Café is a magazine for and with young adult women who want to build their faith.

Café incorporates a Lutheran perspective for young, adult women of Christian faith or simply for any woman who is interested in how faith relates to the issues that women face today. Readers and writers of Café include pastors, seminary and college students, and other young adult women who use Café as a Bible study resource individually or with their congregation. Pictured: The Young Women’s Bible Study at Clemson University. They read and discuss Café articles once a week.
