Prayer Focus of the Week: Pillar San Diego

Scripture Reading: Colossians 2:6–15 (ESV)

6 Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, 7 rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.
8 See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ. 9 For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily, 10 and you have been filled in him, who is the head of all rule and authority. 11 In him also you were circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ, 12 having been buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through faith in the powerful working of God, who raised him from the dead. 13 And you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses, 14 by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross. 15 He disarmed the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in him.

Q&A Time


Group Life Membership Class – God’s design for his church is that we would live as the family he creates us to be in Christ. Healthy families express their commitment to each other in various ways. Healthy churches also express their commitment to each other in various ways. One of the primary ways we express our commitment to each other as a church family is through meaningful church membership.

The starting point for our membership process begins with our Group Life course. Completing the class does not automatically make you a member of Pillar Church, but the class is a prerequisite for those who wish to go through the membership process. Our goal is that by the conclusion of the course, you will have a clear understanding of the beliefs, direction, and structure of our church family, as well as knowledge of the benefits and expectations of membership with Pillar Church.

Our next Group Life Membership Class will be held on Sunday, April 30th directly after church. Lunch will be provided. Please connect with one of the elders if you have questions and contact Trace at 760-505-0843 if you would like to RSVP. 

Baptism Sunday – Baptism is a public expression of an inward conviction. We follow in Jesus’ example by demonstrating our faith and identity in Jesus through this very meaningful act. If you have not yet been baptized and would like to be, please speak to Trace and we will make that happen. The next celebration of baptisms will take place as a part of our regular worship gathering on Sunday, May 7th. Trace can be reached at (760) 505-0843. 

Life Groups – Our Life Groups play a significant role in the life of believers. As their name suggests, we are literally “doing life” with one another. It’s in these smaller groups where relationships are deepened and the opportunity for biblical fellowship increases from Sunday morning interactions.

  • Oceanside: This Life Group meets every Friday at 6pm at the Massie home, 1615 Calle Las Casas in Oceanside. Please check BAND for more details. If you are not on the church’s Band account, please sign up–this is where we post meals and Life Group info.
  • San Onofre: This Life Group meets on the last Sunday of the month from 4-6pm in San Onofre Housing. The next meeting will be April 30th at a home TBD. We’ll be sharing a potluck-style meal with a bible study as well. For more info please contact Keith MacDonald at (757) 513-5059.

Fight Clubs are same-gender groups of about three people encouraging each other to live a life aligned with the gospel of Jesus Christ. The ultimate goal is to love Jesus more, through our affection for him and our allegiance to him, by helping each other rehearse the gospel and fight sin. Fight Clubs strive to meet at least twice a month for an intentional, focused time devoted to the word and genuine fellowship. For more information or to sign up contact:
