Motel Church

Purpose Statement

The mission of Motel Church is to reach working poor and transitional homeless individuals and families living in weekly motels with the hope that we have in Jesus Christ, while sharing a potluck breakfast with them.

Motel Church is a rewarding family-friendly way to make a difference in our community. Every week small groups, individuals and families from Saddleback Church bring church and breakfast to motels, within a short drive from your Saddleback campus.

When you sign up, we send you all the information of where you will be serving, when to be there, what to expect, and what to bring to contribute to the potluck breakfast we share with our motel neighbors. The morning you serve, an experienced on-site leader meets you at your motel for prayer and to direct the activities. Next, we set up to share breakfast and we lead a few songs of worship. Then, a speaker shares a short, message of hope from God’s word and prayer, and it’s time to pack up and head home.

Fast facts: Choose either a Saturday or Sunday morning, and in which county you want to serve. Typical serving time at your motel is just 9 - 11:15 am. This is an easy ministry to try, and your heart will be filled by the experience.
