Order of Service
–Prayer Focus of the Week: ManDown 2022
–Scripture Reading: James 5:13-20 (ESV)
13 Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing praise. 14 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. 16 Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working. 17 Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed fervently that it might not rain, and for three years and six months it did not rain on the earth. 18 Then he prayed again, and heaven gave rain, and the earth bore its fruit. 19 My brothers, if anyone among you wanders from the truth and someone brings him back, 20 let him know that whoever brings back a sinner from his wandering will save his soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins.

Big Sunday – Next Sunday is the first Sunday of the month, which means it is BIG SUNDAY! It will be a Family Service so all the children will be in service with us…AND…it will be OUTSIDE! Big Sunday is also a potluck breakfast, and all are welcome (encouraged) to participate. If you’re able to bring a breakfast dish to share with the congregation, please bring it by 9:30am so we can enjoy it before service.
Leadership Team Meeting – Please mark your calendars for a leadership team meeting on 30 October. We will meet in the MPR over lunch with ministry leaders, team leaders, deacons, and elders to look to the future. We will also be joined by potential new leaders that may join our team.
ManDown 2022 – Within the Praetorian Project, ManDown men’s retreats have been held annually for the last 10 years on the East Coast. This year, that changes as we bring ManDown to Southern California! This 1.5-day event in October will help men to 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 21-23 (Friday evening-early Sunday morning) in Idyllwild, CA. Registration is $99. Payment options are available, full balance due by October 15. Registration is now open! Click here to register.
Life Groups – Our Life Groups play a significant role in the life of believers. As their name suggests, we are literally “doing life” with one another. It’s in these smaller groups where relationships are deepened and the opportunity for biblical fellowship increases from Sunday morning interactions.
Our Fall Life Group session is at the Massie home, 1615 Calle Las Casas in Oceanside, at 6pm every Friday. We’ll be having dinner together and studying the book of James. If you are not on the church’s Band account, please sign up–this is where we post meals and Life Group info.
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:
