-Prayer Focus of the Week: Children’s Ministry

Scripture Reading: 1 Thessalonians 1:1-5 (ESV)

1 Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy, To the church of the Thessalonians in God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace to you and peace. 2 We give thanks to God always for all of you, constantly mentioning you in our prayers, 3 remembering before our God and Father your work of faith and labor of love and steadfastness of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. 4 For we know, brothers loved by God, that he has chosen you, 5 because our gospel came to you not only in word, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with full conviction. You know what kind of men we proved to be among you for your sake.

Riverview Townhomes – This Saturday we will be hosting a community BBQ for the complex next door to the school. We are asking first and foremost for your prayers. Pray that many would come and participate, and that we might develop relationships that last beyond Saturday. We are also looking for a few volunteers that want to help serve in some capacity. The event runs from 12-2pm with volunteers needed 11:30am-2:30pm. See Trace if you’re interested.

Life Groups – We have two Life Groups this session:

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 dinner followed by a study. 

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.

ManDown SoCal – This 1.5-day event will help men grow in their faith, deepen their love for Christ, and do all kinds of cool man stuff. The event will join men from all three SoCal Pillar churches as we gather October 20-21 in Idyllwild, CA. Registration is $115, with payment options available ($25 deposit to reserve your spot). We hope you’ll join us!​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ Visit  https://pillaroceanside.churchcenter.com/…/events/1914170 to register.

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:
