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.  

Make a Difference Day!  On Saturday, October 23, join our Young Adults and Men’s Ministry in “GOING” to rake leaves during the annual “Make a Difference Day”!  Bring your rakes and your servant heart, and be ready to help those who are unable to help themselves by raking their yard.  Teams will gather at the Wausau campus (time to be announced) for a time of devotion and to receive raking assignments.  Register to help by visiting our Facebook page, or contact Janna Janke at .  If you or someone you know is unable to do their fall raking, please contact Janna at  to learn more.

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 a gift tag beginning Sunday, October 31, 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

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.
