We take the commandment to "Love Thy Neighbor" very seriously. We do love our neighbors, neighborhood and community! We engage in a number of community outreach programs as host and run some events at the church.
Easter Egg "Drop" Hunt
Horizon offers everyone hot dogs, cotton candy, popcorn, homemade baked goods, fire truck tours, a basket raffle , and of course, thousands of candy filled eggs! We need to extend a big THANK YOU to the Allentown Fire Company, as they sent a ladder truck to our church building, and dropped eggs from high above!
Trick or Treat Night
Since 2008, Horizon has been setting up at table in our neighborhood to "Light the Night" during the annual Trick or Treat night. This is a great way for us to share God's love with our neighborhood through giving away candy, pop corn, glow sticks, cider, and hot coffee. It also gives a great chance for us to interact with hundreds of our neighbors in one fun evening!
Horizon does not exist in a vacuum. We are part of the body of Christ that extends all over the world. We have selected the following local ministries to come along side, and partner with.

The Truth for Women Center exists to transform women from the inside out by confronting life issues through support, education and advocacy. Their vision is to be a catalyst in the authentic transformation of women, offering individualized support which goes beyond the woman and impacts the community.Horizon has supported Truth for Women Center financially and prayerfully as they purchased their Truth Home. The children of Horizon are currently raising money to purchase Bibles for the Truth Home. We continue to explore how Horizon can be more involved with Truth for Women Center in the future.
