One of our big values as a church is generosity. From the moment we started dreaming about what God would have in store for our church plant over eight years ago, we knew we wanted to be a church that reflected the generous heart of God for the world around us.
As a regular opportunity for us to flex our “generosity muscles” as a church, we’ve committed to taking every penny that comes in on Anthem’s anniversary week, and pouring it into local and global initiatives that we’ve partnered in ministry with. We unashamedly invite everyone to consider giving more than they’ve given before, to get creative with fundraising, etc. on this one week of the year where we can put Jesus on display through how we pour out finances to others around us.
Over the last seven years of Celebrate Generosity, we’ve seen wells dug to give clean water to thousands, dormitories built to house kids rescued out of trafficking in Thailand, churches planted in Camarillo, San Diego, Ventura, Downey, Chatsworth, Temecula, church buildings built an pastoral ministries supported in Nepal, orphanages supported, and the list goes on and on. We have been blown away with the response year after year, and are incredibly grateful to see God use these funds in so many beautiful ways.
