Horizon Community Church began when two churches partnered together to reach the surrounding community for Christ. Lee Memorial Baptist began in 1984 and Sunrise Community Church began in 2000, both with a heart for the Western Branch of Chesapeake and surrounding cites. On February 1, 2010, the two churches combined and officially became Horizon Community Church.
