HUGE Weekend at Anthem!

Hey All!

In case you hadn’t heard, we’ve got a HUGE Weekend Ahead!!! 


If you haven’t been around for the past few weeks, I’ll fill you in on what’s going on. We have been in the process of establishing our first pastor/elder team for a little over a year. We’ve spent time with a group of guys and their wives, getting to know their hearts, the passions and their character. God has opened the door for us to step into our new age as a church, with a team of elders in place. 

That is happening THIS SUNDAY! 

On Sunday, May 19th at 10:00, we will be having an all campus morning with a worship team made up of leaders from both campuses. We will have a time of ordination for our new elders. And we will hear from Chris Wienand (VEE-nandt). Chris is serving Anthem in an apostlolic role, helping to establish our foundations in the Scriptures, the Spirit and the mission of Jesus.

I would love to invite everyone who calls Anthem Church their home to join us on Sunday. 

We will be meeting at Los Cerritos Middle School with Anthem Kids happening at the Boys and Girls Club.

**********Please Note****************

We have heard there will be a softball tournament happening and we’re expecting a large attendance, so please plan a few extra minutes for parking and Anthem Kids check in! 

We will have a parking team out on the streets pointing you where to park!

Trust me when I say that you won’t want to miss one minute of our day. We will start promptly at 10:00. Feel free to show up early and mingle, just to make sure you get in a settled on time. 


Sunday is a big day, not to celebrate the guys who will be stepping in to eldership, but to honor the Lord by stepping into a pattern of church life that has been established for 2000 years. We want Anthem to reflect the church of the Bible and pastor/elder leadership is a major part of that. 


On Sunday night we will be holding our monthly Leadership Community. This is a chance for our leaders to gather for vision, training, and encouragement! It’s going to be a lot of fun talking vision in light of our pastor/elder leadership transition. Please join us!

We will be at Lighthouse Church in Newbury Park at 5:00 on Sunday evening! The dinner is potluck style, so please see the event posted on the City for more details on that. We will have childcare available at Lighthouse as well.

*Note the location change*

And last, but not least, for the TO campus (and anyone else that wants to join), we will be meeting on Saturday morning at 7:00 am at Ladera Elementary School in Thousand Oaks to serve our community by taking care of one of our schools! We will be painting, cleaning up their vegetable garden and cleaning out and installing a new computer room!

We are hoping to have 25+ people of all ages helping out on Saturday! Kids are welcome (if they’re up for pulling some weeds 🙂

This is a great opportunity for Anthem to be a blessing to our community! Come on out and join us!


Whew! That’s it, that’s all I’ve got. Guys, I can’t even tell you how excited I am about Anthem! Thank you for being a part of this with us! Can’t wait to see you this weekend!
