To Love God and All People for the Transformation of the World
Boy Scout Troop 101 is for boys ages 11 through 17, grades 5 through Senior in High School. The troop meets every Tuesday evening from 6:30 to 8pm year round. The mission of boy scouts is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law.
On my honor, I will do my best, to do my duty to God and my country, to obey the scout law, to help people at all times, to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.
A scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent.
Boy Scout Troop 101 is heavily involved in community and FUMC service and support, while having fun camping, high adventure outings and international camporees. For more information, please contact Karen Chuvalas by clicking here.
July 23, 2017 -- Troop Update
Since May, Boy Scout Troop 101 had a weekend camping trip in Michigan and marched in the Marysville Memorial Parade. They completed a service project keeping the Amrine Cemetery neat and clean. The week of June 18-24th the Boy Scout Troop completed a great week at Seven Ranges Summer Camp. Each scout achieved at least 3 merit badges and enjoyed fishing, canoeing, hiking with the objective to move up to the next rank in the troop. In August, they have a campout scheduled at the Richwood Gun Club where they will learn shotgun and rifle shooting, as well as safety.
As the school year begins in August, our Cub Scout Pack will begin their season here at Marysville First United Methodist Church. Cub Scouting is for boys in the first through fifth grades, or 7 to 10 years of age. Boys who are older than 10 are eligible to join the Boy Scout Troop. Cub Scout meetings are held regularly on Tuesday evenings from 7pm to 8pm. Parents are invited to join in on the fun along with their youth to provide true enjoyment of the program and great activities. Cub Scouts go on outings, cookouts, campouts, visitations to the fire station, police station, and get to race their personally created Pinewood Derby Cars! Please let me know if you’re interested. The program begins August 29th, 7:00 pm at the church. The more the merrier! Contact Karen Chuvalas (937) 642-4559.
