NHF’s Birthday: State of the Church
Each year on the first weekend of March, NHF celebrates its birthday with a “State of the Church” message, conveying the vision and purpose of New Horizons Fellowship, including highlights of the previous year.
On the Thursday evening before Easter, New Horizons offers a special service to reflect on Jesus’ Last Supper with his disciples before being crucified.
NHF provides two premarital seminars each year, typically in spring and fall, for couples seeking to be married by a New Horizons Fellowship staff pastor.
Each Mother’s Day, NHF offers an opportunity to participate in parent/child dedication. This dedication allows parents to commit to raising their children to know God and His word, and gives the members and attenders of New Horizons Fellowship an opportunity to voice their intent to assist parents in achieving that goal.
Vacation Bible School
Each summer, kids age 4 to grade 5 enjoy a fun-filled experience and learn more about God. Each year’s theme is different. Information about registration and volunteer signup is provided a month prior to the event.
Each year hundreds of kids in this community head back to school without the proper supplies. In the summer, NHF gathers school supplies for kids in need. To participate, select a tag from the school bus display in the lobby and gather that item in the quantity requested. Bring your school supplies back to NHF by the indicated deadline and they will be distributed to meet the needs of local students.
Community Thanksgiving Celebration
The Wednesday evening before Thanksgiving, New Horizons holds a community-wide celebration to give thanks for God’s presence in our lives. In addition to worship songs, prayer and communion, there is an “open mic” element to allow individuals to share their stories.
The Christmas Store
In mid-December, New Horizons leads and hosts this event designed to provide gifts to children of local families in need. In partnership with other churches and corporations, NHF gathers toys, solicits volunteers, interviews potential clients and creates an entirely FREE shopping experience. Refreshments are served, children are cared for, gifts selected by parents are wrapped and delivered to their cars. God’s love meeting everyday needs is at the heart of every aspect of The Christmas Store.
Christmas Eve Celebrations
Each Christmas Eve, New Horizons Fellowship offers Celebrations. This year, they take place at 5:30pm and 7:30pm.
Family Night Events
Throughout the year, New Horizons offers family nights– free events for all ages, such as Movie Nights, Bounce Nights, Parents’ Night Out, or other activities.
