Welcome Dessert

Each month, we host a dessert at our lead pastor's house for everyone who is new (or newish) to our church. We discuss a bit of who we are, and leave time for any questions you may have about the church. Even if you have been around our church community for a few months, we highly encourage anyone who hasn't been to one of these times to join us. We look forward to seeing you there!

Anthem Anywhere

This is a Sunday where the body of Christ at Anthem Church is meeting “house to house,” if you will. We are excited to take a Sunday and specifically remind ourselves that “the church” is not a building, but a gathered group of believers in Jesus Christ. People are gathering in homes, parks, coffee shops and a variety of other venues around Ventura County to worship Jesus, study the Scriptures, take communion and pray together.

There will be no regular Sunday Gathering on Jan 21. 

Day: Jan 21
