PCN Snack Sacks


Sunday Mornings




PCN piloted a three-month program in spring to provide bag lunches to people in our community through North Marin Community Services, and it was a mixed success. While we could have had more people come for a bag lunch, our congregation turned out with a positive attitude and willingness to do more. The Mission Committee talked about how addressing food insecurity could be a continued local mission project, and we found Downtown Streets Mobile Showers as our next project. While PCN has been involved with bringing mobile showers to Novato to serve the homeless amongst us, now we are going to provide some food for the people using the shower. We will provide a snack sack with a bagel, two granola or breakfast bars, two pieces of fruit, a peanut butter cup (Jiff on the Go) and a homemade cookie. We hope to get the bagels, fruit and cookies donated each week. 


We will start our program the first Sunday in October, making 20 snack sacks a week. We need one person to donate bagels, two people to bring fruit, and one person to bring homemade cookies (20 each). Then two or three people can assemble the food into the bags in between service every Sunday. Last, we need one person to bring the 20 bags to the mobile showers in Hamilton at 6 a.m. on Monday morning. Can you help? E-mail Regina at reginabrus@gmail.com. A Sign-Up Genius will be started soon, and she can put your name on the distribution list similar to how we operate the monthly Mill Street food program.

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."
