Our Presbyterian Church of Novato Youth will be going to Minnesota this summer to serve the community of International Falls. This community was devastated when their largest employer moved out of town leaving many unemployed and with little funds to move to find other employment. Our teens will participate in construction, clean up, community outreach and provide a vacation bible school for children.

Sunday Bible Study
Psalms, John & Romans
We would be delighted to have each of you come to our Sunday Adult Education Class on Sunday morning. We begin at 9:00 A.M. and conclude at 10:00 A.M. We have an amazing time as we gather together to share what we have learned from the assigned lesson. Come and join the excitement of sharing God's Word with each other.
In the month of April we will study selections from Psalms, John, and Romans as the books that reveal God as protector, preserver, healer, comforter, and Savior of the people. The Easter lesson shows how in the Resurrection, God's love is displayed as victory over death. On April 2 and April 30 we will take a close look at Psalm 23.
Psalm 23 is the psalm of the Great Shepherd who cares for His sheep and equips them for ministry. Psalms focuses on what Jesus does for us "all the days of our life." In it, David deals with some of the most difficult things he experienced during his long walk with the Lord. While people of all ages love and quote this psalm, its message is for ma- ture Christians who have fought battles and carried burden.
Women's Bible Study
The Gospel of Luke
Classes are on Thursdays at 9:30 a.m.
The Thursday Morning Women's Bible Study meets every Thursday in the Christiansen Room at 9:30 A.M. We are studying The Book of Luke.
Luke and Theophilus shared two loves: a love for Christ and a love for facts. They didn't want legends: they wanted the truth. And so Dr. Luke begins to sort the truth and report the facts to Theophilus. With the skill of a surgeon, Luke probes for truth. Why? So his friend could know that what he had been taught was true.
There is a wonderful group of ladies that gather every Thursday to spend time in Luke's Gospel and to see and hear what Jesus' words mean to their life. We study Luke's Gospel a bit at a time.
June 4th from 8 a.m. - Noon
It's not too early to start pumping some iron.
