To help visitors understand how we gather as a church, we have provided a description of our weekly service below. Generally, our services are characterized by solemn contemplation of the Bible and its doctrines, passionate corporate singing, and friendly interaction with one another and our guests.

Sunday morning service begins at 10:00 am in the community center at Luckie Park – (74325 Joe Davis Drive, Twentynine Palms, CA 92277)
Volunteers meet on site at 8:30 am to assist in unloading our trailer and setting things up in preparation for church.
We offer childcare for children 5 and under during the worship service. Our childcare volunteers are all screened, trained, and background checked to ensure your child’s safety. Currently, the children are going through a New Testament study by Truth:78, a ministry of Desiring God.
The music we sing at Pillar Church is a blend of old and new. We love the doctrinally rich hymns of the sixteenth century and we find blessing in the choruses of the twenty-first. Most of us who are comfortable with music from one particular era have discovered, while at Pillar, that we have come to enjoy other songs we had not previously encountered. We strongly prefer congregational singing, which emphasizes the gathered body singing praise to God with one voice, over performed music, which tends to spotlight the abilities of some while encouraging passivity in the rest.
As we begin our time of worship, we sing several songs, offer prayers and hear Scripture read.
Preaching at Pillar Church is generally expositional, meaning that it seeks to declare the point of a particular Biblical passage. Sermons usually last around 30 – 40 minutes and are packed with material for reflection. All preaching is driven by the Gospel, the Bible’s main message of God saving sinners through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. After the sermon, we sing a song or two in response to what was preached and then close in prayer.
A typical service is finished by 11:30 am. We provide light refreshments immediately after the service to encourage fellowship. Those who wish to help tear-down and reload the trailer do so, while others tend to stay after to spend time discussing the sermon or events from the past week over a cup of coffee.
