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.  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. 

During the month of March, we will once again be supporting local schools by providing essential items for the clothing/supply pantries.  For a list of specific items please stop by the Connection Point beginning March 2.  Please return items to the Connection Point no later than Sunday, March 30.
