  • Denomination Renewal

    The Denomination Renewal Team has been meeting to determine the choices our congregation has as a result of the changes PCUSA has taken regarding church policy. We have several options to consider if the congregation chooses to leave PCUSA. Two of the denominations being studied at thia time are ECO (Evangelical Covent Order of Presbyterians) and EPC (Evangelical Presbyterian Church). For more information on these denominations click on the "Renewal" tab on the home page.
