Re: Regional Broadcast September 13th

In the past, I've seen a link show up for about a day at https://www.lds.org/broadcasts/stake-conference?lang=eng. The link is for a live-stream, not a recording, and it disappears soon after.

Re: 10 Year Old in 11 Year Old Boy Scouts

The joining requirements of Boy Scouts of America include an age requirement: "Be a boy who is 11 years old, or one who has completed the fifth grade or earned the Arrow of Light Award and is at least 10 years old, but is not yet 18 years old." Thus the age requirement can be met in three ...

Re: Checks made payable to the Church

Bank accounts are set up in the name of the unit, not the church, so checks should be made out to the unit. Not necessarily. The larger banks may have deposit concentration, meaning that many different wards may be depositing funds into the same account. The account is titled under the Corp. of the...

Re: Reimbursement Form/Payment Request Form

After I was released as a finance clerk, I was called to be on the Scout Committee. The reimbursement form had been created at some point in history using Excel. Typically, we just printed it, and had hard copies available for anyone to fill out. Since my new calling involved dealing with a number o...

Re: Missionary Move-in

The current bishop needs to have a conversation with the old bishop, in which the current bishop agrees to take on the financial responsibility for the missionary. Then, they coordinate a date (can be in the past) when the responsibility transfers. Once that's done, someone (can be a clerk) can send...

Re: Duty To God Medallions

Instead, if the youth who has completed the requirements for a Duty to God Certificate is also a scout, and has reached the rank of Star, he can be awarded the On My Honor Award. The On My Honor Award is a green and gold ribbon with a silver fleur-de-lis overlain with the Angel Moroni.

Re: How to pay tithing online?

My Bishop, in Sacrament Meeting this past Sunday, got on members about putting a note in the Fast Offering envelope the Deacon's bring around on Sunday morning. They kept saying I pay my FO when I pay my tithing and wanted to be removed from the route. He said that 'The Church' is trying to build t...

Re: Help with Fast Offering Expenses without Recipients

I wish you hadn't done that. First, you've falsified the records by creating a fictitious person for the purpose of circumventing the requirement to include the FO recipient. Second, the name of the assisted member shows up in the Consolidated Unit Financial Statement (CUFS). Part of what the bishop...

I've even seen it created as early as within a couple days of the date the call was issued.
