Article 60 — Attestations for non-communicant members
An attestation for a non-communicant member shall be sent directly to the consistory of the church concerned with the request to take the member under its supervision and discipline.
Attestations regarding non-communicant members are not handed over to them, but sent to the consistory concerned. The reason for this is that these members have not taken full responsibility for their membership by making public profession of faith. The ‘new’ consistory is requested to take these members under its supervision and discipline, whereas communicant-members make this request themselves, as explained under the previous article.
