Presbyterian - Colorado

    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - The First Presbyterian Church in
downtown Colorado Springs has voted to split from its denomination
and align with a new, more conservative organization.
     The vote ratifies a decision made by church leaders in January
to leave the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), after the church voted
in 2011 to allow openly gay ministers to be ordained.
     Pastor Jim Singleton told members they should contact a pastor
if they are disappointed or angered by the decision.
     Of the nearly 1,800 church members, about 1,700 voted to leave
the PCUSA and join the more conservative Evangelical Covenant Order
Of Presbyterians.
