The fallout from the decision of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) to allow noncelibate homosexuals to become clergy and lay leaders continues as more churches vote to break away.
Sumner Presbyterian Church of Sumner, Wash., voted on Sunday to leave the PC (USA) due to the change in the denomination's constitution.
Around 90 percent of the congregation supported the move to break away, with the church planning to become part of the Evangelical Covenant Church.
According to its website, the ECC was founded in 1885 and identifies itself as multiethnic, "Evangelical, but not exclusive," and "Traditional, but not rigid."
This news comes as the Fellowship of Presbyterians, a conservative movement comprised of former PC(USA) congregations, readies for its "National Covenanting Conference" next year in Orlando.
Until then, the fellowship will be holding regional conferences in late November in Peoria, Ill., and Plymouth Meeting, Pa.
