Saturday's Presbyterian vote may pave path for two churches' exit

From Houston-

No one in Houston Presbyterian circles is calling it a "divorce."

But when regional denomination leaders meet Saturday, they will face the next worst thing: the demands of two dissident congregations to split from the Presbyterian Church‑USA to join the newer, more conservative ECO: A Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians.

If the Presbytery of New Covenant, governing body for 95 Southeast Texas congregations, votes to "dismiss," Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church and Missouri City's Southminster Presbyterian Church will become the 11th and 12th area churches to leave the denomination in recent years.
