The Reality of the Resurrection
In this sermon, we look at John 20:1-23 and the hinge point of Christianity - the resurrection of Jesus. We study the evidence and the outcome of the resurrection. The reality of the resurrection changes everything.
A parable is a simple story from everyday life that explains a deeper spiritual truth. In this series, we look deeper into the parables of Jesus and learn how we can apply them to our lives.
A Story About Treasure
We begin this sermon series by delving into Matthew 13:44-46 and the Parable of the Hidden Treasure. We talk about how to live as a subject of the kingdom of heaven, giving up all that we have to gain everything.
The Naked Truth
In this sermon series, we look at how God speaks into our sexuality. If you are skeptical of the claims of Christianity, or if you have questions about what you’ve heard or been told about a Christian viewpoint on sex, this series is for you.
The Naked Truth: Sex
In this sermon, we explore Genesis 2:18-25 and its application in our lives. The Bible affirms human sexuality as a good and beautiful thing to be used in a certain way and for a certain purpose.
The Naked Truth: Singleness
In this sermon, we explore 1 Corinthians 7:25-35 and the topic of singleness. We are reminded that singleness is a gift best used to develop an undivided devotion to Christ and we are challenged to make the most of each moment.
In this sermon, we study Ephesians 5:22-33. We explore the goal of marriage and how it is meant to reflect Jesus and the church.
In this sermon series, we look into the women in Jesus’ family line. We see how they exemplify the ways God uses broken people to bring restoration into this world.
This week in "Shoutouts," we look at Joshua 2:1-14 and the life of Rahab. We are reminded that no one is beyond God's ability to use, and no one is beyond God's ability to save.
This week at Horizon Church, we talked about the story of Ruth (Ruth 1:1-18) and how it gives us an image of the loving commitment of God. We were challenged to live out this commitment in the context of community.
This week in "Shoutouts," we focus on the story of David and Bathsheba (2 Samuel 11:1-17) and how one wrong decision can lead to another. We also explore the topic of pain and how God can use our pain for a purpose. Each time we experience pain, it is an opportunity for us to step away from or towards God.
Getting Free from Shame
Getting Free from Shame
In this sermon, Pastor Kyle talks about Luke 5:1-11 and the life of Peter. He explains the effects of shame in our lives and how Jesus wants to set us free.
Pursuing the Presence
Lend Your Life (1 Samuel 1:1-28)
In the first week of our series, "Pursuing the Presence," we explore the story of Hannah and her faithfulness to look to God in the midst of her pain. We look at common counterfeit comforts and picture what it would look like if we gave every part of ourselves to Christ.
Hearing God's Voice
This week in "Pursuing the Presence," we look at 1 Samuel 3:1-21. We explore the ways that God's speaks to us and why it is important that we listen.

We continue in our series called "Be," where we look at Paul's letter to the Ephesians. We explore how our identity in Christ impacts every area of our lives, including our call to be united as one body.
BE Filled (Ephesians 3)
We continue in our series called "Be," where we look at Paul's letter to the Ephesians. We explore what it means to be filled with the Holy Spirit and how our identity in Christ impacts every area of our lives.
In this series we take a look at our seven core values that define who we are at Horizon
We kicked off our series by looking at the first of our seven values, understanding how the good news of who Jesus is and what he has done is what separates Christianity from any other belief system.
We explored the second of our core values, witness, by taking a look at a story from Jesus’ life. We value witness as both a noun and a verb – being a witness is both something you do and who you are.
This week we studied Acts 19, and talked about our need to be a Spirit-filled church made up of Spirit-filled followers of Jesus. We long to be a part of a movement in our community that can only happen by the power of the Holy Spirit moving in the lives of men and women to take risks and live boldly to show and share Jesus’ love with others.
At Horizon our vision is to be a church ‘living in light of the kingdom of Jesus’. Jesus talked often about the ‘kingdom of heaven,’ an alternate way of living here on earth that is made possible by Jesus’ life, death and resurrection. He invites his followers to join him in the work of building the kingdom of heaven here on earth, and we talked about what this means and how we can be a part of this work.
This week we looked at how to have a gospel-centered perspective of culture by studying a passage from the Israelites’ exile in Babylon. The gospel keeps us from idolizing culture and condemning culture, and instead presents a third perspective on how to relate to culture, in that we are called to engage with and bless the culture we live in.
The church is meant to be a community where anyone and everyone can belong. One biblical metaphor of this community is that of a family. Jesus invites us into the family of God, which means we ought to love one another life family. We look at a passage from 1 John and talk about the implications of becoming a part of this family.
As we wrap up our series we take a look at Jesus’ teaching on prayer in Matthew 7. Prayer is this wonderful gift we have, where we are able to speak to God, and hear Him speak. We also looked at how prayer is rooted in our identity in Christ.
