Current Opportunities to Serve

Disaster Relief Training

Join us at Highland on Saturday, January 26, 8:30 AM - 5 PM for an Early Response Training event hosted by the North Carolina Conference's Volunteers in Missions.

Our team structure has been different from other church ERT's in that up until now we we have been a technical tree crew. This training will enable us to develop a standard Early Response Team that has a specific structure and positions for doing work that includes flood abatement and reconstruction of homes. This course will certify you for 3 years. The more people that we have certified, the larger our pool of volunteers will be for any given disaster. You will receive an ERT badge and a disaster response t-shirt. Highland's missions budget is covering the cost for our volunteers.

This class is open to people of all ability levels no matter your experience with any of the tasks.  The only requirement is that you possess a passion for helping those that have been in harm's way.  This is a unique opportunity to really make a difference in our community, state and the world!

To register, please go to nccumvim.org/erttraining/.  Scroll down the site list and choose our date at Highland.  It is of utmost importance we we register as many volunteers as possible for the future sustainment of our team.

Highland Service Project

Though often associated with Highland's youth ministry, Highland Service Project is a ministry of the whole church and relies on adult participation for its success. With that in mind, we're holding an initial planning meeting on Sunday, January 27 at 5 PM in the Conference Room for any adults who have been, are, or could be interested in this vital Highland housing ministry.
