Aaronic Priesthood - Quorum Presidencies

About a year ago, we called the Deacon's Quorum Presidency and now a year later, they all have turned 14. Does the Deacon's Quorum Presidency automatically should be transferred and called to the Teacher's Quorum Presidency once they all turn 14? My guess the answer is, no, we would have to release ...

Re: Marriage - Not legally married

Can we add a spouse who is a member to another member in their records as married even though they are not legally but only culturally married? If the bishop is unclear on what to do in this circumstance, he should consult with his stake president. What is the proper protocol if we can add married ...

Re: Building Keys

I always ask the FM's office assistant to send me the key assignment list for my meetinghouse. She is always happy to send a PDF to me. We have two wards and a branch that meet in the same building. I’m also curious as to how other clerks are keeping track of keys to their Ward members. The difficu...

Re: Food - Fast Offering reimbursement

If a member takes another member or investigator out for dinner, can that member be reimbursed from the Food - Fast Offering category? Or lets say a member has been very diligent in picking up members to church and we would like to reimburse them for gas, should this come from Fast Offering or the ...

Re: Food - Fast Offering reimbursement

I don't believe anyone in the forum can give this counsel. We all have different experiences and some may have seen this before, but your branch president or bishop are the ones authorized to determine appropriate use of the Lord's funds. No one here has that stewardship for your unit. Its understa...

Re: Budget - Auxiliary Units over budget

At some point there needs to be consequences for the overage. Have you ever had to deny anyone reimbursement yourself or did you leave that up to the Bishop? Or were there some questionable expense that they should have looked at to mitigate going over. For example, one of the auxiliary units decid...

Re: Keys to the Ward Clerk’s office

I guess I'm old school. If someone doesn't want the expense/hassle of printing classroom materials at home, then have them print ONE and take it to the copier on Sunday. I think that's the problem, even printing just "ONE" at home is too much for some people that they end up just printing...

Re: Reimbursement Form - Bishop's Signature

You do not have to have the bishop's written signature before you cut the check or even before you distribute the check. You need need his approval before hand but it can be verbal, via text, etc. Just make sure that he does sign the reimbursement request or the transaction report soon after to avo...
