Reclaiming

It’s a great moment when a member who has been “removed” due to their request or church discipline decides to rejoin the church. This is “reclaiming”.

How does a church clerk record this in eAdventist? The clerk who has the “removed” record can click the “Change Status/Rebaptize” button and select “Reclaim” (added Oct 18, 2011). This will change the person’s status to “nonmember”. If they are being baptized in a different church, you can click “Change church” to move them to the appropriate church. Now the “baptism” can be recorded the usual way.

“Undo removed” should only be used to fix incorrect “removed” entries.
