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.

 

 

 


 

Helping Novato's Homeless

 

"Downtown Street Teams" Needs Volunteers 

 

 

The Rotating Emergency Shelter Team (REST) has provided relief to men and women of Marin for more than ten years and has now come to an end. During the cold and wet months of the year, the program fed and temporarily sheltered people who had no way to get out of the elements. PCN volunteers have served with dedication, loyalty and compassion over many years. 

 

Due to transportation limitations Novato’s homeless could not take advantage of REST. A new service, that will more directly benefit the unhoused residents of Novato, is now in place.


Marin County has purchased two specially designed trailers containing three shower/toilet units, one of which is ADA compliant. Operated by DOWNTOWN STREETS TEAM, fresh hot showers, free of charge, will be available on a regular schedule at two locations in Novato. 

 

Downtown Streets Team Office
816 State Access Road (Hamilton near Homeward Bound) Monday, Wednesday, Friday
6:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. 

 

Marin Community Clinics

6100 Redwood Blvd. Tuesday and Thursday 6:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. 

 

Downtown Streets Team staff and volunteers are reaching out to the homeless in Novato with program information and inviting them to take advantage of this free service. Volunteers will help, even watching pets if needed. This new service now provides the opportunity to volunteer. For information contact Bill Walker at 415-726-6733 or email him at walkerb1959@gmail.com. 


 

 

 

 

 

Sunday Bible Studybible study image

"God Calls Us into Covenant"

 

 

The Adult Sunday School class meets at 9:00 a.m. on Sunday mornings. We currently have eight to twelve members attending. The class is taught by Carol Dacquisto with Larry Dacquisto and Rosie Nicholas teaching once every other month. 

 

Our study is David C. Cook’s “Bible in Life” featuring both the old and new testaments. It starts in Genesis and 2 Chronicles and shows how Abraham and Solomon acknowledged God by following His guidance. How do we follow God? Then Jesus’ resurrection opened the way to honor God. Do our lives honor God? It emphasizes how the people responded to God by bringing offerings and dedicating their lives to God’s work. What do we dedicate our lives to? The unit concludes with one session drawn from Psalms and Hebrews that rejoices in God’s reconciling action on behalf of the people. LET US ALL REJOICE!!
