the first commenter's question about who owns the church bldg and real estate does make you wonder---do you know who owns the church bldg where you spend sunday mornings?
how often do we 'open the hood' and look at the actual working parts of what we call 'our church'? do we even know the budget details?
i think many mainline denominations work on this same model--the national denomination own all the properties, so you could say they are like a national store like T-get or H-Depot.

kjg, I have to stop being such a positive guy! and others well, The UMC and the Episcopal both have the church properties in the dominion's name! I remember a large Methodist went "rogue" on the East Coast and "absconded" with the church building, This doesn't help the pension fund, so the UMC put an end to that decades ago. A link to a PDF file, which points out some of the differences of the major Presbyterian dominations, http://www.firstpresb.org/Dismissal%26ECO%20Files/EPC%20ECO%20PCUSA%20comparison%20chart.pdf (Comparison of basic beliefs and viewpoints of three Presbyterian denominations:...). One thing they don't have a difference on is allowing women preachers!

Probably not, they don't in the United Methodist Church nor I think in the Episcopal church either.

For this church, like others, it's out of the fire into the frying pan, since they allow the ordination of women This of course completely wrong, as one Presbyterian pastor put it, http://www.biblebb.com/files/RD-001WP.htm (Women Preachers)

FPC is one of a large number of PC (USA) congregations that in recent years have decided to leave the Mainline Protestant denomination over its theological direction, which includes its growing acceptance of homosexuality.

In a letter sent out last month to the congregation, FPC Clerk of Session N. A. Stuart, III, MD argued that "our denomination is not what it once was, and it has wandered from its biblical and confessional moorings."

"Ultimately, after years of prayer, discussion, and input from our members, on Oct. 12 the Session of FPC voted to recommend to the congregation that we leave the PC(USA) and join the ECO: A Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians — a rapidly growing Reformed Presbyterian denomination," wrote Stuart.

"In contrast to the theological concerns and membership declines within the PC(USA), we find ECO to be a vibrant, growing Presbyterian denomination which shares this church's historical vision for teaching, evangelism and mission."

Trump's 'church' is a PCUSA evil cult.
Trump needs to be comfronted with real Presbyterians breaking off from the current cult of Sodomite, Baby killing, anti-Bible apostates.
No one has asked him that I can find.
It is current news so he should be asked.
