Missions & Local Outreach
At Highlands, we are privileged to have various opportunities to serve our God by spreading His word and His love in practical ways, locally and around the world.
"For I was hungry and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you took care of Me; I was in prison and you visited Me...I assure you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of Mine, you did for Me." Matthew 25:35-36 & 40
To get to know our neighbors and the local community, we offer special events and activities on our campus such as concerts, BBQs, our annual Fun in the Sun Car Show, Harvest Bowl, seminars and many more.
Seniors in local convalescent homes are visited for fellowship and a message from God's Word- 1st Sunday in Pacifica and 3rd Sunday in San Bruno. Other visits are made upon request for our visitation team.
As Christians, we have great news to share with the world. We offer classes to help you learn to share your faith and we offer opportunities to do so. Don't keep the good news to yourself! Through personal evangelism, church events, concerts, community events and more, we hope to win our families and our community for Jesus Christ.
Our outreach is to the San Francisco County Jail. The Jail Ministry team conducts 5 services a week (3 in English, 2 in Spanish, and 1 for women). Individual counseling is also provided. In addition, we minister to the children of inmates through our "Gifts for Kids at the Gate" outreach.
POMEROY CENTER OUTREACH
During Thanksgiving, we send a team to minister to the Pomeroy Recreation & Rehabilitation Center. Our team ministers through music and by serving meals to disabled adults and children as well as their families.
GIFTS FOR KIDS AT THE GATE
You can bring joy to a child at Christmas! We collect gifts for the children who visit their parents at the local jail. On a Saturday in December, our Jail Ministry team provides Christian literature for the adults, gifts for the kids, and hot chocolate for all. Call the Church Office for more details.

If you are interested in participating in a missions trips to Borneo, call Pastor Tony Lolong at 650.266.4317.
Our current focus in Borneo is on the "Living Waters Village". This village is a missionary outreach to orphans and other children from jungle villages; providing the gospel, safety, medical attention, and a Christian education are the priorities. As these children grow up, they are able to share the gospel in their own villages. Pastor Tony Lolong & Pastor Donald Sheley led a mission’s team to Borneo in October 2010, and they had a wonderful experience. Since then, teams have been going about every 6 months. "Living Waters" welcomes individuals and teams for short-term trips to help in many ways (cooking, music, teaching, building, all skills are welcome). Financial gifts are also welcome.
YEARLY HOLIDAY OUTREACH
We participate in Samaritan's Purse, Operation Christmas Child. Shoeboxes are filled with goodies and sent to needy children across the globe.
