What Can You Do?

 

Come to Worship:  We dress casually at Horizon Presbyterian Church.  Come and worship with us at 9 am on Sunday.  Children and infants are welcome.  Our nursery staff are trained and prepared to care for the little ones.  Children are welcome in worship and may leave after the Children’s Sermon for Sunday School.  Plan to stay for coffee and pastries after worship.  We are a friendly group and want to get to know you.
 
Enroll at God’s Garden:  The preschool has openings for 2, 3, and 4 year old children.  Parents, come and take a tour of our Christian preschool, talk to our teachers, and meet the administrative staff and preschool Director.  For more information about God’s Garden Preschool and Child Development Center, click here or call the office at 480.460.0081. 
 
Join a Small Group:  Adults, we have small groups meeting after worship on Sundays and during the week.  This is a great way to get to know people at Horizon while learning more about our faith and how better to become disciples of Jesus Christ.  Check the weekly announcements or monthly calendar to find a small group.  Don’t see what you are looking for?  Consider starting a small group of your own.  We have people and resources to help you get started.
 
Join the Youth Group:  If you are a middle- or high-schooler, join with other Horizon youth for fun, fellowship, and making a difference in the lives of others in our area and around the world.  Contact our youth guy, Joel Siken, at joel@horizonchurch.com
 
Come to a Mission Event:  Check the monthly calendar or the weekly announcements.  There is always a mission activity going on at Horizon.  Need more information?  Call the church office at 480.460.1480.
 
Phoenix Rescue Mission - We serve a meal at PRM in downtown Phoenix every month.  We take food, toiletries and clothing donated by the Horizon community to PRM so that they are better prepared to care for the homeless in the Phoenix area.
 
Matthew’s Crossing Food Bank – The food bank serves more than 3,500 people each month from their location in Chandler.  Many are people living in Ahwatukee and the Foothills who do not have sufficient food.  We take food to Matthew’s Crossing to help alleviate hunger in our local area.
 
Gideon’s International – About once a year, a member of the Gideon’s joins in worship to remind us of the important work of distributing the Bible to people who do not know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.  During the visit, we have an opportunity for a free-will offering to support the work of Gideon’s International.
 
Feed My Starving Children – More than 6,000 children die every day from starvation or the effects of malnutrition.  FMSC is an NGO that sends more than 300 million meals to feed children in more than 70 countries.  FMSC has a large packing site in Mesa, and Horizon sends 25-35 people to pack food about four times each year.  Children as young as five years old are welcome.

Amor Ministries – Amor has built more than 17,000 single room homes in Mexico and on Native American lands during the past 30 years.  Horizon has sent a team to Puerto Penasco every year since 1999 to build a house in three days.  The mission team of 25 or so is made up equally of youth and adults.
 
HOI, Inc. – HOI operates a ranch and medical clinics in eastern Honduras and has been conducting medical care, public works, and educational programs for more than 30 years.  Horizon sends a mission team of 15 every three years, and the teams build latrines, lay concrete floors, and repair roofs and chimneys in small rural villages.  We also get to conduct Bible school for the children in the one-room village schools. 
 
International Needs, Inc. – IN operates in 30 countries around the world where the Christian church is under political, economic, or religious pressure.  We have heard speakers from Romania, Turkey, and Egypt, who keep us informed about the work of the church in places that are so different from the US.  A small group from Horizon traveled to Turkey in 2014 to tour first century Christian church sites and meet and pray with Turkish Christians.  We are blessed to be a blessing as we remember these fellow Christians in our prayers and provide financial support to their churches.
