2017 Scout Sunday

Posted in: Pack News by rlgray on January 23, 2017

A Scout is Reverent.

The Boy Scouts of America designates the Sunday that falls on or before the Scouting Anniversary Day as Scout Sunday. This is the primary date to recognize the contributions of young people and adults to Scouting. The Methodist Church recognizes Scout Sunday on the Second Sunday of February.

This year, Scout Sunday will be observed during the services on February 12th at FUMC Cary in cooperation with Troop 200 and Crew 200.

All scouts are invited to participate as ushers and greeters in the Sunday services to visibly show the church thanks for their support of the Scouting ministry.

A sign-up form is available online which lists all the available times and positions needed for each service at FUMC:

Scouts participating from Pack 200 should wear their full Class A uniforms (including neckerchief), except no hats.

(If your family attends another church, you should contact your church’s office to find out when your church will be observing Scout Sunday.  Please notify your Cubmaster or ACM so they can credit you for this separate event and ensure delivery of the Scout Sunday patch.)

We are fortunate in that FUMC has three different “types” of service, all trying to meet people where they are in their spiritual walk.

The three traditional church services, at 8:25, 9:45, and 11:05 are in the main sanctuary and are what you think of when you think of a traditional church service.

The Contemporary service at 11:11 is in the fellowship hall where the troop generally meets for our Tuesday night meeting.  This service is more relaxed, they have a live band, and has a more laid back feel.

This year, FUMC has introduced another service at 9:45 and 11:05 in the recently renovated movie theater on Chatham Street. This service, in the small movie theater, has a very pleasant, intimate feel to it.  Much like worshiping is someone’s over sized living room.

Both the Contemporary service and the Chatham Street service serve coffee  🙂
