are provided. After the official session ends you are welcome to stick around and continue hanging out with the new folks you met.

We invite you to come enjoy a comfortable, safe place for discussion. Lifetree Café is a place to meet old friends and make new ones, to share your thoughts about compelling topics and hear the thoughts of others, and to discover ways to serve your community and your world. Sound good? Then Lifetree Café is your kind of place.

And if you would like to talk more during the week, or if you have any questions, feel free to contact any of the folks listed below who are helping to facilitate these discussion groups. You can also contact us if you are looking for a faith community to plug into. 

Our Motto is:
"You are welcome just as you are. Your thoughts are welcome; your doubts are welcome. We're all in this together. God is here, ready to connect with you in a fresh way."
