Thanks to all who were instrumental in supporting this Mission:

We're blessed to be a blessing. Thanks for the sacrifice our veteran servicemen and women who risk their lives for our freedom we receive today in which our country is truly indebted to them.
It's always an awesome experience in The Lord connecting and fellowshipping with great Men & Women of Valor!

Memorial Day 2016 Care Package Delivery


Saddleback Church called brothers and sisters of Christ to be of service to their fellow man; to show kindness and to be available. A large number of volunteers came to deliver care packages and meet with veterans at the VA Long Beach spinal ward. Many were first time volunteers with the Veterans Ministry. We pray many come back to serve veterans again on August 13, 2016.  










God bless you and your family,

Ryan Halsey and the Veterans Ministry

200 care packages made last Sunday

The "Mercy" care package outreach this past Sunday was beyond amazing. You each contributed to make this event special for all the volunteers and veterans. With this act of kindness many hospitalized veterans (80+) will be encouraged and a seed will be planted. Our veterans deserve so much and we show them in a small way how much they mean to us. The care packages were packed full of goodies thanks to your generosity.




We hope you will be able to attend the care package  delivery to  veterans  this Saturday. The ministry's next quarterly outreach will be in August. Send us your email address to receive periodic emails about future veterans ministry events and outreach.


Thank you again and God Bless,

Candy Soden
















We hope you can be a part of this again in August. God bless you and your family.
