New Horizons Ministry

NewHorizons

New Horizons is about entering a time in life
for new discoveries 
and expansion
of dreams we held for years
and have not yet become a reality. 

 

 

THIS New Horizons MINISTRY WILL GROW ONLY THROUGH THE DISCERNMENT and PRAYER OF THE ENTIRE CONGREGATION OF Palm West Community Church. 

New Horizons exists to activate, develop and apply God’s new life for those in the second half of life. Through small groups, social events, our monthly Gathering and much more, you’ll find resources and encouragement on your continued journey.  

Our Church demographic are changing: According to our church database, our church now has 75 people (members or regular attenders) who are part of the Baby Boomer generation. And this number will only increase.

 Our Priorities: 

  • Connect: for fun and fellowship
  • Grow: to learn and mentor
  • Care: to touch and help
  • Service: to invest and reach out
