The Householder Matthew 13:51-52
Looks like things are getting uderway!
Pastor Jerry presented a prioritized list of "facility projects" that can be found on our website (mynewhorizons.org) Click on the 2021 Bylaws tab. Work has begun on a couple of the projects. If you would like to be involved, we can always use the talent, time, & resources you have available. We do need donations to the building fund to complete the Community Room (gym) carpet and lighting.
WE ARE SO CLOSE TO FULLY FUNDING THE CARPET & LIGHTING PROJECTS OF THE COMMUNITY ROOM (gym)! $2100 for the carpet, $994 for the lighting. LOOK FOR A WAY TO GIVE BEYOND YOUR TITHE & REGULAR OFFERING TO GET THESE PRIORITIZED PROJECTS COMPLETED. Thankyou. Gifts of any size will be so helpful. Anyone who'd like to just cover it (or even a greater portion of it) so we can move on to our other projects...make it happen and we will praise the Lord with you for making it possible!
All donations should be marked for the BUILDING FUND, whether on-line using our Faithlife Giving tab or by check or by dropping off a bar of gold! =)
A Note from Pastor Jerry!
YES! I love a good story, don't you? Jesus did a lot of teaching about living the life we are called to and what we can expect, through story-telling. I hope you can take the walk with us this summer @ NHCC. We will journey with Jesus and the words he shared to those who would follow him and truly hear the Word of Life!
This Sunday, we'll start with the question, "WHY PARABLES?" What's the power of a parable? How should we understand them? Do they really apply to me?
Let me warn you: studying the parables is like exposing yourself to a laser beam! It is a dangerous thing to approach our Lord's parables with a careless attitude. We will deal with subjects that none of us can afford to treat lightly: salvation, forgiveness of others, lover for minority groups, the right and wrong use of money, prayer, motives for serving, and many more.
My prayer is that will will meet ourselves in Jesus' words and be better disciples for being obedient to them!
See ya Sunday!

We want to remind all who attend of these important guidelines:
- Attend ONLY if you are NOT experiencing signs of illness.
- If you've been directly exposed to someone within the last 48 hrs who has tested Covid positive.
- Minimize your risk by using personal hand sanitizer or those mounted on the wall outside the santuary and by south entrance coat rack, being conscientious of the space you give others, wear a mask if you so desire, and cover any cough or sneeze with a tissue, even if its just allergies.
- As another layer of protection, you may want to receive one of the vaccinations that are available. These are not required to attend worship.
We want to encourage folks to spread out in our large worship area and know that you won't be crowded. We love you and want to see you stay healthy at New Horizons Church.
