Marysville First United Methodist Church offers scouting ministries for boys and girls (Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts and Boys Scouts) which emphasize shared leadership, learning about one's community, family understanding, character development, citizenship training, and personal fitness.
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, hiking, and high adventure outings.

Cub Scouting is fun! If you are in, 1st through 5th, it can be a blast. Do you like to learn by doing? This is just the place. You can learn to tie knots, set up a tent, shoot a bow and arrow (archery). Have you ever cooked a meal on a campfire? Sent a secret code to a buddy? build a bird house? Play Ultimate? Hike? Earn rewards for doing these things in Cub Scouts. Check the Cub Scout Pack 101 web site on the link below. Join us on Tuesday nights from 7-8pm @ MFUMC during the school year.
The Cub Scout pack 101 is a mimistry of the First United Methodist Church. We have witnessed great things with the families involved in scouting because of the activities and inclusion: campouts, cookouts, Pinewood Derby, and Den meetings every Tuesday all of which are family oriented. It's a time to BE WITH your children in partnership to help them grow into kind, respectful, well rounded, mature adults. For more information contact: Mike Chuvalas
