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.
At Anthem we believe that “circles are better than rows.” That’s because we know life change happens best when we are looking at someone’s face and not the back of their head in a service. As a result of this conviction, we are committed to help people experience healthy relationships and spiritual growth in the context of our Community Groups.

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)
We want to be a local church that is making a real difference in our community. As a result, we have partnered with a number of local nonprofit organizations that are doing great work in our community. Throughout the year we do a number of things to partner with these organizations; from food drives to generosity campaigns. Below you can learn more about these local non-profit parters as well as watch a video about our most recent Be Rich Generosity Campaign.

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.

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.
