Anthem Camarillo is part a family of churches helping people find their way back to God. The Anthem family of churches is united around shared mission, vision, values, and submission to the Lordship of King Jesus. In our cities, we are working to obey Jesus in helping people find their way back to God.
Often we feel like there is not enough time to be in the word daily. We want to equip you with tools to daily engage with God in his Word. We also want to do this as a community! Community Bible Reading (CBR) is not so much a sprint through the Bible but a way to create a daily rhythm in God's word. Download the 2021 plan below!
It's a great time to join a Community Group! Community groups meet together each week for discussion from the Scriptures, prayer, and connection.
You can check out the days and times of our groups below. When your request to join a group you will be reached out to by one of the Community Group Leaders.

Childcare will be provided in the gym for the meeting portion from 12:00-1:30pm. We look forward to being with you on that day!

Wild Wonder Creation Care Camp
What: Wild Wonder Creation Care Camp
When: July 25-29, 8:45am-12:15pm
Who: Kids TK-4th grade and friends
Where: Nancy Bush Park / Camarillo
Why: The wonder we feel when we look at something beautiful leads us to care for it. In the same vein, we value and care for the things we know, so there is an emphasis in Year Two on getting to know our specific place and learning the names of the birds, the plants, and the people that are local to us. Christian creation care is also hopeful. It allows us to ask the question, “How might I bless creation? How might I bless the Lord?” Year Two is all about exploring hopeful ways to care for creation while also discovering how deeply the Father cares for us.
If you are new to Wild Wonder, don't worry! Your child does not need to have attended Year 1 to delight in Year 2.
Cost: $30 per child / $90 family cap (please contact Lauren Amaro at email@example.com if your family needs a scholarship for camp)
