Online Temple scheduling

Postby miriamcareybrown » Sun Mar 25, 2018 7:27 am

We recently had a regional conference where they talked about youth lining up around the block at 3 in the morning to do baptisms. There were so many, each youth only did two names. Our youth are very willing to sacrifice to do the work of the Lord, but maybe we could use their sacrifice more efficiently. If the temples could have online scheduling available on the ldstools app where you could see which times were available during the week and schedule a slot, perhaps the temples would get more baptisms done because youth would not line up to all go on the same day. I think this would help the adults as well.

Have you discussed that concern with your stake president? He's probably in the best position to get something to happen. Just to avoid possible misunderstanding, this is a user-to-user forum, not an official support/help request channel. There are a few Church employees and likely a few higher-level leaders who frequent the forums but not (as far as I'm aware) in an official capacity based on their jobs or callings.

Regarding scheduling of youth baptisms, for the Portland Oregon Temple, each ward schedules a date and time well in advance. Ward YM/YW leaders coordinate car pooling and enlisting adults to be there to assist.

By the way, I noticed this thread is in the 'LDS Media Library' area, which is intended to be specific to the LDS Media app. I will be moving the thread, probably to the General Discussions area unless I see a better fit between now and then.
