Bible Studies

Upcoming Events


Sunday Morning Bible Study (Virtual)

Sundays from 8:00am - 9:00am on Zoom

As adults study the Bible and discuss what they found during the week they gain a 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.  It isn’t long or difficult, but it does encourage participation. Men and women of all ages are welcome.

If you are interested in joining our Zoom discussion, contact Larry Dacquisto at (415) 577-2115 or email:

Adult Education Courses (Virtual)

Saturday from 10:30am - 12:00pm on Zoom

Our adult education classes draw steady attendance from PCN members and the greater Novato community. They feature a discussion on a wide variety of topics.
“The Dead Sea Scrolls” is a series of twenty-four video lectures that are free via Zoom and present the discovery, translation, and significance of ancient scrolls found at Qumran in 1947.  The Teaching Company produces videos as part of its “Great Courses” series, which features Dr. Gary Rendsburg, Ph.D., chair of the Department of Jewish Studies at Rutgers University.   The scrolls shed light on Jewish culture and theology at the time of Christ and raise issues about the transmittal of the Biblical record across time.  Weekly sessions will cover two thirty-one lectures and discussions led by Walt Campbell.

Women’s Bible Study (Virtual)

Thursdays from 10:00am - 11:30am on Zoom (May - September)

Women’s Bible Study invites all women to know Jesus better and in a personal way as we study Joshua. God raises up Joshua who is a second Moses, faithful & strong, leading the Israelites.  God promises to be with them.  He promises the same to us, today. This is a group of 25 or so women of all ages who meet from September to May on Thursdays from 10 am to 11:30 am.  Come for a life-changing encounter with God’s Word. 

Here is what to expect:

  • Insight: background information that you might otherwise have missed.
  • In Depth: historical information that helps you discover the how and why of biblical incidents.
  • In Life: life-application principles, so you can more readily put the Word to work in your life.
  • In Person: personality profiles to help you see Bible characters as fully rounded individuals.

Our dedicated project for more than 40 years is Tabs for Kids – collecting pop tabs from aluminum cans from PC members, friends and neighbors. They are donated to the Shriners Hospital for Children in Sacramento which sells them to a recycling company.  Proceeds are used to assist parents’ families with care expenses.
