Please note that when a contribution is made, a Tithing and Other Offerings slip must be filled out. Also note the categories on that slip for which donations can be made (I know, those listed are not all inclusive.). ... There is no provision for a budget account deposit. I would take slight excep...

I do not think this issue should be closed. Allowing what ponders posted in the open to this thread to be dismissed as acceptable in any form can have serious consequences for the Church. I would like to take another tack in addressing the issue. Please note that when a contribution is made, a Tithi...

I can find nothing in any official documentation to justify the claim, "To keep 'personal' funds separate from Church funds is one of the purposes of the Other account." I will agree there is nothing documented to verify the statement. When I recieved financial auditor training from an area authori...

But in no way do I see that this scenario involves personal funds. Once a payment is made, whether it is for a fund-raiser, or where a youth pays earned funds for an annual camp, those funds are no longer "personal" -- they then are Church funds. I respectfully disagree. Funds provided by a young m...

When dealing with an issue such as this the first place to find guidance is in the Church Handbook of Instructions. A quick scan of Chapter 16, Finances, says that both the stake president and the bishop "...ensures that Church funds are never mixed with personal funds." To keep "personal" funds sep...

I have a church building that is on restricted access and we can not access familysearch.org. Can that website be "opened up" on the restricted firewall to allow familysearch.org? If not, we'll need to use the less restricted firewall. According to the Church's definition of LDS Restricted Access t...

Any other ideas as to how to make the other stake's building schedule availble to my unit? Try having one or more of your ward web site administrators added as a non-resident member to one of the wards that meet in the stake building you use for your meetings. This way he will be able to view the r...

That is correct. I stated that before they were able to access the calendar real time they had to print the calendar. Since March they have been using real time access.

Before the Presiding Bishopric opened the access to the internet our stake presidency printed the calendar before each meeting in which the calendar was to be discussed. They were so happy to hear they could access the calendar real time and save a few trees. I guess we can add this to the list requ...
