Celebrate Scouting at Your Place of Worship

Posted on Jan 23 2015 - 6:27pm

For more than 100 years, Boy Scouts have enjoyed the support of religious organizations. Together, we have enriched the spiritual lives of local youth - each of whom strives from the perspective of their own beliefs to live up to the Scout Oath and Law.

Celebrate this partnership between Scouting and our religious partners by taking part in a Scout Sunday or Scout Sabbath celebration at your place of worship.  Scout Sunday and Scout Sabbath offer worshipers the opportunity to honor Scouting, and learn more about the value Scouting provides to the young people of their congregation. Now is the time to talk with the leader of your place of worship about holding a Scout Sunday on February 8, 2015 or a Scout Sabbath on February 14, 2015 - or any other time in the month of February.

Click here for resources to help make your Scout Sunday or Scout Sabbath a success.  Scout Sunday and Scout Sabbath is a great time to invite other families in your congregation to join the fun of Scouting. Families can come together to get more engaged in faith while having fun and promoting values, leadership, and service in their children.

The Atlanta Area Council wants to help you share Scouting with your place of worship.

to order a set of customized bulletin inserts that you can share during your Scout Sunday or Scout Sabbath celebration.
