I agree that non-believers should be welcome in church but, for the most part, it should be a place where Christians can lift each other up and encourage each other in their walk with Christ.

Que, to answer your questions, I think if someone professes to follow Christ and refuses to repent, then we should follow the example Jesus set in Matthew 18:15-17.
I actually witnessed this in a home church once. A brother in Christ admitted that he had been having an affair. The men in the church went right through the steps listed in the above verse. Last I knew, he was at his "last chance" of repenting before being sent away from the fellowship.
