Three months after his son’s suicide, Saddleback Church Pastor Rick Warren announced Friday he will return to the pulpit.

Warren plans to begin a series of sermons titled, “How to Get Through What You're Going Through,” on July 27 and 28, a church official said.

The first service starts at 4:30 p.m. July 27 and will be streamed live on saddleback.com.

Matthew Warren, 27, died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He was found dead in his home in the 25000 block of Pradera Drive in Mission Viejo April 5.

His father said Matthew Warren took his life with an unregistered gun he bought online.

The elder Warren founded Saddleback Church, one of the nation's 10 largest churches, and is the author of the best-selling book, "The Purpose Driven Life."

He delivered the invocation at President Barack Obama's first inauguration.
