-Question & Answer Time


Prayer Walking – We will be serving the community of condos adjacent from the school, but we’d first like to saturate the area in prayer. This week we will be prayer walking around the neighborhood on Tuesday and Thursday from 5:30-6:30pm. We will meet in the Del Rio parking lot and go from there. 

Come Hungry Season – Our next Come Hungry is scheduled for today, July 23rd at the Johnson Home, 512 Zeilin St on Camp Pendleton. If you don’t have base access, connect with another family to arrange a carpool! We would love to have everyone join us. The theme is Chicken Salad Bar. The Johnsons will be providing chicken salad and a variety of toppings, bread, and crackers. Bring a side dish or dessert to share and be ready to fellowship together! 

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. 

Group Life Membership Class – Our next Group Life membership class will be offered on Sunday, July 30th directly 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 connect 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.

Members’ MeetingWe will be holding our quarterly members’ meeting Sunday, August 13th following service (no lunch, we’re planning on a relatively quick gathering). This meeting is for those who are official members of the church and those who are in the membership process as well. 

Giving – There are several ways to give at Pillar Church. Click here to give online, or you may drop your offering in the box located on the Welcome Table. Thank you for your contribution!

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:
