Highland’s Service & Witness Committee (SaWC) facilitates our church’s vision to cooperate with God’s work in the world. Micro Initiative Funds are small grants award to Highlanders who wish to love their neighbours in simple or creative ways, such as organizing a fundraising concert for a local women’s shelter, or hosting a block party.
The SaWC organizes three annual intergenerational service experiences.
During Advent and Christmas, the SaWC hosts a coin drive on behalf of the Abbotsford Food Bank. In January, 40+ Highlanders of all ages work together to sort food donations at the Food Bank warehouse.
In the Easter season, the SaWC coordinates 20+ Highlanders who volunteer at the Run for Water race, which raises money to enable Ethiopian communities to get access to clean water.
3. In September, Highlanders partner with Mennonite Central Committee. In addition to a team of Highland women who sew quilts that are donated to MCC, Highlanders young and old bake and sell up to 50 pies at the MCC Festival to raise funds for overseas relief and development. The SaWC also hosts a Sunday morning work bee in which Highlanders of all ages pack school kit supplies for refugee students around the world.
We gather Sundays at 10:00 am:
