Re: Requests to Become Members of Heights Presbyterian Church
Attached is mine and my wifeís formal requests to become members of Heights Presbyterian Church.
I have made this request to Joe Delgatto at a session meeting at Heights Presbyterian Church in October 2002. My wife and I also made this request to Delgatto and Roy Keezel in church on a Sunday morning in March 2003, of which I have a video tape. Also, I requested the same of Lynn Johnson and Mike Cole of which I also have a recording from the day of the congregational meeting.
Attached are the relevant documents.
Per the Book of Order G.5.0103 it states to wit:
The congregation shall welcome all persons who respond in trust and obedience to Godís grace in Jesus Christ and desire to become part of the membership and ministry of his Church. No persons shall be denied membership because of race, ethnic origin, worldly condition, or any other reason not related to profession of faith. Each member must seek the grace of openness in extending the fellowship of Christ to all persons. (G-9.0104) Failure to do so constitutes a rejection of Christ himself and causes a scandal to the gospel.
How can we manifest peace on earth if we do not include everyone (all races, all nations, all religions, both sexes) in our vision of Peace?
