Current Opportunities to Serve

Family Promise

Highland will be hosting families experiencing homelessness November 17 - 24 through the Family Promise program. We will provide hospitality, transportation, and meals to families that week and need a large team of volunteers to help make that happen.

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.

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.

This group's work is on-going, recently including trips to Ocracoke after Hurricane Dorian. Interested in supporting their work or joining their team? Contact team leader Cullen Whitley.
