Scout Sunday

On February 12, 2017 Cub Scout Pack 71 and Boy Scout Troop 71 came together at Solomon's United Church of Christ to worship the Lord and to say 'Thank You' to Solomon's for their continuous commitment to both the Pack and the Troop.  Solomon's United Church of Christ has chartered both groups for over 80 years.  Scout Sunday is one of many ways the boys come together to say thank you to Solomon's United Church of Christ.

A Psalm for Scouts and Scouters

The Lord God is our Great Scoutmaster who provides all our needs.  He lets us camp in forests tall and meadows green.  He leads us on trails besides waters deep and still, brooks babbling, streams rushing, and rivers raging.  He restores our bodies, minds and souls, even as we observe the eagle soaring to greater heights above.  He encourages the Eagle Scout in his upward climb.  He teaches Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts, and Venturers to live the Scout Oath and Law.  Even though the trails may lead through dark valleys with towering mountains we are courageous because he leads us onward.  He continually blesses us with food for mind and body.  Even when our enemies dislike or distrust us, he blesses us with the gifts of love and forgiveness.  Surely, his goodness and mercy will sustain us all the days of our lives.  And, when we climb the final trail through the awesome pass that leads to the Great Council fire, we shall join those who traveled the trail before us and joyfully live with him forever!
