As we close out this chapter of Jericho Coffee, we first off, need to say thank you to the many friends and family who helped with the hours of dia-assemblying, packing, storing, cleaning, sign removal (Dennis Fussell… can’t thank you enough… big job!), loading and unloading and fitting it all into a 10 x 20 foot storage space… what is and was the workings and mechanics of Jericho.
The real life of Jericho will always be in the people who came through the door whether it be customers, friends, family, or members of the Jericho team, it is the people that came that brought Jericho to life and they will be the biggest part of the story. This was just the first chapter and we know that God has a bigger plan… there strongis/strong more to come. Even though we have no clue as to what that will be or what form it will take, Jericho will live on.
Hands and Feet… hearts and souls that went into our final page for this chapter:
Jerry Scott, Dave Toth, Marina Smith, Dan Custodio, Elaine amp; Pete Gazzolo, Dennis Fussell, Dick amp; Betty Shave (Gram amp; PaPa), sons Nathan amp; Jared Harmon, Jess Bley, Linda Fitzgerald, son James Woods, Deb amp; Mike Haag, Kevin Freymeyer, Skip Donelson, John Freeman, James Croci and fiance Laurie, John amp; Jinny Wickeraad and Tina, Miss Laura Davis who was one of the first on our team, Chris amp; Gary McAnally, Chuck Nielsen, Eric Euren, and Mike McCartney (the blister). ~Sheri amp; Franc Woods
We can’t thank you enough. I didn’t think we could get it all done in one day, but you made it happen! Wow!
As to what’s next, we’re keeping our hearts still for a bit and try and discern what God has planned. Time to rest and heal, time to shed a tear or two, then it will be time to move on.
Thanks to ALL our customers, now new friends, who supported us through the years with prayers and their patronage. We love each and every one of you and appreciate your continued prayers as we seek out God’s will for the next chapter.
Your Humble Servants in Christ

Jericho Coffee finale – finish with friends and family!
Last chance to get your Jericho Dark Mocha, Mt. Caramel or Mexican Mocha.

We will miss all the friends we made but know that you are still nearby and our paths will cross again.

We know that the spirit of Jericho will live on – tearing down walls and building relationships.
Blessings to you all,
Franc & Sheri… and the Jericho Team

Jericho Coffee… a place to relax, enjoy great coffee, and where ministry happens every day.
Jericho is at a major, critical turning point and is looking for your input. We are struggling to pay the rent the bank is looking for, struggling to pay our excellent team family, and trying to service our debt that helped get the dream started.
If you are a Jericho fan, help us out with your input to help keep the dream alive. What do you think should be our next step?

We know the economy is bad and people are cutting back with the rise in gas prices. We know that the political climate doesn’t hold much hope for a turnaround… probably for years after the election, but we are faithful that the vision God gave us can continue. It might not be “here”, but somewhere else, it might not be “us”, but with new owners or more people involved, or it might be an end… which can lead to whole new beginnings and challenges!
We put our trust in Him who we serve and all of you who are His hands and feet.
Your patronage is appreciated and your prayers VERY welcome.
Sheri, Franc, and the Jericho Family

Sounds like either a line from “Where’s Waldo” or a local car dealer trying to make the best of a bad location. Jericho does have a tucked away location that is easy to spot… sort-of, across from the Safeway at Douglas and Sierra College, and your first visit is a little tricky to find the right drive-way, and we’re a bit above street level so you might miss us if you’re flying by on your way to work… but, once you find us, the rewards will be well worth the search. Comfy, warm, friendly, exceptional espresso and coffee drinks, a variety of pastries, lunch items to keep you coming back for more. And, if you need a gift, card, or book, well… while you’re enjoying the fare just wander and see what treasures are available for your special giving or your own self indulgence.
So, now with the move to our new website, Sheri and I will work on keeping you up to date through our front page news! Jericho news and other community events of interest. MOSTLY coffee, music, and books… our favorite past-times… but don’t be surprised if you find those personal prayer requests and pleas for local support where needed listed here as well.
Jericho has several new ‘sipping vessels’ in stock. Our newest to the lineup is an Offero mug and is getting rave reviews. Offero means to bring forth or present before and this unique mug does just that. It has a unique shape that allows the ‘nose’ of your beverage to come forth and give you the total aroma therapy needed to get your day started or ended for that matter. Come in today and pick up one for yourself and a few extras for a unique and special gift. This is the perfect gift paired with a pound of our Fox Hollow micro roasted beans.
from Kim Knifong:
“What CANCER cannot do: Cancer is so limited. It cannot cripple love, it cannot alter hope. It cannot corrode faith, it cannot destroy peace, it cannot kill friendship, it cannot suppress memories, it cannot silence courage, it cannot invade the soul. It cannot steal eternal life, it cannot conquer the spirit.”
Everyone… be sure to stop by Saturday, March 20th. Event Link…
Are we depressed yet? It is difficult to stay positive with all the political shuffling, economic turmoil, h1n1, busted governments, health-care issues, layoffs, downsizing, re-sizing, bankruptcies, foreclosures, furloughs, and people flaming other people. It’s a wonder that God hasn’t decided to shake the board, wipe the etch-a-sketch clean and start over. But lucky for us, we have a God that is bigger than the biggest bail-out. He holds the key. In fact He holds all the keys and we just need to grab hold and not let go. His keys, His grace, His faith in us will spill into our hearts and allow us to SEE what we need to do to get out of this mess. We can’t do it by letting others fix it for us. We need to let God work through us and to use us to get the job done. If we don’t, our natural inclination – do nothing and wait it out – will have us spiraling down into a mire of further discontent and government controlled lives.
We, at the individual, corporate, and government levels, need to be accountable for our mistakes, take on the natural consequences of our actions, and start again. This time with a little less greed and a little more (much more) compassion and generosity for others.
It is never to late to turnaround, shake it up, and start again!
