Community Presbyterian Church in Pinetop-Lakeside will be celebrating 65 years of faith-based services in the White Mountains Friday.

CPC’s first service was recorded on March 27, 1957, at the Pinetop Elementary School gymnasium. Six months later, the church secured its first full-time minister and held its first full service on Nov. 18, 1957, the same day CPC became an organized church through the Presbytery of Northern Arizona.
