Re: Wife is "Other" in MLS Household

It could also be that the marriage was never recorded. I have a couple where the spouse is listed as 'Other' and that's because I simply added her to the household with out recording a marriage event. So, in order to fix this I'm assuming that when I process the marriage event (under Membership in M...

Re: Ordering Deposit Tickets

You can also order them from the distribution website at store.lds.org.... Then click on 'Donation Envelopes and Stationary', then 'Donation Envelope, Personalized'. Thanks for the suggestion, but this topic deals with bank deposit slips, not donation envelopes and the associated donation slips. Th...

Re: App for sacrament meeting program.

Just a different perspective... I think all members should have the WiFi password. If they are going to make the decision to come to church, they should be able to make the decision to use the network judiciously. Pulling up a 250k pdf of the ward bulletin isn't going to impact the network much at ...

Re: Auxiliary budgets

I assumed all wards did it this way, but first we estimate the quarterly allowance we'll get for that year to figure the total annual budget. Our bishop then has a budget meeting with the auxiliary presidents to determine how much each will need. Then I enter those amounts in the various budget cate...

Re: App for sacrament meeting program.

Honestly, not many would look at it if it was available online, an app, or hosted on a local computer...at least not in our ward. Many don't have smart phones, or aren't as technically savvy as others. For tablet users, we also don't give out our password for our Wi-Fi network because it would slow ...

Re: When and How do you count attendance in sacrament?

I get up and count right after the sacrament is passed. Several people usually get up and walk out (either to go to the bathroom, or to leave) and I count them. Then I walk up and down the aisles because it's easy to miss children who might be laying down, or kneeling on the floor coloring or someth...

Re: Paperless Membership Records

We just had a new bishop called. The previous bishop liked to have all the membership records printed out and kept in a binder. Our new bishop is a little more internet savvy, and prefers to just view the records on LDS.org. So he told me to just shred all the hard copies. I'm so glad too, because i...

Re: Quarterly Report - Sacrament Meeting Attendance

Doesn't the Stake President have the authority to make this call? He is the person with the keys to interpret the language of the Handbook, and thus, should be given the latitude? I don't believe the Stake President does have the authority to go against written church policy. This sort of thing rea...
