Current Opportunities to Serve

Fight Hunger July 8-15 Bring Food Donations

Food drive donations tend to slow down in the summer when at-risk children are out of school and still need three meals a day.  Highland is partnering with Kiwanis of Raleigh and Urban Ministries to reverse this trend.  Grab a grocery bag and fill it with healthy, non-perishable options.  Bring it to worship on July 8 or July 15.  Or to give a financial contribution, log on to urbanmin.org/donate.

Family Promise

Our next opportunity to host families experiencing homelessness from Family Promise is coming up August 5 - 12. A large team is needed to offer hospitality to our guests while they are here: providing food, playing with children, driving the van to provide transportation, staying overnight as hosts.  Click here to sign up.

Welcoming ESL Students
The next session of ESL classes hosted at Highland begins soon and we offer a small reception to welcome students on Tuesday, July 17 at 10:30 AM. If you would like to help set up, provide a small snack, or simply come and welcome students, contact Donna Wolcott for details.

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.

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
