What's Coming Up

Laundry Love

Laundry Love is a regular opportunity to come alongside people who are struggling financially by assisting them with their laundry. We partner with Midtown Coin Laundry in cleaning clothes and linens of low-income or no-income families and individuals. We see the laundromat as a place where strangers become friends, kids are known by name, hope is being hustled, and the worth of every human being is acknowledged and celebrated.

Time: 6:30-8:30pm

Happy Hour @ VCBC

The tour will include earnest prayer, exploration of the city, teachings from different leaders, times of worship together, and a ton more.

Days: Jul 25–27

Join a Team

Loving and helping one another is what makes our community what it is. We believe that the church is the family of God, and like a family, we all pitch in. Everyone is gifted and responsible for different aspects of seeing the church thrive. We would love for everyone who calls Anthem their home to serve because we are a people who have been truly served by Jesus through His life, death, and resurrection. 


Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that freely explore life and the basics of the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. It’s just an open, informal and honest space to explore and discuss life’s big questions together. Whether you’re just checking it out, new to faith, or coming back to church you are invited. Everyone is welcome.
