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.

Re: 18 Year old YM vs 18 Year old YW

May I suuggest someone run up the flagpole that for USA wards that automove of YW be changed to happen at 19 like it does for YM. Most 18 year old YW stay in YW until they graduate or turn 19. Handbook 10.1.5 allows this. Clerks could then move to RS when a conscious decision is made my her and her...

Re: changing category names

I would like to change the name of the account I am not sure you can change the name of the account once it has been used. It should be possible (at least it used to be). Go to Finance > Budget > Add/Update Categories on the menu. Find the category you want to rename, right click and select 'Rename...

Re: How to transfer money from Ward Mission Fund to a missio

I realize this may be a basic process, but we have a missionary account for a missionary who has long since returned from his mission--but during his mission his family moved several times and ... long story short ... our ward has a balance on his missionary account that I am trying to close out us...

Re: Ward Missionary Subcategory adding

The Missionary Department does make the addition when the missionary is first called, but it makes it to the ward that has pledged to support that missionary. If the supporting ward changes, because, for instance, the family moves, then the bishops of the two wards coordinate the changeover, includi...

Re: Moneygram made out to the Bishop

From time to time, we'd receive checks payable to the bishop, rather than the ward. We jokingly called them the bishop's "tips," and handled them as described above. We never had a problem with them coming back.

Re: Civil Marriage and then a ceremony

I am engaged to a man who is not a member of the church and my wonderful bishop is going to perform the civil ceremony in April. But I was wondering what the churches policy is on getting married at city hall (essentially eloping) and then still having a ceremony for friends and family in April. Is...
