DALLAS – A Dallas-area school district has decided to stop renting a nondenominational megachurch for high school graduation amid concerns about separation of church and state.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Texas raised questions about use of The Potter’s House.

The Dallas Morning News reported this week that the Irving school district in 2012 will no longer use the church led by Bishop T.D. Jakes.

Since 2004, the district has held its graduation ceremony at the worship facility and event center, which seats several thousand people.

Next month’s graduation ceremony will go on as planned at The Potter’s House. Leasing the complex will cost the district nearly $65,000.
