Horizons magazine provides information, inspiration and education from the perspectives of women who are committed to Christ, the church and faithful discipleship. Horizons brings current issues dealing with family life, the mission of the church and the challenges of culture and society to its readers. Interviews, feature articles, Bible study resources and departments offer help and insight for up-to-date, day-to-day concerns of the church and individual Christians.
A Bible study is produced every year for individual or small-group study. Written by leading theologians and pastors in the Reformed tradition, it provides contemporary research and background information along with probing questions for what the texts have to say to us today. Use Bible studies from previous years to pursue your own questions and interests.
The publications produced by Horizons follow a 130-year tradition of publishing by women in the Presbyterian Church. By subscribing to Horizons, you're helping to keep that publishing tradition alive; without the Presbyterian women who subscibe and engage with Horizons, this resource would disappear.
Horizons is published by Presbyterian Women for the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). The purpose statement for Presbyterian Women is
