Proper Wording for PH Ordination/Conferral

Expense Report Passé?

So. . .we still (usually) use MLS for entering expenses and printing checks. The exception would be when we need to split one expense across different budget categories--LCR allows that, MLS from what I can tell does not. Anyway. . .after printing a single or batch of checks in MLS, MLS spits out an...

We have a Xerox Phaser 3250 that is depositing horizontal lines of toner throughout the page when we print. We contacted the stake clerk who contact FM who replied: "The Building Rep is in charge of this printer. He will need to call the phone number on the side of the printer to trouble shoot ...

Tithing Settlement and Boundary Changes

Hello, I'm wondering if the information found here: https://www.lds.org/help/support/finances-during-changes?lang=eng is still relevant. The pages says it was last updated in March 2014. I have been told that now donation records will follow members when they move to another ward, which should remov...

Frustrations with store.lds.org

I don't have a specific question that I think can get answered here, just looking for a collective shoulder to cry on a little. . .our bishopric was recently reorganized and I ended up with my second favorite calling: assistant ward clerk. My first task was to print out labels for the new bishop to ...

Christmas on Sunday

Our ward leadership is getting ready to high-level calendar 2016 and I noticed that Christmas falls on a Sunday in 2016. I vaguely remember authorization for a shortened block the last time that happened, am I remembering correctly?

Stillborn Child

Way off topic, for you seasoned clerks. . .we have a family in the ward that lost a child several weeks into the pregnancy. They're planning a simple, family-only graveside at which the father plans to dedicate the grave. I assume this is appropriate. The handbook doesn't say one way or the other. A...

Melchizedek Priesthood Ordination Record

We got into an animated discussion about this form the other day, specifically about who interviews the candidate. By my reading of it, in the instructions at the top it references "interviewing priesthood leaders" (plural), and there are signature lines for both the bishop and the stake (...
