This Sunday, at churches nationwide, you’ll see Scouts and Scouters in uniform greeting the congregation, participating in worship services, earning religious awards and conducting service projects to benefit their place of worship. By official BSA designation, Scout Sunday is always the Sunday that falls on or before February 8, Scouting Anniversary Day. Scout Sunday is a chance for faith-based chartered organizations to celebrate and recognize Scouting and for Scout units to show their appreciation for the religious institution that supports their unit. HPCUMC charters Cub Scout Pack 113 and Boy Scout Troop 114. To learn more about scouting at HPCUMC, go to www.hydeparkchurch.org/scouts.
