Re: Member of Record Baptism - Post birthdate

As long as the child has not turned 9, it's the ward clerk. At the age of 9, they become a convert and are handled by the mission. Makes sense, maybe I might have been confused if it was 8 or 9 when they become a convert. I remember it was only a week after their birthdate that I was no longer able...

Re: Keys to the Ward Clerk’s office

At one time, the priesthood quorum and relief society presidents needed access to the ward computer running MLS to do their work. With much of that having been moved on-line, I'm not sure as that's still true. I know of no reason why any auxiliary president would need keys to clerks office unless m...

Keys to the Ward Clerk’s office

Who do you all allow access to the Ward clerk’s office with keys? Apparently we allow all our Branch Council members with key but hesitant since there are sensitive documents and paper work in the office. Do you lock up your file cabinets with tithing paperwork’s?

Fast Offering - Housing direct withdrawals

What type of proof of receipt would be required if the payer and the recipient are the same because the rent payment is through direct withdrawal from their checking acccount? Is a bank statement sufficient evidence of receipt of payment?

Member of Record Baptism - Post birthdate

We have a member of record baptism that is happening after their 8th birthdate. If it is after their birthdate, does the Ward clerk enter the baptism information or the Stake Mission?

Fast Offering - Housing documents

When gathering documents during an audit, what is the minimum requirement for Fast Offering housing expenses? Do we just need a copy of the lease or rental agreement to be in compliance during the audit?

Reimbursement Form - Bishop's Signature

Before we can write out a check for reimbursement expenses, we usually have to wait until the Bishop signs off on the reimbursement form. It can be difficult at times if the Bishop is in meetings and difficult to track down. How have you been able to get their signature that has worked out the best....

Budget - Percent allocation by units

Could someone give a rough estimate of the percentage that they allocate to the auxiliary units in your Ward? Do you tend to allocate a higher percentage towards the Youths and Primary or do you simply make it a fair equal percentage to all the auxiliary units?

Fast Offering - Budget Limits

I know we don't have access to know the budget limits to Fast Offerings but is there some way to know if we are getting close to the budget limit for Fast Offerings? The needs of the Ward has increased while Tithing payments have remained the same so I wasn't sure if we reach the limit of Tithing pa...

Re: Record Paper Rentention

The answer depends on the country. In the US, it's "3 years plus current". So, as of this post, you can shred anything dated 2014 or before. (2015, 2016, 2017 being the "three year" and 2018 being "the plus current".) But other countries can have longer retention perio...
