Current Opportunities to Serve

Rise Against Hunger, April 28

Rise Against Hunger (formerly Stop Hunger Now) seeks to end hunger in our lifetime by providing food and life-changing aid to the world’s most vulnerable and creating a global commitment to mobilize the necessary resources.  One way they do that is through meal-packing events where volunteers package thousands of simple, nutritious meals to be shipped to partners in countries around the world.  We've met our $10,000 goal to pack more than 35,000 meals in one day, on April 28.  Now we just need people of all ages and abilities to come pack meals -- sign up today!  Click here to sign-up or contribute..

Family Promise

Highland will welcome families currently experiencing homelessness for the week of April 26 - May 6.  A team of over 60 volunteers helps make this hospitality possible: providing meals, driving the van, overnight hosting, playing with kids, setting up and cleaning up.  Sign up online or at church on Sunday mornings after services. If you have questions, please contact Janine Wood by e-mail or 919-606-7328.

Hygiene Kits for CWS
The Moms' Sunday School Class is packing hygiene kits for Church World Service (CWS), the same agency that sponsors the CROP Walk.  After last year's hurricane season, the supply of such emergency kits is very low.  The group hopes to pack 50 kits on Wednesday, May 2 following dinner.  Willing to help provide supplies?  Click here to sign-up for hygiene kit items. Questions about how to help? Contact Lori Cole.

Community Garden

Highland United Methodist Church Community Victory Garden is now open for gardening each Saturday, weather permitting, beginning 9 AM. We will be preparing the soil, and planting cold-hardy vegetables. If you are not on the e-mail contact list for the garden, but would like to help out, send email Donna Wolcott, and she’ll keep you posted. Everybody is welcome, no matter their level of experience. Learn more about our garden here.

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. Charlie Baber for more information.

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
