The proposed budget for next year can be viewed by clicking here.
The Board of Trustees represents the congregation for many decisions, but certain key decisions are reserved for Horizon members. We hold Congregational Meetings twice a year to fulfill these duties and to make necessary decisions. When you attend our May 21 Congregational Meeting, you will vote on how our money is spent and hear from our five Circle Coordinators. You will also elect new Trustees and Nominating Committee members. Please reserve May 21st on your calendars for this important meeting.
Horizon Ministers Education Fund
Thanks to a generous donation from Gordon and Patsy Roe, Horizon can establish a Ministers Education Fund. The purpose of this fund is to provide financial support to members of Horizon and members of other Unitarian Universalist congregations pursuing a graduate course of study towards the Unitarian Universalist ministry or pursuing appropriate post-baccalaureate certification in a profession serving the UU mission (i.e., Lifespan Religious Education Director, Chaplaincy, etc.).
In the past, Horizon has supported members Jessica Purple Rodela and Frieda Gillespie, who are both currently serving UU congregations. The church also has a strong legacy as a teaching church, having mentored 10 ministerial interns including Rev. Lora. The establishment of the Horizon Ministers Education Fund is a testament to our history of supporting Unitarian Universalist religious professionals and an investment in the future of our faith. If you would like to donate to the fund, please contact Lora.

Rev. Lora Brandis & Rev. Pamela Wat
A Compassion is threatening to the ego. We might think of it as something warm and soothing, but actually it's very raw."
- Pema Chodron
We are participating with more than 400 UU congregations worldwide in a teach-in on racism and white supremacy. This call to action and worship comes from a growing network of UUs – religious professionals and lay leaders from both within and outside congregations – led by UUs of color and white UUs working together. The teach-in portion will take place May 7th. Denton UU Fellowship minister the Rev. Pamela Wat will join Rev. Lora for the preach-in portion here on the 21st and in Denton on the 28th of May.
