Requesting a letter of transfer
I'm getting ready to leave one congregation/denomination (RPC, Hanover) and join another of like faith and practice (OPC).
This will be the first time in my life I've changed my Church membership (well, since leaving the Roman Catholics many years ago as a youth), and I'm told that it's customary to request a letter of transfer.
Can anyone point me to sample verbiage for a letter one would submit to one's session requesting a transfer of membership? We've discussed it, and I expect they'll accept anything I send, but I'd like to send something that would be ... well ... proper.
