HERE YOU WILL FIND ALL THE VARIOUS GROUPS AND MINISTRIES THAT MAKE UP ANTHEM CHURCH. WE CALL IT ANTHEM ANATOMY—IT'S THE CULTURE OF ANTHEM CHURCH AS EXPRESSED AND EXPERIENCED THROUGH ITS BODY OF BELIEVERS IN COMMUNITY.
We know that everyone is on their own faith journey, and how they most need to experience Jesus in any given season can be very different. Our desire for Anthem Anatomy is that people would be able to find and connect with others who share their heart's cry, so that they might journey together.
These groups have been created through a very intentional formation process, which seeks to ensure that the invitation of each group is very clear—so people have a good sense of what they're all about and what to expect. We encourage you to consider the journey you're on with Jesus right now, and what He's calling you to—and then find a group below that speaks to you.
