Order of Service 

-Prayer Focus of the Week: Oceanside Schools

Scripture Reading: James 1:1–8 (ESV)

1 James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ,
To the twelve tribes in the Dispersion:
2 Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, 3 for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. 4 And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. 6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. 7 For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; 8 he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.

21 Day Challenge – On Monday we began New Year’s challenge — it’s a 21-day challenge based on a devotional book on discipleship. The daily reading is quite minimal, but the daily challenge requires a bit more effort. If you’d like to join, you can still jump, please let Trace ASAP. Books are also available. 

Life Groups – Our Life Groups are on break for the holidays and will resume the week of January 15th.

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.

Children & Family Ministries Child Abuse & Reporting Training

All children’s ministry and youth group volunteers, please make plans to attend this important training!

Please contact Kristy with any questions– 760.505.2928 or [email protected].

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:
