Order of Service 

-Prayer Focus of the Week: Fasting

Scripture Reading: James 3:13-18 (ESV)

13 Who is wise and understanding among you? By his good conduct let him show his works in the meekness of wisdom. 14 But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth. 15 This is not the wisdom that comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. 16 For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice. 17 But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere. 18 And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.

PUSH Week – Here in North County, several groups of disciple-makers will be participating in various activities over the course of our Push Week, which is March 18th – 24th. For our area we have a few options available, but you are free to use any avenues you’d like. The goal is to engage the people around us in ways that a conversation takes place that helps us to know if they are a potential person of peace. The hope is that we can find these people and begin a discipleship relationship with them. Our main effort will be thru daily prayer walks, Monday-Friday 4:30-6:30pm, and a kids sports camp on Saturday the 23rd from 11am-2pm. The entire week will culminate with a BBQ gathering on 3/24, celebrating what God did during the week! Please let Trace know how you’d like to participate or if you have any questions about it.

Life Groups – Our Life Groups are 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:
