Since (and even before) its launch on September 11, 2022, Anastasis Fellowship Church (AFC) has been seeking to make a difference in the Antietam Valley! We meet in the Antietam Valley Recreation and Community Center, right in the heart of this beautiful community!
Pastor Larry Baker and several church members have knocked on over 6,000 doors in Antietam Valley, where he has done surveys to learn about the community’s needs and members have shared about our church’s events. We’ve had the opportunity to pray for several residents who were facing loss or difficulty. We care about Antietam Valley!
AFC has collected school supplies for Mt. Penn Elementary School, given away Christmas backpacks filled with toys and essentials to local residents and vital non-profits, and otherwise has served at a variety of neighborhood events, including the community yard sale, Trunk or Treats, the Easter egg hunt, Farmer’s Markets, Family Fun Nights, Fall Festivals, and so much more! We love the Antietam Valley!
Would you like to join us?
Our Sunday morning format is super simple. We gather together at 10:30 a.m. for a church service, during which, we sing worship songs, we pray, we listen to a message from Pastor Larry, who teaches us from the Bible, and we consider how to apply these truths to our lives. Children 5th grade and under are invited to participate in worship and then are dismissed for their own age-appropriate lessons, which includes Bible stories, crafts, games and more. After our services, we often hang out with each other, enjoying each other’s friendship. Please join us Sunday mornings at 10:30 a.m. at 905 Byram Street (see map) in Reading!
