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 will begin on October 30!  Because we are distributing gifts during a Family Christmas Event on December 10, the Giving Tree  will begin on October 30 and will run through November 20.   Since September, we have been working with local school staff to determine children who are in need—and 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 all campuses to pick up a gift tag on Sunday, October 30, November 6 or 13, 20 or until they are gone.  Gifts need to be brought in no later than Sunday, November 20.  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 .

Feed My Starving Children: Registration is full for the November 4 - 5 event at Highland, however you can still donate to cover the expenses incurred to bring this incredible opportunity to Highland.   The cost of the food is $30,000 which Highland has committed, with the hope that many in our congregation will offset this expense.  If you desire to help offset these costs, please give directly to Highland.  Gifts should be made out to HCC with FMSC in the memo area.   

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.
