What's New

Hey Anthem! 

I hope everyone is having a great week! We are looking forward to a really sweet weekend ahead. This Sunday we have family dedications, baptisms, a message on Thomas from John 20 and a family dodgeball event on Sunday evening. It is a joy to walk through life together and I hope you get a chance to see and experience that this weekend.

-Matt

Summer bbq

Summer is upon us and we are kicking it off with a church barbecue Sunday May 29th, Memorial Day Weekend. We love growing in our relationships with the Anthem church body and what better way to do that than over good food and sunshine. 

Bring a lawn chair or a blanket and join us for lunch after the 11am gathering (if you come to the 9am gathering, come back at 12:30). Hot dogs and burgers will be provided and we’re asking everyone to help with all the sides.

Invite a friend to an Alpha Evenings.!

It is for those who do not consider themselves Christians or for those who are rethinking their faith.

Please be praying each week, asking God if there is someone you should invite to be a part of an Alpha Evening and bring them!
