-Prayer Focus of the Week: Community

Scripture Reading:

1 Thessalonians 1:6-10 (ESV)

6 And you became imitators of us and of the Lord, for you received the word in much affliction, with the joy of the Holy Spirit, 7 so that you became an example to all the believers in Macedonia and in Achaia. 8 For not only has the word of the Lord sounded forth from you in Macedonia and Achaia, but your faith in God has gone forth everywhere, so that we need not say anything. 9 For they themselves report concerning us the kind of reception we had among you, and how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God, 10 and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, Jesus who delivers us from the wrath to come.

Sunday Night Football You’re invited to join us this evening to watch the Niners-Cowboys game! Kickoff is at 5pm, and we’ll be grilling up hot dogs and hamburgers. 903 Donnan Pl, Vista, bring some chips or drinks or a side to share–hope to see you!

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.

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:
