Re: Is there a way to get the app if you don't have a phone?

I don't find this much different from other tech-enhanced communication methods implemented by local Youth leaders, albeit this is an official Church app. I've often found that whether it's group texting, WhatsApp, FB pages, or any other way leaders engage with youth using the Tech they identify wit...

Re: Fundraiser income

That's interesting, I've always assumed that the YW or YM Presidents in the past have been the ones collecting fundraiser donations, but perhaps I've just not noticed that it's always a Bishopric member (assuming fundraising donations are included in this category of tithes and other offerings). Of ...

Re: Reporting sacrament mtg. attendance during a natural disaster

I would personally think that even in locations where a decision had been made to do something like only hold sacrament meeting but not the second hour class, your local Priesthood leaders may give you discretion to enter a zero for sacrament meeting attendance. It would be unfortunate to be negativ...

Re: Ministering Tool

I am the elders quorum secretary and someone was previously able to create companionship with married couples (my wife and I are companions), but I am not able to create additional husband/wife companions.

Re: Do Not Contact List/Visibility

If she doesn't want to remove any communication through email then you could suggest that she removes her email address. Many members making this request, likely won't welcome a leader telling them to do this, as they may not even want to access anything related to the church, even a direct link to...

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....
