New Horizons Presbyterian Church
Who are we? We are an active, committed group of Christians who have recently merged two congregations to form a stronger vital fellowship. We are located in an inner suburb of St. Louis, about two miles south of Lambert International Airport. Many of our members live within three miles of the church, but others drive 20-30 minutes to be a part of this dynamic worshiping and serving community of believers. We are a mixed age congregation that is seeking to be a strong presence in our community through effective neighborhood outreach.
What do Presbyterians believe? The Presbyterian Church (USA) is part of the Reformed family of Christians who place emphasis on the sovereignty of God, the authority of the scripture, justification by grace through faith and the priesthood of all believers. It is everyone's job - ministers and lay people alike - to share this Good News with the whole world. That is why the Presbyterian church is governed at all levels by a combination of clergy and laity, men and women. For the Spiritual Growth of the congregation, meaningful worship services are a key element. Jesus Christ has called his disciples to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, and free the oppressed. We are committed to follow this calling in our congregation, our community, and the world at large. Critical to the success of our vision is the active participation by each member.
How can I join your church? Become a part of our worshiping community, attend orientation classes, meet with our Session (the ruling board), and stand before the congregation to state your beliefs, by answering the following questions: Who is your Lord and Savior? Will you be Christ’s faithful disciple, obeying his Word and showing his love? Will you be a faithful member of this congregation, share in its worship and ministry through your prayers and gifts, your study and service, and so fulfill your calling to be a disciple of Jesus Christ?
Come join us every Sunday Morning, Service starts at 10:30 am. Sunday School from September through May at 9 am. We have time for fellowship immediately following worship. Our building is fully accessible with an interior elevator and exterior entrance ramp. Or, you can always stop by during our office hours Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 8:30am - 2pm.
