WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Some members of Southside Baptist Church are hoping to perk people up about Christianity by opening a new coffee shop.

They are opening the coffee shop in effort to connect with people in the community without a typical church setting.

The coffee shop will be located in the Monkey Junction area between Georgio's and Blockbuster.

Construction is expect to begin soon.  Members say it is set to open in late February or early March.
