"Calling All Prophets"


The Sunday Adult Bible Study Class meets every Sunday in the Church Library at 8:30 A.M. to 9:30 A.M. (Summer schedule time). We would be delighted to have each of you join for great discussions and delightful fellowship.


We will be looking in July at how God called various prophets, such as Moses, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and Amos, at different times for specific purposes.  In August, we’ll be studying how God continued to call and work through ordinary people in the early church, including Stephen, Peter, Philip, Ananias, and Paul.

Where or who do you go to when you look for direction and purpose in your life? How do you know that God is calling you to His purpose? What feelings of inadequacy could you have when God calls you?

God's calling and sending is never about what we are able to do through our strengths or weaknesses, our confidence or insecurities. God's call is about His will, power, plan and purposes to glorify Himself and bring others to Him.

Trip to the Holy Land

March 2018


PCN has recently approved Pastor Kent Webber to lead a 2-week+ trip to Israel in partnership with JUC as part of our Pastor-Parishoner Program. Why consider such travel under the auspices of Jerusalem University College rather than with a “regular” tour company with an informed tour guide? This is a more academic approach with the instructor speaking about the geographic and archeological significance of specific sites. JUC instructors will take us to archeological rather than pilgrimage sites. It is more about learning and less about tourism. Pilgrimage sites may have little or no historical foundation, whereas archeological sites show evidence that human occupation took place there in support of the biblical narrative. A second difference is that our tour “instructor” from JUC will be a Ph.D. or at minimum at Ph.D. candidate in biblical studies, i.e. a scriptural scholar. Though we are not likely to spend much time in a JUC classroom, the campus is located on Mt. Zion near the first-century Essene Gate into the Holy City! An additional difference between traveling with JUC vs. a tour company is that JUC’s accommodations, though clean and comfortable are not luxurious.


Our plan is to depart on or about Sunday, March 11 and return on or about Sunday March 25 (Palm/Passion Sunday). The cost of the trip, including airfare will be approximately $4,500. If you want to add a 3-day extension and tour sites in neighboring Jordan, the cost will be approximately $5,500. Those staying for the added time in Jordan would fly home on Tuesday March 27. These approximate costs include everything but personal expenses, gifts, special excursions (on free days) and a few meals.
