     The Mission Committee usually meets on the first Tuesday of the month at 5:30pm.

The next meeting is Tuesday, March 13 at 5:30.

We hope you are cleaning closets and sorting your treasures! Our annual sale is Friday and Saturday April 20 & 21, with Thursday the19th the special North Highlander’s shopping evening. All of the proceeds go to our varied mission projects.
You may bring your items to the church after worship on Sunday April 15th. We do not have extra storage space and cannot fill the fellowship hall before that time. Also, please note that we do not accept entertainment centers or bulky television sets, because they don’t sell and we then need to haul and pay disposal fees. If you are unable to bring your items, we may be able to pick them up so call the church and we will get back to you. We will need lots of help sorting and pricing before the sale, so watch for sign up opportunities, or plan to stay and help when you drop off your items for the sale.
Thank you!
 Spotlight on . . . The Missions Committee
 The purpose of the Missions Committee is to serve others and to provide opportunities for people at North Highland to contribute to the service of others in our area, across the country, and throughout the world.
 Projects of the Missions Committee include, but are not limited to, the following:
1)       Kit Collection for the Annual In-Gathering held each September at Dakota Wesleyan University. These include sewing kits, layette kits, school kits, health kits, and flood buckets (or the money to purchase supplies for flood buckets).
2)       Annual NHUMC Rummage Sale which is held on a week-end in March or April. Money from this sale goes towards the Mission Committee’s projects. 
3)       Coats for Kids Give-Away. People who have gently used coats are encouraged to deposit them in the box in the entry of K-Mart, Kens, and the Aberdeen Credit Unions. The coats are then displayed at North Highland and people who need coats are welcomed to come and select one. The rest of the coats are taken to the Tree of Life Ministries.
4)       Shoebox Christmas Project. People are encouraged to bring items for preschool to teen-age years that would fit in a shoebox. The shoeboxes are then given to students at Enemy Swim Day School (K-8). Also receiving shoeboxes are the  Enemy Swim Pre-School, and Enemy Swim Head Start. Also contributing to this effort are many churches in the Dakotas Conference including Bath, Milbank, Howard, Eureka, Clark, Bowdle, Hitchcock, and Gayville-Volin. The shoeboxes are delivered to Enemy Swim by members of the Missions Committee and anyone else who would like to go.
