City officials ordered a small home Bible study group in Southern California to either stop meeting or obtain a permit.
The home Bible group in Rancho Cucamonga must have a Conditional Use Permit by Good Friday, April 2, in order to continue gathering. The Bible study group was referred to as a “church” in a letter sent by the city. All churches are required to obtain a CUP in residential areas, it stated.
City officials explained on Tuesday that a neighbor had filed a complaint in February that some 40 to 60 people were gathering each week at the home.
