PORTERSVILLE, Pa. (AP) — A western Pennsylvania presbytery has dismissed a church from the Presbyterian Church (USA) so it can join a more conservative coalition known as the Evangelical Presbyterian Church.

The Beaver-Butler Presbytery includes 87 churches in two counties north and northwest of Pittsburgh. The Portersville Presbyterian Church voted 115-3 to leave the national mainline Protestant denomination.
