    This is a great offering but many faith communities have regular meetings and suppers on Wednesday nights. I knowits hard to find a time that fits all but as a faith community lerader, that’s my feedback 🙂

      Thank you for your feedback- we recognize many have commitments on wed night- that is why we are meeting at 5:30pm to 6:30pm to hopefully be able to accommodate people and the availability of room space here at the YWCA. We hope you can attend.
      Best wishes
