Hey Anthem Family!
I hope that God has been showing you ways this week to build your life on the person, work and word of Jesus Christ! That is how we grow as people of the Gospel and ultimately how we can be a blessing to the world around us. Grab our midweek podcast interview with Deb Womack as she unpacks what it has looked like for her to live her life built on the Gospel of Jesus!
This week we will be hearing from our good friend, Brad Sarian about how community contributes to our transformation to being like Jesus. We will be under the tent and on the livestream at 9:30 on Sunday. Thank you to all of you who joined us for the family meeting last Sunday. It was SO encouraging to hear how God’s Word is shaping your thinking and understanding right now. Kristen mentioned it on Sunday, but we are going to have a baptism on Sunday, January 31st. If you haven’t been baptized and you are interested in knowing more, please let us know at Info@anthemchurch.org. We will have a Zoom baptism class on Wednesday, January 27th and would love for you to join us. Have a great weekend!
Matt and Kristen
Though teachers and students of Thousand Oaks High School will not return in campus for in person learning, we still want to encourage and bless the 200 faculty and staff with gift bags full of treats! We have a great history with TOHS and while protocols may look different, we want to take any opportunity we can to bring the presence of Jesus to a moment that can be stressful and difficult.
All food must be store bought and commercially sealed. For Anthem to do this well, we need everyone to help out! We have a shopping list if you want to pick up supplies and we will be writing encouragement notes at our Sunday gatherings.
All items need to be collected by Wed, 1/27, get all the details by clicking the link below.
If you have any questions, contact Rob Patterson at email@example.com
As a supplement to our series called This Is Anthem, we wanted to share brief conversations about how we can tangibly live out the presence of Jesus in our lives. This week, we have a conversation with Matt & Kristen Larson and Deb Womack. We hope you enjoy it!
We'll be posting the episodes on our podcast feed called, Anthem Thousand Oaks: Everything Else. To get these episodes delivered automatically, be sure to subscribe.

Giving & Generosity
Giving At Anthem
Giving cheerfully and sacrificially is a part of worship at Anthem. We give generously because God has first been generous to us. We dream of becoming a church marked by radical generosity. Over ten percent of every dollar goes directly to supporting compassion and church planting work both globally and locally.
