Dear Saddleback Family,
We're only a few weeks away from our Decade of Destiny Campaign, a month long celebration that will include some extremely important events:
- First, we'll be celebrating our 30th anniversary and Easter at Angel Stadium on April 4.
- Second, we'll be looking at the next 10 years of where we're going as a church family.
- Finally, our Easter offering will go to help Haiti.
Decade of Destiny Campaign: Six-week campaign
- March 27-28: Vision launch of Saddleback's future.
- April 4: Our Easter Celebration starts at 10:00 a.m. It's the 30th anniversary of Saddleback Church and we're going to take about 50,000 of our people to Angel Stadium. You'll want to get there early to tailgate with your family, friends, and small group. We'll be baptizing in four locations after the service, so if you know somebody who'd like to be baptized, this is an exciting time to do it! Tell others about Easter!
- April 10-11: Homecoming Week - We're inviting everybody who's been a member, attendee, or staff member of Saddleback Church over the last 30 years to come to church this weekend to celebrate together!
- April 17-18: Community Weekend - We're honoring firemen, policemen, teachers, nurses, doctors, city officials, and other men and women who have sacrificially served our community over the last 30 years.
- April 24-25: Anniversary Week - We're going to spend the week celebrating the year you joined Saddleback!
- May 1-2: This weekend will be a celebration and a commitment to the future and the role you'll play in it!
What I Need From You!
- First, download and print an Easter Poster and put it on your business window, post it in your office - wherever you think people will see it.
- Second, send me two pictures: a current picture of yourself and then another picture from the year you started attending Saddleback.
In the coming weeks, we'll hand out 50,000 grocery bags for you to fill for families in need in our community. Make sure you pick one up and bring it filled with food on Easter Sunday!
- Finally, I want your feedback! Please answer this quick, one question survey. Click Here
There's a whole lot more I'm going to be telling you week-to-week about the Decade of Destiny... but start getting ready for it now! This weekend I'll be in Part Three of the series on When Love Speaks
, so bring a friend to church with you this weekend!
God Bless You!
