Bishopric and Sacrament Meeting Template

Postby mcdarby » Tue Jan 17, 2017 5:07 pm

I am not sure if this is an appropriate venue for posting this, but here is a link to a google sheet that will enable a unit leader to make a customized Bishopric and Sacrament Meeting Template.

This is a sample of what it looks like with fake names.
A) Sacrament and Bishopric Planning Document - https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... dit#gid=52
B) Music Document - https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... =983564742

Feel free to mess around - (all the names are fake.)

And if want to make one for your unit - use this link and follow the instructions - https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... iew#gid=54

Basically this allows us as a Bishopric to plan our speakers and topics and it will automatically update a "pulpit" sheet that we print off (or use ipads) every Sunday.

The music leader has access to the music document. The music document receives the speakers and topics so she can plan music accordingly.

The Bulletin Leader has access to the music document so she can see who is speaking, what the music is, etc.

Since using this I have received and given ZERO calls to / from music leader or bulletin editor about what is happening on a given Sunday.

The Sacrament Planner also tracks when someone last spoke.

Oh and if you are stuck for a speaker and topic - click the Liahona for guidance . . . . .

Also - if you enable the options in the SETUP tab, it can send out automatic email reminders for Spiritual Thought and Handbook training assignments for Bishopric and automatic emails for Ward Council / PEC reminders and Spiritual Thought assignments. You choose what time the emails go out and what the message is and they will read the schedule on the planner and send out automatically.

IF this is not an appropriate venue for this - feel free to move it or delete! I'm just putting this out there as it has been an enormous time saver for our Bishopric. Its still a work in progress (still finding a few bugs) so just keep that it mind.
