Q&A: What should I do when someone in sin wants to go to church

Have you ever known someone who is flagrant sin and who continues to go to church? In the case of someone who is an unbeliever, this is easy. We want them to come and hear the gospel. But what about when that person professes to be a believer? If a professing believer is in sin and wants to go to church, what can I do? Should they be allowed to go to church? How should we deal with this?
