Signatures for Melchizedek Priesthood Certificates

Every once in a while our stake president presides at a Melchizedek Priesthood ordination. It always seems a little strange to have him sign the certificate as the stake president and again as the stake representative. I'm curious how others handle this.

Re: Church Service Missionaries in MLS

Thanks Ryan. It looks like we were fed some misinformation on how to get church service missionaries into the CSM system.

Are you suggesting that the church service missionary application and MLS are not yet integrated? This seems to be counter to the instruction which we received.

Church Service Missionaries in MLS

I have been instructed to have the ward clerks in my stake input church service missionaries serving from their ward into MLS. I think the idea is that MLS will then sync up with the new church service missionary application and allow the stake president to manage these assignments through the appli...

That's a tough spot. Hopefully that age and experience will give him the wisdom to recognize his good bishop's keys.

Re: Policy on MLS User Rights

I had this same discussion with a ward clerk during his membership audit. He argued that the EQP and HPGL needed "edit membership" privileges, because they collect updated information during their visits to households. The clerk wants them to update the records with whatever they find. I ...

Policy on MLS User Rights

I am in the midst of performing the annual membership audits in our stake. Each year when I do this, I always end up not being able to give an authoritative answer as to which rights each calling should have in MLS. Normally, this is what I tell the clerks: Bishop & Ward Clerk - Full administrat...

Re: Projector mounting

For what its worth, we had the FM group buy a screen for our high council room and had their approval to wire and install a projector in that room. Then they got instructions from the Presiding Bishopric to hold all projector installations until further notice. If you have been paying attention over...

Re: 501c3 Copy

A church is not required to apply for recognition as a 501(c)(3) - they qualify without application (subject to the IRS later coming in and disputing that they are actually a church). The church itself does not have an IRS letter of the type you are seeking (but it does have a 2003 letter from the I...
