Highland is a very active church in supporting the missions of God’s work throughout the world. Throughout the year teams of men and women respond to emergency cleanup, rebuilding requests, and a returning to damaged neighborhoods to continue rehabilitation.
Every July upwards to 100 Highland men, women, youth and children transform lives in Mars Hill, North Carolina while adults and teens alike travel to international work sites in Central and South America. Just last year, our mission team had a successful journey to El Salvador and enhancing our partnership with the Reformed Calvinist Church of El Salvador. There they worked side-by-side with the church and community in El Limon to help the people build rooms in the church dedicated to small business development. The team saw first hand the work of Highland-supported missionary, Kristi van Nostram who is a facilitator for the Joining Hands program in El Salvador, an initiative of the Presbyterian Hunger Program.
Intergenerational Mission Trip
Have you heard of our church’s mission trips to Mars Hill and West Virginia and thought, “Maybe next year”? Well this could be the perfect year to see what it is like. Come and work with members of Highland to help people in need stay warmer, dryer, and safer. Due to Covid 19 we are staying local and partnering with Habitat for Humanity July 20-24. There will be work for all ages. Habitat for Humanity has secured a total of 5 sites (2 houses in Lancaster City and 3 in Lebanon) for Highland. In addition to the work with Habit for Humanity we are also planning on helping other members of the church with home repairs. Habitat for Humanity is following CDC guidelines and limiting the number of people at each house. There are also outdoor projects that need to be completed. In order for our committee to plan properly please fill out this survey by June 28. Thank you and we hope this is the year for you and your family to join us in helping others in this special way. Please contact Jim Eberle or Noe Juarez with any questions about the trip.
