Likewise, young women progress between Young Women classes as age-groups at the beg...

Re: Is it appropriate to encourage online payment of fast offerings and tithing if possible?

Based on GHB 34.4.2, your Bishop has full discretion as to how to proceed regarding whether or not to collect fast offerings. Is the issue that the Deacons are visiting members who are unable to come to church regularly and collecting fast offerings from them, and if these home-bound members started...

Re: Refundable Deposit for Youth Activity

If the cost is the concern, then perhaps the entire activity should be re-evaluated given the instructions in the handbook on activities and costs. Agreed, GHB 20.2.8 outlines this well. Reading that, my impressions are that the Church discourages activities that incur large costs, except for pre-d...

Re: Payment Request menu in LCR Finance

Although counselors may be authorized to sign checks, they should not do so unless the stake president or bishop has approved the expenditure Understood. I believe my and others' interpretation is that "approving the expenditure" is not specifically approving beforehand that the RS will b...

Re: Sacred Funds, Sacred Responsibilities video

Does anyone know if this video is available to watch in Spanish? I'm a clerk in a Spanish-speaking branch. The video is not available from the Finance, Help, Financial Training Videos as it it on the English site. I also searched the name of the video in Spanish but didn't find anything. Thank you....

Re: Payment Request menu in LCR Finance

If I'm following this thread correctly, there's still some muddied waters regarding what exactly this "Prior Approval" of the Bishop actually entails ("Expenses must be approved by the stake president or bishop before they are incurred"). My understanding is that a Bishop approve...

Re: Conference talk search results newest to oldest?

Thanks! I was hoping for something like that which I wasn't aware of. I'm glad I can at least use this approach via my phone, not only for personal study, but also for my calling (I am looking for a Conference talk to share as a reference for a sacrament meeting talk that I need to assign, and havin...

Conference talk search results newest to oldest?

I didn't see this answered elsewhere but I realize it may have been. From what I can tell, the search tool used on the main website does not support any type of query ordering. I often find that I want to search for the newest Conference talks on a topic, and generally the results come up with some ...

Re: Can I make a report of people who have paid tithing and fast offerings?

I'm a bit interested in your Bishop's reasoning for this info. I don't discount it might be helpful, but to me it seems regarding tithes and offerings, the Church focuses more on teaching the correct principles and letting members govern themselves. Granted a Bishop can use discretion in a temple re...

Re: Taking Photos in Chapel after Meeting

Hmmm. I know I've taken pics in the chapel and uploaded them into FIR to show which light was burned out, or the exact location of a scratch on a pew. And never gotten any pushback about that. But I would be interested in seeing if you get any more info from your leader(s), if they know anything mor...
