Current Opportunities to Serve

Highland’s Community Victory Garden

The garden welcomes people of all ages and skill levels to join the work of tilling, planting, and harvesting on Saturday mornings beginning at 9 AM. Contact Donna Wolcott for details.

Responding to the Plight of Migrants

United Methodists have several ways to respond to the plight of migrants:

  • Give to the Advance # 3022144 for Migration. Go to UMCOR – Global Migration for further information.
  • Join the General Board of Church and Society in our United Methodist advocacy work alongside migrants. Speak out to end child detention by sending drawings and letters from United Methodists of all ages to Congress and the White House.
  • Encourage your UMW unit to join the action plan set forth at the United Methodist Women website.
  • Speak up in support of persons in Sanctuary and the churches supporting them.

Learn more about how to act here.

Family Promise

Thanks to everyone who helped make our most recent Family Promise week a success! Mark your calendars for our next hosting week: September 1 - 8.

Disaster Response

Highland's Disaster Response Team is a uniquely-equipped group of first-responders who are able to do tree work in areas recovering from severe weather events. Partnering with Avent Ferry UMC and led by Cullen Whitley, this group has helped families all across eastern North Carolina and are often some of the first folks called when disaster strikes. This group was recently featured in a video by our North Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church.

Outreach Team

The Outreach Team helps to coordinate and equip all the people of Highland to serve as Christ's hands and feet in the world.   Contact Rev. Janet Baucom for more information.

Congregational Care

The Care Ministries team works to ensure members of the Highland community are cared for in times of need.  You can become part of the regular visitation team or be added to a call list to help when you can.  Contact Candi Scott to volunteer, or to share a request for prayer or visitation
