LHPC was born in 1999 when three East Dallas churches shared a vision to join together and form one community.  We hold membership in two Presbyterian denominations:  The Presbyterian Church U.S.A. (PC-USA) and the Cumberland Presbyterian Church (CPC).

History of Lake Highlands Presbyterian

In 1997, three Presbyterian congregations located in the Lake Highlands/Casa Linda areas of Dallas (Colonial Presbyterian Church; Northminster Presbyterian Church, and Lake Park Presbyterian Church) began to explore the concept of becoming one church. These three congregations had a cumulative history of over 200 years of ministry in the city.

The Vision: The vision was that the three congregations could unite as a single Presbyterian presence in Lake Highlands.  The associated LHPC ministries would be greater than any of the three could do alone. After almost three years of exploration, study, and prayer the three congregations merged.   

The Vision Becomes Reality: On January 17, 1999, as the result of a merger Lake Highlands Presbyterian Church (CPC/PCUSA) was formed. Each of the three former congregations brought their special programs to Lake Highlands Presbyterian Church, and we began the process of evolving into the single, stronger Presbyterian community, with the vision of providing a strong witness of God's grace to the Lake Highlands community and beyond.
