We love our town. We love its picturesque setting framed with blooms of Crepe Myrtles. We love its heritage and the bright future that lies ahead. But most of all we love the people.
Our heart is to be a blessing to all of our neighbors. We are here to help individuals find meaning and purpose for their lives and to help them maximize their God-given potential. We are here to comfort the downtrodden, aid the poor, feed the hungry, and befriend the lonely. We are committed to sharing the love and truth of God and to being the hands and feet of Jesus. Our heart is to serve our town and to be part of making it the best place to live in North Carolina.
God has promised that greater things are yet to come. We are here to be part of bringing God's greater things to bear upon the people of Angier.
Angier, this is our promise to you. We will serve selflessly for the good of individuals, families, and our town.
In the love of Jesus,

Each spring we host a Free Yard Sale to help individuals and families in our community who are struggling financially.
We take up donations (toys, furniture, clothing, appliances, tool, etc. in good condition) and then we give it to those in need. It is amazing how much of a blessing this event has been in the lives of so many.
Our next Free Yard Sale is scheduled for Spring 2017
We're excited to have the privilege of helping to raise the next generation. Toward that end Anthem Church has adopted Angier Elementary School (AES). We regularly volunteer at AES providing assistance to help teachers accomplish their great work of educating our children. We are happy to partner with AES to be a positive influence in the lives of children.
To learn more about our work at AES email Jimmy Baughan at email@example.com.
Our A-Teams (small groups) offer us a place where we can gather with others, enjoy fellowship, and do Bible study. Our A-Teams also provide an opportunity for us to be involved in our community.
Jesus said, "Love your neighbor." Our A-Teams are actively involved in our community, always looking for ways to serve and be a blessing in our town.
To join an A-Team email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each Thanksgiving we join with several other churches in Angier to provide a free and hot Thanksgiving meal to those in our town who may not otherwise be able to enjoy a Thanksgiving meal.
The meal takes place at the Angier Depot from 6:00-8:00 pm the Wednesday evening before Thanksgiving Thursday.
It is a wonderful privilege to serve the people in our town.
In the Spring we partner with several other local churches in Angier and blitz our town with service projects. We call this Operation Inasmuch (taken from Matthew 25:40 NKBV).
On this day we share the love of Christ in very practical and tangible ways - washing storefronts, power-washing side walks, cleaning public areas, helping the elderly, etc.
As Christians we are called to be the hands and feet of Jesus, and it's a pleasure to set a day apart to work with other churches in order to be a blessing to the people in Angier.
As we go through life, we face many challenges. Fortunately, we don't have to face those difficult times alone. God loves us deeply and genuinely cares about the trials that come our way.
God desires to help us. Two of the great means by which we receive His help are through prayer and through His people. God wants to hear our prayers. Often, the only thing standing in the way of better times is asking Christians to pray on our behalf. We would consider it a privilege to pray for you. Simply share your prayer request with us by emailing us at email@example.com.
At Anthem Church we have gifted Christian men and women who are willing to lend an ear and provide Godly wisdom and biblical advice. We are not here to judge. Our hope is to provide a little help and guidance to others. If you prefer, you can a schedule time to meet with Pastor Rick. To speak to someone, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Crepe Myrtle Festival, organized by the Angier Chamber of Commerce, is a big event in the life of Angier. The Festival offers us a great opportunity to connect with folks in Angier who may be looking for a church.
At the Crepe Myrtle Festival we put up a tent, offer free face painting for children, and sell candied bacon.
Our pastor, Rick Gutierrez, serves on the Angier Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors. The Chamber organizes the Crepe Myrtle Festival.
Anthem Church also helps festival vendors to pack up at the end of the event and we help to clean up the town Depot Square.
During Angier's "Christmas on the Square" town celebration (when the town Christmas tree is lit), we help to present a living nativity scene.
People enjoy a hayride that carries them from town hall to Jack Marley Park where different scenes from the Bible are acted out.
The living nativity scene is put on by several local churches working together to share the true story and message of Christmas.
