After a divorce in 2003 when I was entering my senior years, I moved away from the friends and places I was familiar with to Plano to become part of an extended family household. I was shaken by these events, and, at the time, had no church community to help me soften the blow and explore new pathways. My granddaughters urged me to take them to visit a Unitarian Universalist church they had been told about by their school mates and we visited Horizon in October of 2004. I was called the next day by a dear lady named Lucy, and when we came again the next Sunday, another wonderful woman named Marty greeted us and remembered us from the Sunday before. The handshakes and smiles of almost everyone who saw us there stuck with me and I visited again and again. I was moved by the music and soon joined the choir, and it took several Sundays before I changed from being moved to tears every Sunday by the welcoming assurances of Rev. Dennis Hamilton’s words, to smiles of expectation every time I entered the worship hall at Horizon. I have since became a member of this enveloping community and have come back to life as I joined in the challenging conversation of the Adult Religious Education classes, and responded to requests for volunteering at various tasks and on various committees. I am so glad to be a part of an outreaching church with a strong social action group and many small Chalice groups where one can find a free interchange of ideas as well as support when it is needed. I am filled with gratitude at the acceptance and encouragement I have found here. The welcome my ideas for our membership pathway have received, my development of our enthusiastic involvement in the annual Gay Pride Parade in Dallas, my input during my three years on the best Board I have ever been a part of all go to remind me how growth and fulfillment include giving as well as receiving. I encourage anyone seeking to find a direction to a more satisfying, giving, purposeful life to visit Horizon multiple times to get the full scope of what one can find there, and how one can learn to give again. Horizon UU is a growing, loving community. Come get to know us!
If you are seeking a religious community that accepts different beliefs, where it’s OK to explore your spiritual path in your own way, with guidance and company from others on their own journeys, I recommend Horizon Unitarian Universalist Church.
I grew up attending a loving, nurturing, Methodist church. Still I had questions that my religious upbringing did not answer to my satisfaction. I also had ideas about religion that didn’t fit with how I was raised. A friend suggested I try a Unitarian Universalist (UU) church (www.uua.org). The first time I attended one in Austin, TX, I realized I had been a UU all along without knowing it.
When I moved to the DFW area in 1996, and experienced the friendliness, fun, and thought provoking ideas at Horizon, I knew it would be my new church home.
Horizon is family friendly. Its religious education program has nurtured and affirmed my children’s sense of identity, self-esteem, and tolerance. It has encouraged the development of their own religious values while providing them community and fellowship.
Sunday services are inspirational. Our minister is excellent, but if I happen to disagree with him, it is no problem. That’s because we practice a free pulpit—the minister is free to state his beliefs, and a free pew–congregants are free to have differing beliefs. As early Unitarian Francis David said, “We need not think alike to love alike.” Although our beliefs are diverse, a common set of principles unites us.
Involvement in one or more of the groups, classes, and committees is key to getting to know the interesting, intelligent, and creative people at Horizon. There is a Buddhist Sangha, a UU Christian group, and an Earth Centered Spirituality group among others, and many opportunities to practice social action. I enjoy the Women’s Friendship in Growth (WFIG) group. The Men’s Support Group means a lot to my husband, and we like the groups that play games.
Horizon is a healthy, upbeat, mid size church, not too large or too small. Like any church, it is not perfect. Things don’t always run smoothly. With its vibrant atmosphere, however, no wonder it is growing!
It may not be for everyone, but anyone who visits Horizon is sure to be welcomed warmly, and like me, you may find your church home here.
I love this church. The members are friendly and thoughtful. You are welcome and encouraged to build your own theology. Inquiring minds will feel at home here.
Had great time at Horizon uu today for the welcoming of the flowers with my BFF Beth.
