One of the visions as a result of our vision retreat was that of a community garden! This is any piece of land gardened by a group of people, utilizing private or public land. The land may produce fruit, vegetables, and/or ornamentals. The garden is located in the back right corner of our property. Check it out next time you are on campus!
Prayer Card Ministry
Prayer is powerful. Reaching out to those in need by letting them know you are praying is ministry. Each week our Wednesday Night Adult Bible Study groups write prayer cards to various people on our prayer list. These cards are not limited to people just in our church. They are a great ministry to people in times of struggle. If you or someone you know has a prayer need, please email to email@example.com.
Gateway is committed to helping fulfill the Great Commission by working with church plants and pastors in Pamplona, Peru and surrounding areas.
Common Ground Backpack Program
Begun by the Common Ground Sunday School, this wonderful ministry has grown to a churchwide ministry. Members of the church donate non-perishble food items to be placed in backpacks for children in our local elementary schools. Sadly, the only meals some children receive during the week are at school. These filled backpacks are sent home each week with food, a bible, and information about our church. If you would like to donate, buckets are placed throughout the church and a list of needed items is in the church office.

Celebrate Recovery is a biblical and balanced program that helps us overcome our hurts, hang-ups, and habits. It is based on the actual words of Jesus rather than psychological theory. 25 years ago, Saddleback Church launched Celebrate Recovery with 43 people. It was designed as a program to help those struggling with hurts, habits and hang-ups by showing them the loving power of Jesus Christ through a recovery process. Celebrate Recovery has helped more than 17000 people at Saddleback, attracting over 70% of its members from outside the church. Eighty-five percent of the people who go through the program stay with the church and nearly half serve as church volunteers. Our group is in the early stages of ministry. If you would like to be involved or want more information, please contact the church office.
