Can there be more than 1 member of a family on the church checking account?
I know of no law against; however, it is not an ideal situation. I know that for some small and/or start-up churches, it is their only option.
There needs to be proper internal controls in place though.
If at all possible, the person signing the checks should not be the same person who records expenditures and another unrelated person should do the bank reconciliation each month.
See more measures you can put in place to maintain good internal controls.

If you want to DIY your payroll, I highly recommend you look at using Gusto! It is very user friendly and their support is awesome! Plus they know how to set up and maintain payrolls for churches and nonprofit organizations.
Note: I am a "partner" of Gusto, but as I have told you before ... I never recommend anything that we or our clients have not tried and love =)
