juarez mission tripJuarez Mission Trip

October 17-20, 2018



The annual PCN Juarez trip is scheduled for October 17th-20th.  Experience four days with fellow PCN folks in a safe environment serving people that truly need and appreciate the help. Although the trip has a focus on building a house for a family with the help of a construction crew of locals, there are many other impactful activities including vacation Bible school activities after school, prayer walks, singing at a church and cooking dinner for more than 100 people, and even other service projects at a nearby orphanage.  The team is kept safe by Missions Ministries, the organization that recruits USA-based teams to travel to Juarez.


Interested in going on the Mission Trip?  Contact Regina Rus at reginabrus@gmail.com.

Become a Member Today 



Presbyterian Women nurture their faith through prayer and Bible study, support missions of the church worldwide, and build an inclusive, caring community of women.


Are you a woman in the Presbyterian Church of Novato (PCN)? Are you interested in supporting local and worldwide missions, a monthly Bible study, and being part of a group of caring and fun women? Consider becoming an active

member of the Presbyterian Women (PW) of PCN!


We currently have two active PW circles at PCN that will begin meeting monthly again in the Christensen Room following a summer break: the Ruth Circle (usually meets the 4th Tuesday at 2:00 p.m.) and the Rachel Circle (usually meets the 4th Wednesday of the month at 6:00 p.m.). The Bible study at these meetings will all be presented via a video narrated by the author of the study book, which provides a very rich and meaningful study of each lesson. We will also be sponsoring a luncheon meeting on Saturday, September 15, which is open to any woman (invite a friend) and allows time for those in attendance to meet each other for worship and fellowship.

Sunday Bible Studybible study image

"God Calls Us into Covenant"



On Sunday mornings at 9:00 a.m. the adult Bible study class meets in Room 1 (library), at the end of the breezeway. We have fifteen adults (men and women) registered and average between ten and twelve in attendance.


We have a lively Bible Study! That's what happens here. As adults study the Bible and discuss what they found during the week, they gain growing understanding of how to move forward on their discipleship journey. In the class, we read the Scripture and then focus on the passage. Each week we’re challenged to prepare for the next week's lesson. The preparation isn't long or difficult, but it does encourage participation. When adults have invested something of themselves in the lesson, they get more out of it. The biggest part of the Sunday school lesson doesn't happen in class. It happens on Monday and Tuesday – and through the week – when instead of following their own desires or the crowd, they dare to say, "No, I will follow Jesus."
