Scout Sunday, February 4

Hello Troop 648 – We hope you all have Scout Sunday on your calendars from the flyers that have come home from the last few meetings. We would like to have an idea of how many scouts will attend, so please sign up at the next two meetings, or you may email [email protected] Please plan to meet Pastor Kevin in the courtyard (dressed in your Class A uniform) no later than 9:30am.

Additional details include:

– Scouts will assist in greeting, handing out bulletins, and possibly helping to collect offering (older Scouts only). The service starts at 10am and we can usually wind down our ‘posts’ around 10:15am or so after we accommodate any late-comers. At approximately 11am, we can man our ‘posts’ once again to extend greetings as our guests leave the service.

– Dean Butler will have a display from his Scouting Museum in our Courtyard. It would be great to post a few Scouts of various ages/levels at that display – provided we have enough Scouts in attendance.

– Everyone is invited to join in the regular Sunday Morning activities! Andie’s Coffee opens at 8am and will remain open until 12noon – an awesome hangout anytime. Scouts and their families are welcome to join for Worship or kids (Birth thru 5th grade) are free to join in Children’s Ministry and students (6th thru 12th grade) may join in Student/Youth Ministry. Parents will need to check in their children who wish to attend Children’s Ministry, prior to the service, in ROOM 11, straight across the courtyard from the Worship Center.

Thank you,

Jacob Hoberg
Chaplain Aide

Meeting Planning

Hello Troop 648 – A few items related to meeting planning…

– This week’s meeting (1/23) has been designated for rank advancement. Please come prepared to complete some requirements.

– We are still looking for someone to finish out our Winter Camping theme for the 1/30 meeting. Please contact David Yu or Mrs. Hoberg if you would like to lead that meeting (even if you have a topic/activity idea unrelated to winter camping).

– The meeting theme for February is Leadership and for March is Boating/Canoeing. We will be brainstorming some ideas for specific topics/activites at the meeting this week, so please give it some thought. Mrs. Hoberg has a lead for a presenter in February, so if you would like to use it as an opportunity to plan your first meeting, please contact her.

– Reminder – Each scout should be planning at least two meetings a year. Please click here to use the Sign-up Genius previously sent out to review available meeting dates and themes. If you have a great meeting idea that does not fit one of the upcoming “themes” please let David Yu or Mrs. Hoberg know.
