Re: Gospel library requires internet access

I've noticed an annoyance with the Gospel Library app on my Android tablet. Our building has terrible internet, so we have been turning off the wireless network each Sunday so that the clerks can perform their financial processes. Today I noticed that as I clicked around in the Gospel Library, a bo...

Re: No Unit Budget Allowance for summer camps

Note that all funds given by the church goes to the stake, where the SP decides how much to keep for stake activities and how much goes to the wards. But, I wouldn't be so quick to give the ward a free pass. The activities don't have to be at all extravagant to be more then what can be afforded. Ty...

Re: No Unit Budget Allowance for summer camps

I need better understanding about this stuff, so I sincerely appreciate your posts. This year, we have to come up with $275 per YM for our (multi-stake LDS) Scout Camp. (Note: If our ward arranged the camp, the amount per YM would be similar and we'd still be fundraising the full amount.) Now - I ha...

Re: No Unit Budget Allowance for summer camps

Might I ask what your current calling is? My last Bishop released me 3 years ago from my YM callings and wouldn't extend another. My new Bishop extended a calling as Sunday School Counselor to me a few months ago. After 15 years, I believe I have gained an understanding of how the Church expects YM...

Re: No Unit Budget Allowance for summer camps

Maybe everyone should go back and read for understanding. If funds from participants are not sufficient, the bishop may authorize one group fund-raising activity annually that complies with the guidelines in 13.6.8 13.6.8 Fund-Raising Activities Fund-raising activities are not usually approved beca...

Re: No Unit Budget Allowance for summer camps

Trying again - Some background first (unsure what's relevant): Our stake has 4 wards, ours is in a neighboring county. I'd guess our ward comprises ~5% total stake member income. Our sacrament meetings avg 150-200 members. I've never been Financial Clerk. I've 5 sons and have spent 15 years in BSA l...

Re: No Unit Budget Allowance for summer camps

I spent quite a while composing a reply only to discover that the forum software logged me out and gave me no way to recover what I wrote.

How pointlessly frustrating.

No Unit Budget Allowance for summer camps

My ward has zero funds for any kind of extended youth activity (ie: scout or YW camp); maybe we never have. It's not like other activities are using up the funds. The activities we have are cost-free or near to it. Here's my challenge. When I read funding guidelines, I find segments like this: "...

Any hope of getting the map pins to show correct location after an in-boundry move?

This issue has been around for a while. After a member moves within their ward boundary, the map pins don't update. We're given directions to update the maps... Household locations are wrong on the map Church members who sign in to LDS Maps and find that their household on the map is in the wrong lo...

It appears then, that you have done all you can do, because you have already been to the stake presidency. And now, you have the challenge of supporting your priesthood leaders as best you can. It will not be easy. You will be blessed for doing it. I have been there. Stay in tune with the Spirit an...
