Scout Sunday—HELP NEEDED


Sunday February 7th—8:30am to 12:00pm


The Boy Scouts of America annually celebrates its founding on February 8, 1910, based on the program started by Lord Baden Powell in England on August 1, 1907. Scout Sunday was added to the Scout celebration in the middle 1940s. Scout Sunday is always the Sunday preceding February 8th, unless the 8th is a Sunday, in which case the 8th would be Scout Sunday. The Saturday following February 8th is Scout Sabbath.


The Scout Sunday tradition was started to make people in houses of worship aware of Scouting, and to allow Scouts to live out their "Duty to God" pledged each week.

The Scout Law says that a "Scout is Reverent" and the Scouts of all ages promise to do their "Duty to God". These values strengthen youth character in their family, community and faith.


Our troop has been lacking in the last several years, in supporting our charter organization.  Please plan on attending a secession at Prince of Peace to show our support in what they do for us.  There is a sign up sheet with times from 8:30am to 10:15am or 10:15am to 12:00pm.  Please we don’t want to tell the church we don’t have enough support to do this again this year.
