How to Resurrect Anthem Kids in One Sentence
by Allen Coleman on March 1st, 2021
We're planting a church...or have you forgotten? A church in Covlandia to be exact. And there is one universal, indisputable truth about church planting anywhere: the hardest ministry to launch is kids ministry. We've already moved into the early stages of men's and women's ministry taking shape at Anthem Church. Worship ministry is in the middle of its transition, as well. And while there is much...  Read More
Lent 2021: What to Expect
by Andrew Clark on February 10th, 2021
A hallmark of the liturgical church calendar, Lent is a season preceding Easter dedicated to somber reflection on the weight of our sin, which separated us from God and led Christ to the cross to die in our place to win us back to our Heavenly Father. Lent typically lasts about 40 days (Sundays excluded) beginning on Ash Wednesday (February 17 this year) and ending on either Maundy Thursday, Holy ...  Read More

The Pastor's Confessional
by Allen Coleman on February 3rd, 2021
This week, every year, for the past 12 years, the same two events happen in conjunction with one another. Both my age and my ministry get a little older. I find new torn pages in my Bible with each passing year, just as I find new gray hairs in my beard. With the notable past exceptions of my 10-year anthemversary and my 40th birthday, both events come and go, each year, without much fuss.However,...  Read More

Message from our Pastor
by Allen Coleman on January 6th, 2021
Dearest Anthem,I will quote a man I love dearly to, briefly, summarize my thoughts on the day, thus far (see below). "This vile evil (pictured above) deepens my resolve, by God’s grace, to be a faithful Christian in my generation. What our suffering nation needs, above all else, is the healing power of Jesus Christ. To that I now re-dedicate myself." -Pastor Raymond Ortlund, Jr....  Read More
