-Prayer Focus of the Week: Riverview Townhomes

Scripture Reading: Psalm 121:1–8 (ESV)

1 I lift up my eyes to the hills.
From where does my help come?
2 My help comes from the LORD,
who made heaven and earth.

3 He will not let your foot be moved;
he who keeps you will not slumber.
4 Behold, he who keeps Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.

5 The LORD is your keeper;
the LORD is your shade on your right hand.
6 The sun shall not strike you by day,
nor the moon by night.

7 The LORD will keep you from all evil;
he will keep your life.
8 The LORD will keep
your going out and your coming in
from this time forth and forevermore.

Come Hungry – Our final Come Hungry is TODAY here at the school right after service. This will be our annual chili & cornbread cookoff and Cornhole Tournament! We’re looking forward to a fun and slightly competitive afternoon and hope you’ll join us. 

Every summer we enjoy a time of food and fellowship every other Sunday through August! This is a time of year when we get to enjoy eating, playing games, and getting to know each other. Each Come Hungry will be “hosted” by a family in the church who will choose the theme and provide the main dish. Everyone else will bring a side dish, dessert, or drinks to share with the group. 

Life Groups – The fall session of Life Groups begins on Friday, September 8th. If you are interested in attending a Life Group, please fill out the sheet at the Welcome Table!

At Pillar Oceanside we believe God’s intent for his church is not that we would be like family, but that we are family! Life Groups play a very important role in the life of our church, helping us to live as God’s family – a family on mission. These groups are where we intentionally and regularly gather together to live as the family God created us to be. But that’s not all.

Our Life Groups are designed to grow us spiritually, relationally, and numerically. We will cover a wide variety of topics in these mid-week sessions that will increase your biblical knowledge. You will also have the opportunity to grow in relationships with other church members as you “do life” together with them. Lastly, we must be regularly reminded that God is at work ADDING TO his family. His mission to grow his family is our mission too.

Church Directory – Yes, we finally have a directory! This is open to members and regular attenders of Pillar Church of Oceanside. If you would like to be a part of this directory and have not received an invite, please contact Kristy Martinez at [email protected] or 760-505-2928. If you have already signed up, please take a minute to go back in and add contact information and pictures (if you’d like). When the initial invite went out, not all the options were available. If you have any questions please let us know!

Mark Your Calendars – Our Men’s Retreat, ManDown, is scheduled for October 20-21. Registration will open on September 1. More details to come!

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:

Ladies – Carmen Aponte – [email protected]

Men – Trace Martinez – [email protected]
