Order of Service
-Prayer Focus of the Week: Pillar DC
–Scripture Reading: James 2:1–7 (ESV)
2 My brothers, show no partiality as you hold the faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory. 2 For if a man wearing a gold ring and fine clothing comes into your assembly, and a poor man in shabby clothing also comes in, 3 and if you pay attention to the one who wears the fine clothing and say, “You sit here in a good place,” while you say to the poor man, “You stand over there,” or, “Sit down at my feet,” 4 have you not then made distinctions among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts? 5 Listen, my beloved brothers, has not God chosen those who are poor in the world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom, which he has promised to those who love him? 6 But you have dishonored the poor man. Are not the rich the ones who oppress you, and the ones who drag you into court? 7 Are they not the ones who blaspheme the honorable name by which you were called?

Group Life Membership Class –
Our next Group Life membership class will be offered today Sunday, February 4th, right after service. This is the first step in becoming a member at Pillar and covers the basics of who we are as a church. If you’re interested, please talk with Pastor Trace. Lunch will be provided.
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.
Big Sunday – The 1st Sunday of every month is “Big Sunday” at Pillar Church and things may look a little different than our typical church day! Here’s what you can expect:
- Grab a name tag from the Welcome Table. We want to take the opportunity each month to have a visual on those names you need a little help remembering.
- We invite our Treehouse class (K-5) to join us in service. Be sure to take notes (there are sheets printed for you on the book table). If you bring your notes to show Mrs. Kristy after service, you can choose something from the Treasure Box! There is class for Seedlings/Saplings (Nursery-PreK).
- Hospitality Table Potluck! If you would like to bring a breakfast item or dish to share on the hospitality table you are encouraged to do so! If you’re able to bring a breakfast dish to share with the congregation, please bring it by 9:30am so we can enjoy it before service.
Every Sunday at Pillar is a GREAT Sunday, the 1st Sunday of the month is just a great BIG Sunday!
Super Bowl Sunday – You’re invited to the Martins’ home, 4528 Arbor Glen Way, Oceanside, to watch the game! Doors open at 3pm, kickoff is at 3:30. John and Jacque will be serving up some tri-tip and potato salad. Bring a side or some munchies to share!
Life Groups – Our Life Groups are back in session! We have two groups meeting during the week and are both open to anyone who’d like to study the word and get to know people on a deeper level.
Wednesday Nights at the Furtados, 155 McKinley, Oceanside facilitated by Trace Martinez
Friday Nights at the Massies, 1615 Calle Las Casas, Oceanside facilitated by the Massies
Both groups meet at 6pm and have a potluck followed by a study. The Wednesday night potluck is dinner, while the Friday night potluck is dessert only.
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.
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:
