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 for the week's meeting place as the locations are subject to change. Everyone is welcome! Bring family and friends.

Horizon Dinners

3rd Saturdays

Join members for dinner. Be a host or a guest for a potluck-style gathering. Horizon Dinners is one of the best ways to make connections with others. When you join the group, you'll just provide your name, contact info, and any relevant information such as allergies, can't drive far, etc.
At the beginning of each month, you'll receive an e-mail asking if you are available to attend and/or host for that month. Once all the responses are in, the groups are set and e-mailed out about a week in advance of the dinners. Hosts and guests communicate, with the host setting the time to meet, and everyone else volunteering for what they'll plan to bring.

Dinners are intended as adult gatherings, with an opportunity to get to know fellow Horizon members better in a relaxed setting. We make an effort to re-shuffle the groups as much as possible, so you'll be getting together with different people each month.  The more people involved, the more people you get to meet, so join in the fun!
