For these once-a-month evenings, the church social hall morphs into a ’60s-era coffee house with candles, a cluster of small tables, fresh baked goods, hot and cold beverages, live music, and great conversation on topics raised by those in attendance. This will be the last meeting for this group until fall, when the Café will again open its doors.
