Sunday Morning Bible Study
Sundays from 8:00am - 9:00am
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.
Our current study is called “Many Faces of Wisdom” by David C, Cook.
Sermon Talk Backs
Mondays from 9:00am - 10:00am
Join Pastor Adam online (via Zoom) on Mondays at 9am to discuss the Scripture and Sermon from the Sunday prior.
Adult Education Courses
Our adult education classes draw steady attendance from PCN members and the greater Novato community. They feature 4-9 weeks of study and discussion on a wide variety of topics.
Our new series "Simply Christian will be taught by Rev. Dr. Adam Smith. It will be every Tuesday at 7pm starting on January 19th - February 16th and be held on Zoom. What is Christianity all about? From those who have never been in the church before to those who continue to learn and grow in their faith, this 5-week class explores the ‘basics’ of Christianity in conversation with theologian N.T. Wright’s book, Simply Christian. Much like a symphony, each class session will add to a holistic work that explores the Christian faith. In session #1 we will explore ‘echoes of a voice’ within creation that connect all of humanity. In Session #2-3 we will lay out the central Christian belief about God. In Session #2 we explore the story of Israel and Jesus. In Session #3 we further explore Jesus & the Holy Spirit. In Session #4-5 we explore what the church is for. In Session #4 we look at Worship, Prayer, and the Word. In Session #5 we look at the “The Story & Task,” “Believing & Belonging,” and a “New Creation, Starting Now.”
