Denominational Affairs ECO Recommendation to the Session

At the regular stated meeting of the Session of Grace Presbyterian Church the Denominational Affairs Committee introduced for discussion and action the following motion:

If the Session of Grace votes after discernment to call a congregational meeting seeking dismissal in accordance with the Presbytery of the New Covenant’s Gracious Reconciliation and Dismissal Procedure, then ECO: A Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians (ECO) shall be the particular Reformed body to which the congregation would request to be dismissed.

After conversation and dialogue it was recommended that action be delayed by at least a week, as has become our practice with more difficult decisions, for continued prayer and discernment on the part of the Elders. On February 27th at a special meeting of the Session the motion was passed unanimously.
