Order of Service
-Prayer Focus of the Week: Prayer
–Scripture Reading: James 1:19–27 (ESV)
19 Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; 20 for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God. 21 Therefore put away all filthiness and rampant wickedness and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.
22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. 24 For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like. 25 But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing.
26 If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person’s religion is worthless. 27 Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.

Football & Fellowship – The Martinezes would love to have you over after service to watch the AFC playoff game. They will be serving chili dogs, if you’d like to join please bring something to share! 903 Donnan Pl, Vista.
Group Life Membership Class –
Our next Group Life membership class will be offered on 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 – Next week is BIG SUNDAY! We will have a potluck breakfast–if you’d like to bring something to share, please have it at church by 9:30 so everyone can enjoy it. We also welcome our Treehouse (elementary school) class to join us in service. There will be class for younger students (Nursery-PreK).
Every Sunday at Pillar is a GREAT Sunday, the 1st Sunday of the month is just a great BIG Sunday!
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:
Ladies – Carmen Aponte – [email protected]
Men – Trace Martinez – [email protected]
