Followers of the Way is a non-denominational Bible Study group of pastors that meets and discusses the scripture of the week in two ways:
- The pastors meet on Zoom on Mondays and record their discussion, publishing the videos on Monday afternoons on YouTube and on this page. The pastors read and discuss the reading for the upcoming Sunday.
- There is an in-person meeting (almost) every Monday at noon in the Fellowship Hall. Come at 11:30 for lunch ($5, first timers eat free), and the discussion begins at 12:15 and goes until about 1:00. This weekly non-denominational Bible Study is led by Rev. John DeBevoise and PCPC Staff.
A note from the pastors dated February 20, 2023:
As you’ve noticed, the pastors have taken a break from recording and distributing the weekly “Followers of the Way” Bible Study. We have taken the break to re-imagine what we might do with that time and space since “Followers of the Way” has returned to its full in-person gathering on Mondays.
We are still in the process of re-naming ourselves; however for the season of Lent we will be recording a pastor’s conversation on the Gospel lectionary text each week. Feel free to email us with any questions or your own reflections on the text. In our new design we are intending for the study and conversation to be a bit more contemplative, allowing for your own reflections as you encounter the text along with us. If you’d like to be added to the email list, you can request that by emailing DiannaWilliams@palmaceia.org.
Peace be with you,
Nicole Abdnour, John DeBevoise, Ken Hubbell, Mike Peacock, and John Reiter

Great session this morning! When you spoke about the environment of having an intimate relationship with someone, but being physically separated I thought of my ten combat tours; the shortest was two months, the longest was a year. I tried to attend Chapel every Sunday, but often combat planning and opns precluded my participation. I do have a Bible from each tour and I remember most of my Chaplains. Chaplain Jeff Struecker (former U.S. Army Ranger) in his book “The Road to Unafraid” best describes the deployed special operations environment. I was so lucky to have had the support of my great family and Churches. They helped keep my relationship tight and grounded even when my daily profession required me to find and pinpoint the location of High Value Terrorists for our assault forces to capture/kill.
