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!

Thanksgiving Baskets:  Highland's Children’s Ministry and G180 Youth Ministry will once again be collecting non-perishable food items for Thanksgiving Baskets on November 18.  Extra food items will be donated to local school food pantries.   Please consider donating food from this list  to support those who are hungry this holiday season.  

Giving Tree:  Consider blessing a child who may not otherwise receive a Christmas gift.  Stop by the Connection Point (at any campus) to pick up a gift tag and instructions.   If you are unable to attend services in person at this time and would like to participate in the Giving Tree Program, please email Lyn Skrzypchak at .  Tags will be available Sunday, Nov. 8, 15, and 22, or until they are gone.  Gifts need to be brought in no later than Sunday, December 6.   Questions?  Contact Janna Janke at

Highland Cares packets are still available for Highland attenders to bless a friend, neighbor, co-worker in need.  If you are interested in learning how Highland can help you provide a bag of fresh groceries and the gospel message for an individual or family please contact Janna Janke, Connections Director at
