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...

Year end errors

After closing out the year, we've been unable to access certain functions - enter expenses, donations, finance reports, etc. Ive done several send/receives with no success. Anyone else having this problem?

Re: Other Accounts used for Scout Fund Raising funds

First: none of the funds obtained through charitable fundraising can "inure" to the benefit of an individual. That's fundraising fraud. The primary reason that you aren't having to collect and remit sales tax on this fruit is because you are doing so to promote the aims of the charitable o...

Re: New Wards and Tithing settlement

While the electronic and physical tithing records don't go anywhere, as part of the division, the ward clerk should print the Tithing settlement statements for all affected members and provide them to the new ward clerk(s). At least, that was the policy when I had to do it 5 years ago.

Re: Policy on using local unit funds to purchase television

While the TV is fit for purpose, it should not be replaced. If the picture quality or other factor has deteriorated so to you can not effectively use it then it should qualify for replacement. I think the point the OP was making is that the TV that is available is not fit for their purpose - that p...

Re: Policy on using local unit funds to purchase television

In one building in our stake, the library and Relief Society room are on two levels and the Sisters cannot easily transport an old, non-flat panel TV and cart up and down the stairs. The FM group denied our request for a new, lighter, more manageable TV since the old one is not actually broken. The...

Re: Number of Ward Tithing Status

Right, so while there's nothing online, in response to OP's question, if those summaries aren't readily available in the stake's offices, he can request the clerks reprint it for the previous year, and give him the numbers. If they are available, it's a simple matter of adding up the numbers, rather...

Re: Number of Ward Tithing Status

It's been a while since I was a Finance Clerk, but my recollection is that there were two distinct reports that printed with the Tithing Declaration Report. The first was the Report itself, and the second was the Tithing Declaration Batch Summary Report. Didn't the Batch Summary Report break it dow...
