IECOC strives to create informative and engaging array of reoccurring programs weekly.
These classes are free* and open to all. (*except the Weekend Islamic Schools)
Most of our scheduled weekly programs are Non-Commitment programs, which mean that you do not have to attend the program on a regular basis. However, the Commitment programs ask for your attendance on a regular basis, so that you may benefit and follow along as the program progresses.
