What To Expect
Visiting a church for the first time can be intimidating. Where do you go? What do you wear? Will anything be expected of you? Will my kids be taken care of?
Take a look at some Frequently Asked Questions below. Our goal at Horizon is to help you feel more comfortable when you show up. And remember, we’re glad you came!
Frequently Asked Questions at Horizon
What time should I be there?
We offer two service times — 9:30 & 11 AM. During both of our services, we offer engaging, safe, fun children’s programs where they will learn about the Word of God and God’s love for them. If you have kids, we recommend coming 15 minutes early to allow for check in time and to grab a treat on the way in.
Where do I park?
There is no reserved parking so feel free to park anywhere that is open. Horizon has many spaces in front of and behind the building. Also, please feel free to park at neighboring business parking spaces (Horizon has parking agreements with our neighbors to the east and west of our campus). The lot to the east is a childcare office and to the west are dental and medical offices.
Where do I go?
Horizon is located at 2025 E. Prater Way Sparks, NV. As you enter our main doors into the lobby, feel free to grab some free pastries and coffee. Entrance to main auditorium opens at 9:30 AM and church begins at 10 AM.
Where do I sit?
There is no assigned seating or reserved spots, so please sit wherever you feel comfortable.
What’s service like?
You will find your time at Horizon to be encouraging, inspiring and even fun. From the music to the message, we believe that God has a purpose and a plan for each of us, and we have a good time time enjoying God and each other. A morning worship experience is typically 65-70 minutes.
What does the speaker talk about?
Our focus is Jesus and our manual is the Bible. Our goal is for you to leave encouraged and knowing that God is good and He’s in a good mood. We want you to know that through Jesus, you can live a victorious life no matter your current situation. Every week you will hear a message that pertains to your life and how there is an answer found in Jesus.
Do I have to give money?
We don’t ask anything from you as a visitor. You are our guest and we simply want you to be blessed by our service! But many also enjoy financially being a part of what God is doing in the city and world wide through Horizon.
What should I wear?
Wear what is comfortable. At Horizon you will see people in suits and dresses as well as shorts and jeans. No matter what you wear, we want you here with us.
What if I have kids?
Infants-5 years old stay in the main building in our new woodland themed Horizon Kids area. When entering the main doors just head to your right and you will see our kids area. There you will check in your child. All of our teachers are background checked and trained to give your child an amazing experience. Children in 1st through 6th grade are invited to Kids Church in our building next door. Parents will check them in for a time of fun and learning about God’s love for them. Children are always welcome in our main service.
What about for my teens?
6th-8th graders join the main service for the music and announcements. After announcements they are dismissed to Fuel, our middle school teaching time. Fuel meets in the Ministry Center. After church, students are released to return to their parents. Students in 9th-12th grade are a vital part of our Sunday morning services.
What if my child needs me?
When you check in your child, they will be given a sticker with their name and a number and you will be given a sticker with the same number. If your child needs you at any time, the number will flash in the corner of our large screens in our main auditorium so you will know you are needed.
