Inquirer’s Class

Tuesday, June 22 & 29 / 4:00 p.m. / via Zoom

During this pandemic our congregation has grown larger – in heart and in body. We have expanded our worshiping body beyond prior geographic limits. This summer, Pastor Susan is going to offer a two-session Inquirers’ Class. Are you interested in formally joining this congregation? Or are you simply curious about the La Verne Church of the Brethren, and would like to learn more? Consider joining Pastor Susan via Zoom on June 22 and 29 from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. The time is set at 4 to allow for time zone differences. If this time doesn’t work for you but you are interested, let Pastor Susan know so she can offer this class at a later time, as well. It would help her to know how many to expect. You can email her at to let her know you will be joining or to ask further questions.
