Formed from Greer Presbytery by Indianola Synod.
United with Greer Presbytery.
The following was adopted:
Your Committee on Overtures and Judiciary have considered the overture from the Greer Presbytery, and would recommend that said Presbytery be divided according to the following lines:
Commencing on the west line where the north fork of Red river leaves the Texas state line, thence down the north fork of Red river to the township line between townships seven and eight (it being the south line of Washita county, Oklahoma), thence east on said line to the Washita river, thence down the Washita river to the west line of the Chickasaw nation; all be known as Greer Presbytery, and all that part lying north of said line to be known as Washita Presbytery.
We recommend that the new Greer Presbytery meet according to the time and place of the last adjournment of Greer Presbytery, and that Rev. J. A. Zinn be appointed to convene the new Greer Presbytery and preside until a Moderator is elected.
That the Washita Presbytery be directed to meet with the Mt. Lebanon Church at 7:30 p.m. on Friday before the third Sabbath in March, 1903, and that Rev. J. J. Donnehoo be appointed to convene the Presbytery and preside until a Moderator is elected.
That the churches within the bounds of the Washita Presbytery be directed to pay into the treasury of the Greer Presbytery whatever dues are behind for the year 1902.
