Teaching Series

Hey Anthem Fam,

If you were here a couple weeks ago, Matt mentioned that he was going to try to send back a sermon from the Anthem family he is visiting across the world. Well...IT WORKED!! This weekend will be super special as we get to hear from one of our own who has followed God's call on his family's life to bring Jesus to the far corners of the world. This message is an important one. Whether near or far, we are ALL called to be carriers of the hope of Jesus into this broken world. The message for this weekend is key for being a church that fulfills that mandate. It is not one that we will be able to post online so make sure to get here at 9 or 11 for the video! Can't wait to see you all this weekend!

Much love,
Matt and Kristen


A great opportunity to share the love and truth of Jesus Christ during the Christmas season to all those here in the VYCF facility. A full dinner of BBQ and the trimmings is delivered to the staff and youth on each living unit. What makes this evening so special is the opportunity it provides for members of the body of Christ to be in the environment where our youth are housed and to fellowship with each one.

If you are interested, or have any questions, please reach out to Tim Donahue (from Anthem Camarillo) before Monday, Nov 18.
