Fort Square Presbyterian Church Dismissed

From PC(USA) to Join ECO

 

Quincy, Massachusetts, February 23, 2016 – Fort Square Presbyterian Church announces that, after a long, prayerful process of discernment, congregational meetings, and respectful dialogue with the Presbytery of Boston, it has sought and received gracious dismissal from the Presbyterian Church (USA) to become a congregation of the Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians (ECO). ECO was founded in 2012 by a group of PC(USA) pastors who perceived that growing denominational disputes over theology and bureaucracy stole focus from their calling of sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ and equipping a new generation for leadership.
 
Founded in 1896, Fort Square Presbyterian Church is one of the most historic churches in the Boston area. Descendants of the original church founders alongside new congregants from around the world work together to make Fort Square a welcoming and affirming place to come into relationship with God and with each other. The request for dismissal from the PC(USA) was formulated with the unanimous consent of the Fort Square congregation.

Fort Square thanks the Presbytery of Boston for its care, respect, and prayers during this discernment and dismissal process.
