Horizon Happenings 
 
SOUPERBOWL SUNDAY JANUARY 26
Horizon Church’s annual Souper Bowl luncheon will be on Sunday January 26, 2020, immediately following the morning service. Bring your favorite soup or chili, along with the following based on your last name…last name A-L: salad, bread, or veggie tray; last name M-Z: dessert. Just bring your food to the side kitchen door, and we will handle things from there.
This annual event is a great opportunity for us to fellowship together, but also a wonderful opportunity to invite your friends for some great down home cookin’. Just tell your friends you would like to invite them to a very good lunch on Sunday, January 26, 2020, and they might as well come to church with you. Invited guests do not need to bring food. We look forward to seeing you there.
PS: In the past, one or two people have brought Mac N’ Cheese instead of soup or chili. Those seem to always go pretty quickly with the younger children that come, so this year three people can sign up to bring Mac N Cheese instead of bringing soup or chili. So please sign up if you prefer to bring Mac N’ Cheese instead of soup or chili, and it can be brought in a casserole dish if you prefer as we have some heating trays to keep them warm. Sign up HERE for Mac N Cheese.

SEEN AND HEARD PARENT CONFERENCE We all want to be seen and heard. Our technology saturated culture aids parents and children alike in connecting and sharing with each other, friends, and family. With all the good technology brings, there are also risks and pitfalls. Join us February 1, 2020 for an energizing day with Walt Mueller of the Center for Parent/Youth Understanding (CPYU). In the morning he will walk us through the natural development processes of adolescents, noting our culture’s intentional marketing techniques to capture the desires of our children. After a catered lunch, Walt will uncover some of the hidden ways technology affects us and our children, while also showing us ways to be faithful followers of Christ in a digital community.    

Seen and Heard Conference, February 1, 2020, 9 am – 3 pm at Clemson Presbyterian Church.  Cost is $40 per couple/ $25 per individual. Lunch is provided. Intended for parents of all ages.  Sign up and pay HERE. For questions, please contact Cheley McDowell: cheley@horizonchurch.org.
