Please use wisdom and discretion, and self-screen before gathering in-person.
What about my kids?
Once you've parked, head up the short flight of stairs to the building that looks like a school (the U), and we'll happily show you around Anthem Kids, and make sure you and your kids are comfortable and excited to hang with us. Kids will get checked in and remain with you for worship in singing. During family time, parents will be dismissed to drop off kids before the teaching begins.
If this is your first time checking in your child, please arrive 10-15 minutes early to get all set up.
If you have kids who are in grades 6-9, Anthem Students does things a bit different.
After the time of singing together, we'll invite the students to join a group of leaders next door at the Anthem Office, where they will hear a message from one of our Anthem Students leaders that is about the same part of the Bible we'll be teaching from under the tent, but geared much more to students.
Students join the adults again towards the end of the gathering for communion, singing, etc.
Students also meet together during the week. High school on Tuesdays 7-9PM and middle school on Wednesdays 6:30-8:30PM, check out the link below for more info.
We will provide a link to livestream the in person gathering for those needing to gathering with us from a distance. We want to care and shepherd well, anyone joining online so we ask that you register to receive a link each week and let us know that you will be attending.
