Connecting with Our Community
We are a church committed to our surrounding Lake Highlands Community. We want to be a church that is accessible, welcoming, and working towards building a better community. One way in which we do this is by making our building usable for the many varied groups and organizations in our community. We highlight three of them below, but we have several others! Call the Church Office to inquire further information.
BlackLand Prairie Conservatory & Atelier
BPCA is a school that is housed in the education wing of the Church. It is not owned or operated by the church, but is a school that we are proud to have on campus. They have the sweetest children, they play outside, they have updated classroom spaces, and have turned our backyard into the natural Blackland Prairie that it is-- and it is beautiful!
Their "primary initiative is to establish, operate, and maintain a day school dedicated to the education and enrichment of children. The mission is to encourage these children to live and learn (play)fully, (mind)fully, and (art)fully. By specializing in Waldorf-inspired learning and other emergent curriculum theories, Blackland Prairie will create an atmosphere that cultivates global citizens, earth stewards, and builds community friendships" .
This group gathers at HCC, currently, once a week on Wednesday evenings. This is a time for young children to learn and engage with mom, dad, grandma or grandpa using the many varied skills of music.
"For over 30 years, Kindermusik has been the world’s most trusted name in music and movement classes for children newborn to seven. Kindermusik curricula are based upon the principles of early development applied to developmentally appropriate practice as defined by the NAEYC."
Ikebana International Dallas Chapter #13
"Ikebana is the Japanese art of flower arrangement. It is more than simply putting flowers in a container. It is a disciplined art form in which the arrangement is a living thing where nature and humanity are brought together. It is steeped in the philosophy of developing a closeness with nature."
