This afternoon our congregation met to vote on the session’s recommendation that we request dismissal with property from the Presbyterian Church (USA) to the Evangelical Covenant Order of Presbyterians. With 204 voting members present we far exceeded the required quorum of 143. The final vote was:
196 Yes, 8 No, which represents 96% of the members present voting yes to request dismissal.
The Presbytery of Elizabeth will vote on our request on the evening of Tuesday, June 26. Please pray that the same spirit of graciousness will prevail at the presbytery that has characterized the process with the Presbytery Resolution Team.
Thank you, God!
