Season of Decision
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
We are grateful for your participation in this season of discernment at First Presbyterian Church Houston. The motion seeking dismissal to ECO did not pass with the required super majority. Total ballots counted were 1681. There were 1085 FOR the motion and 596 AGAINST; to satisfy the super majority requirement 1121 votes were needed to carry the motion.
We labored for a year in love and grace seeking a decision regarding our church’s denominational affiliation. It was inspiring and nothing short of a miracle to witness brothers and sisters in Christ “bearing with one another” as God’s holy and beloved children. Thank you for your Christ-like behavior.
Please join your pastors, elders, and staff for a prayer service in the sanctuary tomorrow, Monday, at noon. We serve a God that is able to do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine. To Him be the glory.
Your servants in Christ,
