We want to help lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. Below are some of the best next steps you can take here at Anthem to get involved, connect with other people, and grow your faith. Click on one of the links below to learn more about each.
At Anthem we believe that circles are better than rows. There is so much more to Anthem Church than just sitting in rows on Sunday. We think that circles, or Community Groups, is the best way to connect relationally and grow spiritually.
SOME HELPFUL DETAILS

– We offer College, Couples, Men’s and Women’s groups.

A Short-Term Group is sometimes the best next step for you to take that will help you grow in your faith journey. They are like Community Groups, but meet weekly for a short period of time and explore a specific topic. Click on a link below to learn more about each short-tarn group we offer at Anthem.

Who should be baptized?
Christians are people who believe that the blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin. Therefore, salvation occurs only when a person places his or her faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as the sufficient payment for his or her sin.
If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, then you are ready to be baptized. Just like a bride and groom show others their love for one another by wearing wedding bands, your baptism is your opportunity to show others that you have accepted Christ and are now walking with Him.
“Command those who are rich in this present world to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.” – 1 Timothy 6 17-18 (NIV)

Girls Place believes that all girls should be inspired, challenged and nurtured to become their very best by becoming independent women who embrace diversity, express their ideas, rise above obstacles, enhance their communities, and lead those around them. They empower girls to grow courageous, strong and self-sufficuent. They inspire them to celebrate themselves–their minds, their hearts, and their physical well being.
Sira believes the greatest gift you can give someone is hope. Each day, they invite women who are confused and hurting to share their story, a story they often feel they can’t share with anyone else. Many face an unexpected pregnancy or struggle with a past pregnancy decision. Sometimes, it’s an expecting mom or dad who feels overwhelmed and underprepared to be a parent or raise an additional child. Whatever their story, Sira is there to listen and to help.
Young Life doesn't start with a program. It starts with adults who are concerned enough about kids to go to them, on their turf and in their culture, building bridges of authentic friendship. These relationships don't happen overnight — they take time, patience, trust and consistency. We believe in the power of presence. Kids' lives are dramatically influenced when caring adults come alongside them, sharing God's love with them. Because their Young Life leader believes in them, they begin to see that their lives have great worth, meaning and purpose.
Embrace Grace, Inc. is a non-profit organization formed for the purpose of providing emotional, practical and spiritual support for single, young women and their families who find themselves in an unintended pregnancy. The primary goal of Embrace Grace is to empower churches across the nation to be a safe and non-judging place for the girls to run to when they find out they are pregnant, instead of the last place they are welcomed because of shame and guilt.
