You could be on stage at the next Coffee House and Open Mic Night presented by Stony Hill Baptist Church in Wake Forest.
Local performers are welcome to join in during a night of live music, fellowship and coffee. It’s a family-friendly event, so every performance must be appropriate for children.
Open mic night isn’t limited to just music. Traditionally, open mic can also include poetry, literature readings and comedy.
In addition to the entertainment there is fellowship and coffee. And the coffee being served is actually roasted by Stony Hill Pastor Jeff Mayfield.

The event will be from 7:30 to 10 p.m. Friday, Aug. 19, at the Stony Hill Community House at 7453 Stony Hill Road in Wake Forest.
