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 down...

Re: tear-off portion of deposit bags

Just so you know, the tear-off portion of the bag is actually incredibly useful to the bank if they need to investigate the disappearance/misplacement of the deposit bag. Depending on where you make your deposit, the bank's employees are likely not the ones first handling the bag. That is probably a...

Re: Cease and Desist? ldsscriptures.com

My understanding is that the ldsscriptures app and the LDS Scripture Citation Index are totally different apps, created by separate developers (ldsscriptures is done by Michael Jensen, Citation Index by Steve Liddle). The Scripture Citation Index is still available, likely because it doesn't merely ...

Re: Auditing

I began my first audit last Tuesday and the Bishop had to leave before we were finished. We were close to the end, but after reading that the work would be saved I exited LUFAS and made an appointment to finish up on Sunday. When I went in yesterday to complete the audit, it said the audit had not ...

Re: Jan to June financial audit

It is my understanding that the Bishop must approve every expense disbursement in the ward. In my ward, and in every ward in the Stake, many expense reimbursement requests are approved by a Bishopric Counselor under oral permission by the Bishop. If this is considered inappropriate in the upcoming ...

Re: Storage of weekly donation records

The old stationary envelopes is exactly what we were trying to get away from since it is so difficult to review as an auditor, especially to check for sequential processing of the weekly batches. I also enjoy breaking "traditions", even in the clerk's office. There is no way we could fit ...

Re: Counselors entering donations

Obviously I am confused. The Financial clerk who usually initiates donation batches doesn't have any more View Membership permission than the bishopric counselor, does he? Why do you need full View Membership permission to enter donation batches? My two counselors do tithing batches all the time du...

Re: Presenting duty to god certificate: deacon, teacher and

Also, don't forget about the On My Honor Award, the LDS religious award for scouting. For the youth, there are only two requirements - (1) complete the requirements for the Duty to God certificate for deacons (or for another Duty to God certificate) and (2) achieve the Scout rank of Star in the Unit...

Re: Direct Deposit, Can anyone do this, and if so how?

I need to bring in the statements that the church sends me. I'm not sure I see the need to bring in any statements. Your answer to the bishop's question, "Are you a full-tithe payer" doesn't change regardless of what statements you bring in, and I've never seen a bishop demand proof. It's...
