Horizon Women and Visitors age 21+, join us during this relaxing weekend where we can throw off responsibilities and get to know ourselves and others. The annual retreat is a great place to reconnect as well as meet new friends!

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.

Begin Again (The Annual Water Service)
Rev. Lora Brandis
“Beginnings are new horizons that want to be seen; they are not regressions or repetitions. Somehow they win clearance and become fiercely free of the grip of the past. What is the new horizon in you that wants to be seen?”
– John O’Donohue
All are invited to bring a bit of water from a place that is sacred to you. Blending the waters in a common bowl, we begin the new church year united on our mission to grow spiritually healthy people who promote love and justice in the world.
