Order of Service
-Prayer Focus of the Week: Servant Leadership
–Scripture Reading: 1 Thessalonians 4:1-8 (ESV)
Finally, then, brothers, we ask and urge you in the Lord Jesus, that as you received from us how you ought to walk and to please God, just as you are doing, that you do so more and more. 2 For you know what instructions we gave you through the Lord Jesus. 3 For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you abstain from sexual immorality; 4 that each one of you know how to control his own body in holiness and honor, 5 not in the passion of lust like the Gentiles who do not know God; 6 that no one transgress and wrong his brother in this matter, because the Lord is an avenger in all these things, as we told you beforehand and solemnly warned you. 7 For God has not called us for impurity, but in holiness. 8 Therefore whoever disregards this, disregards not man but God, who gives his Holy Spirit to you.

Post-Thanksgiving Fellowship – This Friday the Lightners will be hosting a gathering in their home. It’ll be an Open House style between 1-5pm. Please bring an appetizer or dessert to share, and bring any activities or games you want to play. They do have space for some lawn games, weather permitting. Street parking is a little limited, so you might need to park a block away. Hope you can join us! Located at: 561 Charles Dr in Oceanside.
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:

Life Groups – Groups will be on break this week!
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. Wednesday’s group is a potluck dinner, while Friday’s is a potluck dessert.
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.
