Several months ago we first reported that one of the nation's largest churches in the Presbyterian USA denomination is considering breaking away from that affiliation. The discernment process at First Presbyterian Church Houston is underway and is already stirring up debate.
First Presbyterian Houston church members voted over the weekend to enter into a discussion about what the church's affiliation will be with its denomination. The church is one of the largest—if not largest—Presbyterian congregations in the country to enter into this process.
One of the largest Presbyterian churches in the country, located here in Houston, is voting this Sunday on whether or not to enter into a discussion of what its ultimate affiliation should be with its denomination — the Presbyterian Church USA. KUHF's Shomial Ahmad looked into why the church is considering such a move.
