• A family of churches

    Anthem Thousand Oaks is part a family of churches helping people find their way back to God. The Anthem family of churches is united around shared mission, vision, values, and submission to the Lordship of King Jesus. In our cities, we are working to obey Jesus in helping people find their way back to God.

First Impressions

The First Impressions teams are the frontrunners for making people feel welcome on Sunday mornings. From serving coffee to restocking the restrooms, we aim at helping all guests attending our gatherings on a Sunday morning feel the love and care of Jesus.

What's expected

There are four different areas to serve on the First Impressions team: Coffee, Greeting, Ushering, and Transition. We ask for a 12-month annual commitment where you'll typically be serving once a month.
First Impressions Lead, Emily Kirk will be your report for the team and will provide required training for each position.
