Community Groups are the primary way we scatter during the week around Thousand Oaks to live out the way of Jesus together.
A Community Group is a place you can be known and loved because the Gospel is real. Not only can you be known and loved by God, but you can be known and loved by your brothers and sisters in Jesus. Community Groups are places where you belong.
It doesn’t matter if you are young, old, married, divorced, single, if you have kids, if you don't have kids, male or female, broken, doing pretty well, depressed or happy. Whatever your condition or your history, the Gospel is real and Jesus is the solution. He has adopted us into his family as sons and daughters where we fully belong. Here we are loved and belong, and the love of God moves us to be a part of something bigger than ourselves.
At Anthem, our Community Groups can be quite diverse, spanning 2-4 generations, which makes each group such a blast! Each week our groups gather and share life together. Some share a meal, dessert, or coffee and much, much more. We dive into the word of God together and stir one another toward faith and good deeds. Each week, we seek the face of God together through prayer, making our requests known to our incredible Father.
How do I join a Community Group?
A great place to start is with relationship. If you are new to Anthem, browse through our days / regions and see what makes sense for you. If you'd like some help with finding a group, please email Matt Lauahi, our Community Groups Administrator, at firstname.lastname@example.org, and he can point you in the best direction!
