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.  

Giving Tree:  The Annual Giving Tree is starting a bit early this year!   Because we are distributing gifts during the “One Starry Night” children’s event on December 4, the Giving Tree will begin collecting gifts early this year.   Since September, we have been working with local school staff to determine children who are in need; we are honored to be able to provide for these families.   If you would like to bless one of these children, stop by the Connection Point (at Wausau, Weston, Merrill campus) to pick up an ornament November 7, and 14, or until they are gone.  Gifts need to be brought in no later than Sunday, November 21.   If you are unable to stop by the Connection Point, but would like to participate, or if you have questions, please contact Janna Janke at .  **For the Marathon Campus, please contact Jeanine McCain or Pastor Brian Whitaker at for details

Thanksgiving Food Baskets:  This season can leave many families in our area in need.  With your help, we would love to bless these families with some essential food  and personal hygiene items.  Please consider joining our One Way and G180 students to provide much needed food and Thanksgiving baskets to some of our attenders and local families.  Items need to be brought to either the Merrill, Wausau or Weston Campus no later than Wednesday, November 17.  For a list of items to donate click here.  We are thankful for your donations!  Questions:  Please contact Janna Janke @ .

 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.
