After Church Lunch Bunch

after lunch bunch graphic

 

One way to get to know people from Horizon better is to join us for a casual lunch after church.  We meet at various local restaurants around 11:45 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. Check the welcome desk display or the bulletin boards outside of Horizon for the week's meeting place as the locations are subject to change. Everyone is welcome (including visitors and friends and family joining you after church).  See you there!

We meet at a restaurant most Sundays.  The 2nd Sunday of the month is usually a potluck at Horizon. We invite you to join us for those too.  There will be plenty of food!
