A scout is reverent. This is the twelfth point of the Scout Law. On Scout Sunday, we have the opportunity to say thank you to State Street United Methodist Church for sponsoring our troop. They provide us with a great meeting space, storage for our gear, vans for transportation, and financial support. Many troops are not as fortunate as we are to have such a strong relationship with their sponsor. We need and expect our scouts to attend, and parents and families are invited to attend, too.
Scouts should meet in the upstairs of the church at 10:30 a.m. Scouts should wear full uniform, including uniform shirt, neckerchief, and either scout pants or jeans. Our scouts will have several roles in the service, including handing out bulletins and assisting with ushering. Continue reading Scout Sunday is February 5th
