 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.
