Serving Others

Highland Methodist is transforming lives by demonstrating Jesus' love and making Him known through serving others. 

One way you can serve your community is by taking part in our Monthly Mission Meals. More info below.

M3: Monthly Mission Meal

Join us every second Wednesday at 5:30 in the Fellowship Hall for our Monthly Mission Meal. Learn about organizations beyond the walls of Highland Methodist and how you can make a difference by partnering with them. Our next Monthly Mission Meal is February 14, supporting the Brighton Center. Proceeds from the meal will support women learning self-sufficiency and culinary skills as they recover from addiction. RSVP to reserve your spot!

Youth Mission Trip

In July 2015 the Highland Methodist youth spent a week serving at a food pantry called the Apple Patch in Louisville, KY.

 

Sixteen Youth and two adults travelled to Pawley's Island, South Carolina in June 2014 for a week long mission in the impoverished neighborhoods there. We worked on a lovely woman's home building a new screened in porch and painting the whole home. We also ran entirely a VBS at "Teach My People" a local Christian Youth Center. We worked hard and were happy with all that we were able to do in the name of Jesus.

 


Women's Circles

United Methodist Women (UMW) has a long tradition of supporting missions at Highland Methodist.  


Circle 13 is known for being creative and crafty using their hot glue guns and kitchens to create delightful Christmas crafts and delicious fudge to sell annually during the holiday season. Children are always delighted by the craft sale at the yearly Thanksgiving dinner! In addition, these faithful women host a biannual "Trash and Treasure" garage sale raising hundreds of dollars for missions. These friends love to laugh together and newcomers have no trouble jumping right into their fellowship!


Circle 5: Sisters of Lydia is very prayerful and members are very active servants of Christ. These gals enjoy meeting over lunch hour and sharing life's joys and challenges. Each month, needs are chosen to support in the life of our church or community. Also, this group loves to host individuals from various community organizations to learn more from them such as Mercy Maternity Home, Ronald McDonald House and Family Promise.
