Community Involvement

Community Involvement

Highland Community Church strives to make an impact in and around the Wausau, Weston,  Marathon, and Merrill communities.  We encourage our staff and our attenders to be active and participate in local events.  

School Supply Drive:  Our effort to support local school age children is underway!  Beginning August 1, bring your donated school supplies and clothing items to the Connection Point (all campuses).  The list of specific items is available for you.  For further information please refer to the August Highland Happenings or contact Janna Janke at

Feed My Starving Children:  For the first time, Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) is coming to Highland Community Church (Wausau Campus).  FMSC is a faith-based, charitable nonprofit organization that hand packs nutritional meals specifically designed to assist in reversing and preventing undernutrition. These meals have reached people in over 100 countries! The need is heightened given current world events. For example, FMSC typically distributes 2 million meals a year to Ukraine, but next year they hope to provide over 12 million. They can’t divert meals from other countries in need, so in light of this, they are preparing to do more meals than any previous year. All meals are packed by volunteers, and that’s where YOU come in. HCC’s MobilePack event is on November 4 and 5, 2022. This is an opportunity to volunteer and serve alongside your church family as well as other community members. We will have several two-hour shifts available over the two days.  HCC members will have early access to sign up for the event (September 16 through the 24).  After that, we will open up the sign-up to the general public. More information to come closer to the event.

Highland Prayer Warriors:  Did you know Highland supports 41 different missionaries locally, nationally, and internationally?  As we continue to support these missionaries, you can partner with them to support and encourage them right from your home!  Consider becoming a prayer partner.  For more information please contact Janna Janke @ .

Bridge Street Mission has opportunities to serve alongside them to engage, encourage, and edify hurting, homeless, and needy men and women, equipping them with the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ to become the people God created them to be.  Opportunities range from making meals, assisting at events,  and picking up donations.  For more information please reach out to Linda Gottschalk at (715) 551-7929.
