Blockout Dates – If you are serving or plan on serving at Pillar Church over the next 3 months, we ask that you go into Planning Center or the Services app and enter any blockout dates you may have during January, February, and March. We need all blockout dates in by TODAY Sunday, December 11, so we can work on schedules. If you have not received a blockout date email or have not signed up for Planning Center/Services yet, please contact Kristy Martinez at (760) 505-2928 or [email protected] If you aren’t serving yet but would like to, please let one of the elders or ministry leaders know!
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.
Our Fall Life Group session is at the Massie home, 1615 Calle Las Casas in Oceanside, at 6pm every Friday and we’ll be studying through select Old Testament books. 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.
This Friday, December 16, will be our last gathering before we break for the holidays!
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]
