This is a spinoff from the Church Discipline thread. Let's say a member resigns in the middle of a disciplinary process. The church acknowledges the resignation and separation, and removes the name from the roll. At the next Lord's Supper observance, the former member shows up. Will you serve this ex-member? Why or why not? Let's say you would not. How you handle this potentially awkward situation? What needs to happen before you would allow participation? Let's add further details. This ex-member goes to the pastor upon arrival and tells him that even though he/she is no longer a member, she is a Christian and feels the need to take the Lord's Supper. You're the pastor. What now?
