BOY SCOUT SUNDAY (February 11, 2018)
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. 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.
ASH WEDNESDAY SERVICE
A special Ash Wednesday worship service will be held on February 14 at 6:15pm in the Sanctuary. We will have our usual pot luck dinner prior to the service. We will not have Bible Study that night. Please join us as we begin the journey of the Lenten Season to prepare ourselves for the celebration of Easter.
