Actually the best way to send this would be to send it to the registered agent for the Church in your respective state. To find who that is, go to your state's Secretary of State website and find the business entity search. Search for 'Corporation of the Presiding Bishop of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.'
So, for example, if you were in Kansas, your result would be this:https://www.kansas.gov/bess/flow/main?execution=e1s5
You would then address the letter as follows
Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
c/o Corporation Service Company, Registered Agent
2900 SW WANAMAKER DRIVE SUITE 204, TOPEKA, KS 66614
Every out-of-state corporation that does business in another state must register with the Secretary of State and designate a registered agent in that state to receive service of process. The Church has a registered agent in all 50 states. You should also send the letter by certified mail. CC: the records department in Salt Lake and Kirton McConkie. I would recommend this process not only for the follow-up letter, but also for the original resignation.
My feeling is that if enough people push back against the current process, the Church will begin to timely and efficiently process resignations, which ethically and legally they should be doing anyway. I hope this letter goes viral and I hope you'll help that happen.
