Community Involvement

Community Involvement

Highland Community Church strives to make an impact in and around the Wausau, Weston, and Marathon communities.  We encourage our staff and our attenders to be active and participate in local events.  See the bottom of the page for ongoing opportunities to serve in our community!

Here are some upcoming opportunities for you to Connect, Grow, and Go into our community.  Watch for updates as each event approaches or contact Janna Janke at  for more information. 

Coming in the near future:  Blessings in a Backpack food collection! Over 1200 local school children from 16 different schools receive a backpack with food items to take home each weekend.  Please consider donating items during the month of May to benefit hungry children.    To learn more about the Blessings in a Backpack program, and to learn how to bless children with a backpack of food, visit their website.
