This is the Official Saddleback Church app. When you download this FREE app, you're only a tap away from Pastor Rick Warren's weekend messages, delivered straight from the pulpit. You'll also have access to our live video stream from the services so you can experience Saddleback Church live each weekend.

What else does this app offer? Well, there is our Media Center, where you can view or hear from the pulse of Saddleback Church by clicking on our Featured Tab. There is also the Connections Tab that shares our teaching for kids, college-age, men's and women's ministries. The Growth Tab has a plethora of offerings from past Civil Forums, to Daily DriveTime Devotionals, to Bible Q&A, and more!

The Saddleback Church App was created with The Church App by Subsplash.

Customer Reviews

Too many flaws


Nice design but frustrating to have no control to pause and backtrack on a number of audio tracts. Others simply stop 35 minutes into the sermon w/o notice with no ability to pick up from where you left off. Many other tracts from "Evidence" have audio volumes that are barely audible. Lastly no way to return to favorite sermons easily. Sometimes requires at least 6 layers of prompts to get back from where you were. App needs more work.

Constantly shut down

When I first downloaded the app it works well. After a week - now, the app constantly shutting off. I am not sure if I am suppose to update the app frequently or something else needs to be fixed. I would've given a 4 - 5 stars if the app works well. I am mostly interested in hearing the weekly sermon, which apparently now there is only one series. It used to had multiple series of sermons when I first had it.

I loved this App until the last release...


For some reason the only video or audiobook I am able to play are the ones I have already downloaded. It doesn't matter if I'm on Wifi or my network. The playback will start and run for a few mins then restart.
If I attempt to download the audio it tries for a long time then fails.
Any help would be appreciated. The App Support link was dead or I would have sent this there.
