Open House at Jillian’s Cafe on May 31st

Conshohocken United Methodist Church is holding an open house and grand opening for Jillian’s Cafe on Saturday, May 31st from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The cafe was created to provide a space for church members and the community at large to socialize and hold events.
