"Therefore, encourage one another and build up one another, just as you also are doing."

1 Thessalonians 5:11

Small Groups

You were created to experience life with other people, and that’s why at Saddleback, we encourage you to get into a small group. Groups come in all shapes and sizes — married couples, singles, men, women, have kids, don’t have kids, workplace, under 20, over 40 — the list goes on. No matter where you are in life, there’s a group for you. Ready to dive in? Find a group that fits or start one of your own.

Bold Faith


We give because God gave first. All that we have, or hope to have, comes from him. The Bible says that giving is a reminder that God is the supplier of everything. It teaches us to always put God first in our lives.
