Saddleback Singles

Purpose Statement

Saddleback Loves Singles

Saddleback Singles help Singles CONNECT with each other, GROW in their faith, SERVE others in love, REACH their world for Jesus, and HONOR God with their life.

We are multiple communities of Single Men and Single Women in their 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, and 60s, who are actively pursuing a relationship with Jesus by living out God’s purposes for our life. Whether you’ve never been married, are divorced, are widowed or are a single parent, then this is the place for you.

God doesn’t want you to live in isolation. Psalm 68:6 tells us, “God places the lonely in families...” That’s us! Saddleback Singles is a family where you can know others and be known. Regardless of where you’re at in your spiritual journey, our family is open to you. We look forward to meeting you! In the meantime, CHECK OUT OUR BLOG.
